Lindsay Ell just released an absolutely stunning music video to accompany her latest single, “I Don’t Love You.”

Set in a field of gorgeous flowers, the Justin Keys-directed clip brings the poignant song to life through beautiful imagery and symbolic messages. Featuring Ell dressed in a soft, elegant ball grown adorned with florals and beading, the clip gives off “he loves me, he loves me not” vibes as flower petals fall throughout various scenes of the video. “I Don’t Love You” is Ell’s most vulnerable song and music video to date and is a true testament to her artistry.

Serving as the lead release off Ell’s forthcoming sophomore album, “I Don’t Love You” finds the singer sharing details about life after a breakup. The emotional lyrics explain how she doesn’t want to do things she used to do “’cause they’re not as good without someone to share them with.”

And although she doesn’t love her ex anymore, she admits she still misses him every now and then.

“I don’t love you/ Baby, I don’t love you/ I don’t love you anymore/ But I still miss you, still miss you sometimes,” she sings throughout the heartwrenching chorus.

“I Don’t Love You” was co-written by Adam Hambrick, Melissa Fuller and Neil Medley.

“You know how there are different stages of grief?” Ell says. “This is the first stage. You’re still in denial, figuring out the reality of falling out of love with someone, and that it’s okay to miss things about them. It takes strength to be honest with yourself about feeling that.”

Ell, who is nominated for ACM New Female Artist of the Year and Music Event of the Year for “What Happens In A Small Town,” her chart-topping duet with Brantley Gilbert, is currently touring Germany and the Netherlands performing as part of the C2C Festival in Berlin and Amsterdam.
