Ballerini's picture is set against a backdrop of a starry blue sky, calling to mind some of the same visual aesthetics she established in the music video for the album's first single, "Heartfirst."

Ballerini also shared an audio clip of herself discussing some of the themes behind the record, which revolve around change.

"In my younger years, the idea of change scared me," the singer said. "It had proven to be a faceless force that patterned my past with uncertainty."

But with time and growth, Ballerini said, she came to have a different perspective, learned to let go of things outside of her control and began to embrace the beauty in finding new beginnings.

"This is a season of becoming, healing, loving, dancing and feeling," she said. "And like everything, it is subject to change."
