OFFICIAL PRESS RELEASE
NEWS PROVIDED BY
NEW YORK, NY (September 13, 2019) – Grammy® Award-nominated multi-platinum singer and songwriter JULIA MICHAELS releases a standalone track, “If You Need Me”, inspired by Season 2 of the acclaimed and powerful Facebook Watch original series Sorry For Your Loss. Listen to it BELOW.
Julia's inspiration for the track came from meeting and hearing from survivors of grief- all of whom formed an emotional bond of shared experience in the Sorry For Your Loss official Facebook Group. Since the first season, the group has evolved into a place where a community has gathered to share their stories, support one another and build connections as a direct result of these conversations.
Says Julia: “Even when someone is not with you, you can still feel them with you. I wanted the chorus to be “If you need me, I’m there”… even if I can’t physically be there, I’m still there. That can be about the person that isn’t visibly here anymore, and it can be about the community they have built within Sorry For Your Loss.”
Additional content of Julia’s meeting with the survivors, as well as a special performance video, will be released in the coming weeks.
“If You Need Me” arrives following Julia’s latest EP release, Inner Monologue Part 2.
Julia will bring the EP to life on the second leg of THE INNER MONOLOGUE TOUR – currently playing 17 shows across Europe, with the US leg kicking off on October 16 in Tempe, AZ and stopping coast-to-coast. Tickets are on-sale now BELOW.
Season Two of Sorry For Your Loss premieres on Tuesday, October 1 at 12pmPT/3pmET with three episodes, on Facebook Watch. Binge watch the first season on the Sorry For Your Loss page on Facebook Watch.
Julia Michaels "If You Need Me" | SINGLE
GRAMMY ® Award-nominated singer and songwriter Julia Michaels has transformed the pop music landscape not only from behind-the-scenes as one of the most in-demand songwriters, but in the spotlight as a solo artist as well. Her rapid rise can be attributed to identifiable honesty in every lyric, as exemplified in her triple-platinum selling debut single “Issues”. In 2018, she garnered GRAMMY® Awards nominations in the categories of “Best New Artist” and “Song of the Year” for “Issues,” which amassed nearly 2 billion streams worldwide. Continuing that success, “Issues” notably became “the top-selling debut single by an artist in 2017,” and placed as the only solo female composition on Variety’s “30 Most Consumed Songs of 2017.”
As a songwriter, MICHAELS has co-written 21 titles that have charted on the Billboard Hot 100, eleven of which have hit the Top 40, including "Issues." Those songwriting credits include smashes like Justin Bieber’s “Sorry,” Selena Gomez’s “Good for You” [feat. A$AP Rocky] & “Hands To Myself,” and Hailee Steinfeld’s “Love Myself.” She’s also written titles for Britney Spears, Gwen Stefani, Linkin Park, Ed Sheeran, John Legend, P!NK, Maroon 5, Jessie Ware, Janelle Monae, Keith Urban, Shawn Mendes and more. The cumulative worldwide stream tally for songs she has co-written is 20 billion to date.
Since her debut as a solo artist, MICHAELS has built an enviable touring resume, joining artists like Maroon 5, Keith Urban, Shawn Mendes, Niall Horan, and P!NK, around the globe.
