EW YORK - September 26, 2019 – Grammy® Award-nominated multiplatinum singer and songwriter JULIA MICHAELS today releases a powerful music performance video for her track, “If You Need Me”, inspired by Season 2 of the acclaimed and powerful Facebook Watch original series Sorry For Your Loss.

Watch via Facebook Watch below and VEVO below.

Footage spanning both a music performance video and an engaging behind-the-scenes video, shows Julia personally meeting and learning from community members - all of whom formed an emotional bond from their own shared experience with grief in the Sorry For Your Loss official Facebook Group. Since the first season of the show, the group has evolved into a place where a community gathers to share their stories, support one another and build connections, all as a direct result of these conversations.

Julia Michaels remembers: “When I first met Carol [one of the group members], she said those women were a tribe. There are many people out there who are willing to love you, and willing to listen – you just have to find the right people who will do that.”

Michaels adds: “When I read all the comments around Sorry For Your Loss, about everybody being there for each other, I sort of wanted to write [the song] from that angle. I think that’s one of the best parts about songwriting, that I can channel someone’s feelings and put them into a song.”

“If You Need Me” arrives following Julia’s latest EP release, Inner Monologue Part 2.

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.
