NEW YORK – April 2, 2021 – Grammy® Award-nominated multiplatinum singer and songwriter JULIA MICHAELS has unleashed the clever and campy music video for her latest single “All Your Exes.”
Watch the music video for “All Your Exes”—HERE.
In the visual directed by Blythe Thomas, she quite literally brings the song to life in bloody good fashion. Nodding to cult classics such as Serial Mom and American Psycho, Julia invites her boyfriend’s exes over for “dinner.” What follows is brutally hilarious as there’s no chance anybody will ever bring up her significant other’s past trysts ever again.
Consider yourself warned…
“I think this is the most fun I’ve ever had making a music video,” she commented. “I’ve never really played a character before, so it was fun to let loose and show a side of me that fans haven’t seen,” she says. “I feel like we all have those moments in relationships where our minds go to ridiculous places- like clearly I don’t want to kill your exes, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t thought about it,” she laughs. “This album shows another side of me, because for the first time I’ve experienced a new kind of love, one that has been happy and healthy, and the songs reflect that. Oh wow, that sounds gross hearing myself say that,” she laughs “but I’m still excited to share them,” she adds.
A clip of the video premiered yesterday on YouTube Originals weekly music show, "RELEASED," which premieres every Thursday night at 11:45pm ET in the moments before the world’s top artists drop their new music, only on YouTube.
Last week, JULIA unveiled “All Your Exes.” Co-written with Grammy nominated singer and songwriter JP Saxe, the track immediately garnered critical acclaim. Entertainment Weekly hailed it “a deliciously wicked delight,” with The New York Times praising it as “harsh, funny, sad and relatably petty.” FLOOD Magazine called it “a prime example of a vulnerable pop-punk banger,” while Billboard noted “Michaels has a tendency to throttle her listeners with her pen -- and on the muscular, virtuosic “All Your Exes,” she makes sure that your attention is focused entirely on her seething jealousy.” Meanwhile, V Magazine summarized “There’s something to ditching fairytale notions of love that Julia Michaels fully gets as she returns to the front of the stage once again.”
Be on the lookout for additional details on her forthcoming album, arriving April 30.
