28 JULY 2017 (TORONTO, ON) – Today, Julia Michaels releases the anxiously awaited Nervous System, a self-proclaimed “mini-album” via Republic Records/Universal Music Canada, the country’s leading music company. The seven-song compilation has already soared to #2 on the iTunes Top Pop Albums Chart and continues to hold strong. Among new anthems included is the record-breaking smash, “Issues” and the latest infectious single, “Uh Huh.”
“A lot of my songs have to do with the nervous system and things that are stimulated by touch and emotion,” says Michaels. “One day, the title just popped into my head. It made sense with how emotional the songs I’ve written are and who I am. Of course, I personally am a fucking nervous system as well, so there’s that.”
From the off-kilter nineties-inspired groove of “Make It Up To You” and the urgent breakup anthem “Just Do It”, to the hyper-flirty and fiery come hither of “Pink” and the soul-stirring piano and vocal finale, “Don’t Wanna Think”, Michaels further cements her status as one of the most prolific songwriters and best new acts of this generation.
Last night, Michaels debuted “Uh Huh” for the first time on network television on The Late Late Show with James Corden, and will hit the stage again on August 1 to perform “Issues” and “Uh Huh” on NBC’s Today Show. Michaels also unveiled another powerful performance video today in the brand new “Stripped” take on, “Worst In Me”.  The video follows up the previously released, popular rendition of “Uh Huh” as part of the Vevo “Stripped” series.  Vevo’s “Stripped” series is part of Vevo’s LIFT program, which is dedicated to elevating a select group of emerging artists.
Nervous System arrives alongside the continuous success of the multi-platinum selling debut single, “Issues”.  With worldwide consumption approaching 4 million, “Issues” is the best-selling song by a new artist released in 2017, according to Nielsen Music. It is also the highest on-demand audio streaming song by a new artist released this year. The song has also become the ninth Top 40 hit Julia Michaels has co-written on the Billboard Hot 100, and marking her first as a solo artist. Latest single, “Uh Huh,” is also rapidly heating up, with over 20 million Spotify streams and glowing praise from Time, V Magazine, Idolator, and more.
To top things off, this week Michaels received her first ever MTV VMA nomination for “Best New Artist” and announced that she will join Shawn Mendes this Fall in Australia and New Zealand for his ILLUMINATE WORLD TOUR. Full list of dates and ticket information online now.
Given the incredible stats and success achieved thus far, Julia Michaels is shaping up to be THE Best New Artist of 2017.
