Julia Michaels Drops New Music Video for “Little Did I Know”, Performs “All Your Exes” on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert
- American singer-songwriter Julia Michaels dropped a new music video for “Little Did I Know” directed by Blythe Thomas.
The song is included on her debut album “Not in Chronological Order”, which was released on April 30, 2021.
She wrote the song with her boy friend and Canadian singer-songwriter JP Saxe, who appeared on ending of the video.
Julia Michaels told Apple Music, “I wrote 'Little Did I Know' with JP. I had a session with an artist that day, and it didn't go the way that I really wanted it to. I think I just put [too] much pressure on myself because I wanted it to be great. I remember coming home and looking at JP, just being like, “I need to write something that feels sincere and honest.” He was like, “Alright, well, let's do it. I'm happy to help you.” We started it in bed on the guitar, we went to sleep, woke up the next day, he sat on the bathtub, I was standing on the bathroom floor. We wrote it there. We wrote it in a park. We wrote it in his old house [which] he turned into a studio. When it came time to record it, it was July, it was the middle of the pandemic. My vocal producer Ben Rice, who's done all my vocals since I was 21, 22 years old, came over. He set up his equipment in my guest bedroom. I sang everything in the guest bedroom. Then JP and I did all the choir stacking vocals. What you hear is from that day, most of it—the only thing that has changed is that we added a couple more choir stacks with a few friends of ours, just for some added texture.”
Also, before the release of the album, she appeared on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert to perform “All Your Exes”.
She said of “All Your Exes”, “There was a moment where JP was like, 'Maybe one day in the future, we'll be able to talk about the people from our past that have shaped our present.' I was like, 'Fuck that. I don't give a shit about anyone you've ever dated, ever.' And he was like, 'Well, baby, you can't just live in a world where all my exes are dead.' I sarcastically sang the first two lines of the song in the car, and we decided to go to the studio the next day and write it.”
