Remi Wolf has dropped a new single, ‘Michael’.
The track – a video for which will follow at 5pm GMT – is taken from a deluxe edition of the former Dork cover star’s debut album ‘Juno’, set for release on 3rd June. Remi’s coming to the UK soon too, with shows at London’s newly refurbished KOKO on 14th June, and Manchester Academy on 16th June.
“I wrote ‘Michael’ with my friends Aaron Maine (known as the artist, Porches) and Jack DeMeo,” she explains. “It was me and Aaron’s first time working together, and we had both just gotten back from a wild trip to Miami, so that energy carried over into the session. We wrote 3 songs that day but ‘Michael’ really stood out to us.
“When I was writing the song, I was just free-styling and letting words fall out. The meaning has come to me now after a couple months. The song paints a picture of a manic and obsessed woman who craves the high she gets from Michael’s attention and is willing to delve deep into an masochistic toxic pit to get it.
“I wanted the video to really paint a picture of this lady running around the city trying to find Michael. We filmed run and gun style in Argentina while I was on tour there, it was a bit of a whirlwind, which in the end added to the mania of the video.”
