Independent singer, songwriter, producer, and pop visionary Lauv releases irresistible new single and video ‘There’s No Way’, featuring Julia Michaels. They are set to perform the single on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert on October 1st.
Julia Michaels said on writing the song, “Writing with Ari is equal parts funny and serious. He’s the kind of person that can tap into an emotion and then say something random to break up the heaviness in a room. I love that about him.”
Lauv added, “Julia is an absolute legend not only as a songwriter but just as a human being. The first time we met we didn’t even write a song, we just talked about life and emo bands and stuff. A few days later me, her, Justin Tranter and Ian Kirkpatrick got into the room and wrote There’s No Way. For me the song is about meeting someone and immediately feeling that connection where you can’t help but have crazy chemistry, and though your lives don’t quite line up in that moment, you know someday everything could go down between you too.”
The new single comes on the heels of the newly released fan inspired track ‘Superhero.’ The inspiration behind the track ‘Superhero’ came to Lauv in a unique way. On his tour earlier this year, he placed a blue box at the merch table at shows as a way for fans to get thoughts and feelings off their chest anonymously. Lauv later came across an entry that read, "I met a superhero. I lost her. I want her back." He wrote this song after being inspired by the entry and afterward, found the anonymous songwriter to credit him and learn more about his story.
This past summer, Lauv performed his hit single, ‘I Like Me Better’, on the Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, as well as the 2018 Teen Choice Awards and 2018 MTV Video Music Awards. The single reached the Top 10 of Top 40 US radio. A highlight of his 2018 project ‘I met you when I was 18.’, the song recently went double platinum in the US and he has now surpassed over 1 billion cumulative streams worldwide.
Lauv will be returning to the US next month to kick of the US leg of his Fall 2018 World Tour and will open on select dates for Ed Sheeran’s stadium tour. Full schedule below.
