Technicolored psych-pop wunderkind Remi Wolf released her debut album Juno last fall. Today, she's already revealed plans for a deluxe version of the 13-track project by sharing a new single called "Michael," which was written with Porches' Aaron Maine and Jack DeMeo. The revamped album will also come with two additional new songs and reworkings of the album's originals.
“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," Wolf detailed. "We wrote three 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 any masochistic toxic pit to get it."
"Michael" finds Remi venturing into creepier indie rock territory. The song's repetitive nature adds to the unsettling character Wolf inhabits, but also recalls a similar song structure to the tracks on Porches' All Day Gentle Hold ! from last year. The single comes with a hyper-saturated video where Wolf twirls around with a green apple and smears pink lipstick on her face. "I wanted the video to really paint a picture of this lady running around the city trying to find Michael," she added. "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.”
