‘Love is Weird’ lyric video
‘Love is Weird’ follows on from Julia’s recently released singles ‘All My Exes’ and ‘Lie Like This’, all of which are taken from her highly anticipated debut album Not in Chronological Order. The 10-track album is due for release on April 30.
Speaking about the album, Julia said in a release: “The way that I saw the tracklisting in my head, a lot of the heartbreak came in the middle, and finding new love came at the end. That’s the arc of this album: I’m not bitter about love anymore. I know what functional love is like and being in love and being hesitant about that love because it feels so perfect.”
