Lauv Drops New Single With Julia Michaels, ‘There’s No Way’

Indie singer Lauv dropped a new single and video on Thursday featuring artist and hit songwriter Julia Michaels called “There’s No Way.” The pair are set to perform the single on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” on Oct. 1.

Michaels said on writing the song, “Writing with Ari [Leff, Lauv’s real name] 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 two.”

“There’s No Way is about wanting to be with someone but sometimes the timing is wrong,” Michaels added.

Lauv will be returning to the US next month to kick of the US leg of his Fall 2018 World Tour and open on select dates for Ed Sheeran’s stadium tour. Full routing below.
