LISTEN + REVIEW: Julia Michaels and Selena Gomez Team Up For “Anxiety”

By  | 

Singer-songwriter extraordinaire, JULIA MICHAELS has released her collaboration with Selena Gomez.  The song begins with an acoustic pop up-beat ballad. The song is an introspective masterpiece. The song tells the feelings and emotions someone with anxiety and depression goes through on a daily basis. Often people with mental illness struggle to find the words to explain what they’re going through, somehow Michaels has that down to a science. After listening to this song, every person with anxiety will say “I can relate” or have their friends and family listen to it to better understand their struggles. While listening to the song I was hanging on to every single word, as cliche as it may sound. The song is a laid back song you can bop your head along to while still having a strong important message lyrically.

Earlier this month Michaels announced the release of INNER MONOLOGUE PART I. The anxiously awaited new collection of songs arrives at all digital service providers on January 25, 2019.

About the her upcoming EP, Julia wrote, “Couldn’t be more nervous if I tried. But here’s a piece of my mind and my heart.” It promises to be her most passionate, powerful, and personal body of work yet.

Additionally, she excitedly unveils the details for her first-ever headline tour across North America, THE INNER MONOLOGUE TOUR. It launches on March 4 at House of Blues in Lake Buena Vista, FL, rolls throughout the country, and concludes May 10 at House of Blues Cleveland in Cleveland, OH. Tickets will be on sale January 23rd at 10am local time at

This month, Michaels will tour with country superstar Keith Urban in Australia, before returning to join P!nk on the U.S. leg of The Beautiful Trauma World Tour beginning March 2019.
