Upon its release, the seven-song set soared to #2 on iTunesâ€™ Top Pop Albums Chart where it continues to hold strong. Among seven new anthems, it includes the record-breaking smash â€œIssuesâ€ and infectious new single â€œUh Huh.â€
About Nervous System, Michaels shares, â€œA lot of my songs have to do with the nervous system and things that are stimulated by touch and emotion. One day, the title just popped into my head. It made sense with how emotional the songs Iâ€™ve written are and who I am. Of course, I personally am a fucking nervous system as well, so thereâ€™s that,â€ she laughs.
From the off-kilter nineties-inspired groove of â€œMake It Up To Youâ€ and the urgent breakup anthem â€œJust Do Itâ€ to the hyper-flirty and fiery come hither of â€œPinkâ€ and the soul-stirring piano and vocal finale â€œDonâ€™t Wanna Thinkâ€â€”solely penned by Michaelsâ€”she further cements her status as one of this generationâ€™s most prolific songwriters and best new acts.
This week, she received her very first MTV VMA nomination for â€œBest New Artist.â€Â Next up, you can watch MICHAELS hit the stage on NBCâ€™s Today Show August 1st to perform â€œIssuesâ€ and â€œUh Huhâ€ and willÂ joinÂ Shawn Mendes in Australia and New Zealand for his ILLUMINATE WORLD TOUR.
