- JP Saxe has drooped the new single 'Hey Stupid, I Love You.'
Singer-songwriter JP Saxe has dropped the new single “Hey Stupid, I Love You” from his forthcoming project out later this year.
Saxe wrote the song with Scott Harris (Shawn Mendes) and produced by Ojivolta. The release is accompanied by an official quarantine-style, heartwarming music video, directed by Lillie Wojcik. View the video below.
“I’ve recently figured out that when someone asks you for more love, it’s easier just to give it to them, than to convince them they don’t need it. Also, after a few songs that feel a lot like who I am alone at 3am at my piano, grueling and emotional, this one feels more like me at 3pm, and it feels like the way I love – rambling, and dorky but ultimately sincere,” said Saxe. “That’s what we wanted the video to feel like, and shooting it with long distance lenses all outside made for a real silly (and sunburnt) day.”
“Hey Stupid, I Love You” follows the success of his duet with Grammy Award-nominated artist, Julia Michaels, titled “If The World Was Ending” produced by the five-time Grammy Award winner FINNEAS (Billie Eilish). The song reached No. 14 in the Official UK charts and remained in the Top 40 for 12 weeks.
Saxe made his late-night debut performing “If The World Was Ending” onThe Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon last November, with a follow-up remote performance on the Late Late Show With James Corden during quarantine in April.
Saxe has a weekly IG live series called “HOMETEAM LIVE” where he performs original music, and invites artists and friends from all genres and backgrounds for thoughtful conversation and performances.
“Hey Stupid, I Love You” is now available on music streaming platforms.
