Pop singer-songwriter Julia Michaels released her new single "Uh Huh" on June 1. She goes for a harder sound on the wild cut.

"Uh Huh" is the second single by Michaels, who is most known for penning hits for pop stars like Justin Bieber, Selena Gomez and Britney Spears. She stepped out on her own earlier this year with the breakthrough ballad "Issues." Now Julia is showing a different side to herself with follow-up "Uh Huh."

"Uh Huh" opens with some acoustic guitar as Michaels muses on about a hookup that's got a hold on her. The more Julia gives into her feelings, the more feeling she injects into high-pitched vocals. "Uh huh! I think you're moving into close / But I think it's my body wanting it the most," Michaels admits atop the amped-up guitar. The production structure is a bit unorthodox for a pop song, but it adds another element to the way Julia wears her heart on her sleeve. Michaels cuts loose on this absolutely electric track.

"Uh Huh" is now available on iTunes and Apple Music. No word yet on when to expect Michaels' debut EP.
