Ingrid Michaelson Pays Homage To Robert Palmer With New Video “Girls Chase Boys”

Singer-songwriter Ingrid Michaelson single, “Girls Chase Boys” from her upcoming album Lights Out (avail April 15th) is available now. The video for “Girls Chase Boys” features ingenious choreography and artistic direction that pays homage to Robert Palmer’s, “Simply Irresistible.”

“‘Girls Chase Boys'” started out as a break up song but took on a deeper meaning as I continued writing.” More than just being about my experience, its focus shifted to include the idea that, no matter who or how we love, we are all the same. The video takes that idea one step further and attempts to turn stereotypical gender roles on their head. Girls don’t exclusively chase boys, we all know this. We all chase each other and in the end we are all chasing after the same thing: love.” – Ingrid Michaelson

Lights Out, Ingrid Michaelson’s fifth studio album, will be released on April 15th via Cabin 24/Mom+Pop and is now available to pre-order through iTunes.

Ingrid Michaelson will embark on a nationwide tour that kicks off April 21st in Montreal at Le National and will visit major markets such as Seattle, Portland, Austin, Los Angeles, Nashville, New York, DC concluding on June 1st in Boston at the House of Blues. Full tour dates are below.

“Ingrid Michaelson has made the video of 2014… Ingrid Michaelson is today’s little voice that’s making the loudest of sound”

“This can easily be the biggest hit of her career! This song is such a smash! We have been playing it on repeat”
Perez Hilton

“It’s sexual without being sexist, and the end result is something that feels pretty empowering and straight-up fun.”

“Already gained traction for not only its remake… but also its gender-bending backup dancers… As the music industry progresses to include a wider array of sexuality and gender expression, Michaelson’s video will soon become the new normal.”
The Washington Post

“Ingrid Michaelson has legit done it, AGAIN! TRANSLATION: IT’S PERFECT”
MTV Buzzworthy

“The singer immediately responded to criticism on Facebook… Nobody messes with Ingrid”
