Audrey’s Team Pick:
OH MY SWEET QUEER BABY HEART. Mary Lambert has given us a gift at the end of this wretched week. It is a music video about how sometimes all we can possibly do is hang out with our perfect dog and our hot, awkward girlfriend, and how it’s ok to lean into that desire.
Lord do I feel that.
Mary’s latest single, “Hang Out With You,” is a perfect summer pop song. Here’s the story behind it in her own words via Facebook:
“It’s here!! It’s here! It’s heeeeeeere! “Hang Out With You” is out today! Michelle Chamuel and I wrote this song when I was under serious pressure to write the next “hit.” I got so fed up trying to write something everyone else wanted me to write and at one point I just said, “I don’t want to write a song. I just want to hang out with you.” Michelle yelled, “HOT DOG! That’s a song!” And then I thought, “who should produce it…? YOU, most talented woman!” And it was done.
Chamuel is also Mary Lambert’s real-life partner and one of the co-stars of this most music video. The other co-star is a golden retriever!!
In the words of staff writer Maddie:
BUT THEN INDEED!
Here y’all go. Be blessed.
