Last month, we previewed Jenny Lewis’ long-awaited comeback track, “Just One Of The Guys,” which featured a photo carousel of the singer wearing her now-signature rainbow suit—the one that also graces the cover of her new album, The Voyager, which is out July 29.
To celebrate the album’s upcoming release, Lewis has put out an official video—which she directed herself!—for the single. The clip is sort of a play on Robert Palmer’s “Addicted To Love” set-up, but with a gaggle of the singer’s famous female cohorts standing in for the tube-dressed drones. The video stars Kristen Stewart, Brie Larsen and Anne Hathaway as Lewis’ white suit-wearing and barefoot backup band. (I also think I spy Tennessee Thomas, former member of The Like and owner of NYC boutique The Deep End Club, on drums, but I can’t be totally sure.) Keep reading »
It’s been six long years since we’ve heard any solo tunes from Jenny Lewis, and every day without her mellifluous voice has been harder than the one before it. However, at long last, it looks like the musical drought is over! This week, the ex-Rilo Kiley frontwoman released the lyric video for “Just One Of The Guys,” the first single off her long-awaited third album, The Voyager, out July 29. [Does cabbage patch dance here.]
Directed by Lior Molcho, the clip features a photo carrousel of Jenny in various poses, sporting a pair of white cat-eye sunglasses while wearing a white suit with a rainbow airbrushed on the top half of the jacket. Visually, the lyric video is an extension of the album’s cover art, which features Lewis wearing the same ensemble, and was shot by famed photographer Autumn de Wilde. Keep reading »
Just a few weeks after breaking up with Taylor Swift over the phone, Jake Gyllenhaal had to make a quick decision on who to bring as his date to the Golden Globes. In the end, he decided that Jenny Lewis, the frontwoman of the band Rilo Kiley—who he dated back in 2001—would be the appropriate arm candy. It’s unlikely that the two are actually hooking up now—Jake’s camp assures that they “went as friends,” which makes sense since Jenny is currently dating Johnathan Rice. The two even play together in a band called Jenny and Johnny, but maybe at some point it could become Jenny and Jakey?
After the jump, how Taylor and Jenny stack up. Not that it’s a competition or anything. Keep reading »
This week, I saw Rilo Kiley play — Jenny Lewis is the cutest. This girl’s hair reminds me of Jenny’s hair, though I hear reddish hair is hard to manage in the summer (if it’s not natural, it might get brassy). Oh well, at least you can wear some simple sneakers like hers — they remind me of Now and Then. [Trender Bender] Keep reading »
