Okay Kaya is building up an impressive body of gorgeous, timeless music and mesmerizing videos to match. Her new song “I’m Stupid (But I Love You)” follows “Damn, Gravity” and “Clenched Teeth,” and comes alongside the announcement of a handful of UK tour dates early next year.
The New York-based Norwegian artist wrote and recorded “I’m Stupid (But I Love You)” with Tobias Jesso Jr., who plays piano on it, at New York’s legendary Electric Lady Studios, during a break on tour. She explains the song:
“Its just something an ex said to me during a break up. It was a way to show that person that I’d learned to cherish how vulnerable we are in that moment. It took me a while to figure that out.”
The simple but arresting video was directed by Sam Kuhn. Watch above and check the tour dates below.
