Julia Nunes
‘I Think You Know’

This freebie is the title track of the new EP from YouTube star Julia Nunes, due out February 2 via her own Rude Butler Records. Produced by Jack Conte of fellow YouTubers Pomplamoose (whose brilliant version of Beyoncé’s ‘Single Ladies’ can be seen here), it’s the New Yorker’s first new material since 2008’s second album I Wrote These and continues her winning combination of smart, funny lyrics with ukulele-based, toe-tappingly percussive arrangements. There’s a toy piano in here too, with extra verve provided by handclaps and some lovely layered vocal harmonies. If it all starts out a little too whimsical for you, listen to the end to hear Julia inject some real passion into the vocals. Playful yet a little bit serious, it promises good things from a still-developing songwriter, and makes the forthcoming EP one to watch out for. MP3 after the jump.

Just to be sure: all the mp3s from “Free Music Friday” posts are legal (as opposed to uploads for sampling purposes only), right?

Absolutely. We never post an MP3 we don’t have permission for.
