Academy Award nominated actress and multi-platinum recording artist Hailee Steinfeld makes her directorial debut with the official video for her new single, “I Love You’s” (Republic Records), out now. Co-directed alongside Sarah McColgan (Charli XCX, Kelly Clarkson, Mariah Carey), the beautifully stark video finds Hailee confined in a room alone. Hailee explains, “I had gone through a break up and felt for the longest time that I was in this confined space. It took some time but I eventually realized that even in a confined space, you can find yourself, you can learn to love yourself again, and you can give yourself the opportunity to heal. And that’s what this song and video mean to me. Eventually the walls can come down and everything will be ok.” View the video here: https://haileesteinfeld.lnk.to/ILYsVideoPR

Hailee released “I Love You’s” last Thursday after teasing the new single on social media earlier in the week. The “new self-love anthem” (MTV) has already amassed over 3.2 million streams worldwide and was heralded as an “upbeat ode to Annie Lennox’s iconic ‘No More I Love You’s’” by Entertainment Weekly. “I Love You’s” is the lead single from her forthcoming two part project. Part 1 will feature five songs, including “I Love You’s” and “Wrong Direction,” and will be released on May 1.
