Ingrid Michaelson releases "Parachute" video
After writing the song, deeming it too poppy, and it finding its way to British pop star Cheryl Cole, Ingrid Michaelson has reclaimed the track. Released as a single last month, today the video premiered at EW.com. The video directed by Adria Petty (who also directed Beyonce's "Sweet Dreams" and Duffy's "Mercy" videos) features Michaelson as a jet-pack wearing Indiana Jones-like adventurer and is markedly different than Cole's high fashion, choreographed endeavor. The track is still a bit poppy and yet somehow works for Michaelson, who trades in her trademark glasses for styled hair and make-up, in a way that's still enjoyable and sincere as her other productions.
