Julie is an EP released by Jens Lekman.

The cover art is by Rasmus Hägg and Jens Lekman. The title song "Julie" is a melancholic love song which starts with an invitation to a vending machine to buy Julie a wedding ring and includes a fatalistic reference to failing to "pray for the angels" and them causing the couple to jump from the Eiffel Tower. Julie also involves a pun between Swedish and English which is a common feature in Lekman's music – Jul is the Swedish name for the Christmas celebration and sleigh bells can be heard in the background.
