Carly Rae Jepsen Confirms October Album Release

Following the May release of her lead single ‘Western Wind,’ Carly Rae Jepsen has unveiled ‘The Loneliest Time’ her forthcoming full length of 13 main songs plus three bonus tracks.

Alongside the artwork and adjacent to golden pears and white roses, the 36-year old singer/songwriter took to Instagram writing “I’m quite fascinated by loneliness. It can be really beautiful when you turn it over and look at it. Just like love, it can cause some extreme human reactions.”

Recorded in isolation during the COVID-19 pandemic, Carly said previously of the remote working period:

“The most awkward thing for me so far has been trying to do writing sessions over Zoom.” “You’re trying to spark creativity with, sometimes, a complete stranger. It’s just a really awkward beginning process. We’re staring at each other like, ‘Can I call you back when we each have some ideas?’ I’m always writing, chipping away at a couple ideas here and there. Right now I would say it’s been the most successful with my guitarist Tavish [Crowe], who’s based in Canada, just because we are really used to each other’s flow and I don’t feel self-conscious sending him a voice memo, even if it sounds crap. I know he trusts that we’ll get it to the right place.”

Teasing that every song on the LP sounds “completely different” she added “Writing songs over Zoom has been an interesting challenge. I’ve been working with Tavish Crowe – luckily we’ve been collaborators for years, so we really know each other well.” “We have our own little baby quarantine album by now.” “When I don’t have an album immediately due, I just allow myself to experiment.” “If you heard what we were making you’d be like, ‘every song sounds completely different’ – and that’s the point.”

Scheduled for an October release, the forthcoming Carly Rae Jepsen full length is is the follow-up to 2019’s ‘Dedicated’ and its 2020 companion record ‘Dedicated B’.
