(UK) Multi-platinum, GRAMMY-nominated singer-songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen will release her new album, E·MO·TION via Schoolboy Records/Interscope on September 25th in the UK. The album will be available for pre-order from all retailers on June 23rd. Those who pre-order will receive instant downloads of “I Really Like You,” “All That,” and the title track, “Emotion.”
Jepsen has also announced that the follow-up to her Top 3 UK hit “I Really Like You” will be “Run Away With Me”, produced by Shellback and released September 18th with a video to follow soon.
Jepsen performed the singles “I Really Like You” and Pitchfork’s “Best New Track”, “All That” on Saturday Night Live in the US earlier this year. The former track earned the Canadian singer and songwriter a host of positive reviews with NOISEY saying “Welcome to Bangerville”, THE SUN ON SUNDAY calling it “insanely, infectious comeback” DIGITAL SPY deeming it an “a glorious 80s pop production” and BUZZFEED declaring it “completely perfect…pop perfection.”
“I Really Like You” even got the cast members of The Avengers film, including Robert Downey Jr and Scarlett Johannsson, singing along to the track and going viral!
E·MO·TION was recorded and produced in Los Angeles, New York, and Stockholm. Jepsen co-wrote the album with several A-list producers and co-writers, including Sia, Greg Kurstin (Kelly Clarkson “Stronger”), Peter Svensson (Cardigans, and Ariana Grande “Love Me Harder”), Ariel Rechtshaid (Haim, Madonna, Vampire Weekend, Major Lazer), Mattman & Robin (Tove Lo, Taylor Swift), Carl and Rami (Ariana Grande “One Last Time”), Rostam Batmanglij (Vampire Weekend), Devonté Hynes (Blood Orange), Shellback (Maroon 5, Taylor Swift) and more.
E·MO·TION is the follow-up to Jepsen’s U.S. debut album Kiss, which featured her blockbuster break-out hit “Call Me Maybe.” “Call Me Maybe” climbed to No. 1 on the iTunes Singles charts in over 47 countries and has sold over 17 million singles worldwide to date. It earned Jepsen 2012 GRAMMY nominations for Best Pop Solo Performance and Song of the Year. Kiss also spawned the follow-up hit “Good Time,” a duet with Owl City, which has been certified double-platinum. Jepsen spent much of 2014 starring in the Broadway production of Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella, earning rave reviews.
