Carly Rae Jepsen has announced her next project, “The Loveliest Time.” By now, all Carly fans have come to expect a “B-sides” release that pairs with the albums theme; but this time Jepsen didn’t feel right calling them B-sides. This is a continuation on the journey that leads you from “The Loneliest Time” to “The Loveliest Time.” If you didn’t get a chance to check out it’s predecessor, now would be the time.
“The Loneliest Time” is a critically-acclaimed (what else is new for Ms. Jepsen?) record that plays with different sounds within the spectrum of pop. The record is full of songs that easily could have been radio hits; like “Joshua Tree” and “Beach House.” Unfortunately, Carly has had a hard time gaining the general publics attention after they played “Call Me Maybe” until they could no longer handle the song. That’s one of the cons of having a world-wide undeniable hit; people eventually grow tired of what they once loved.
Carly Rae Jepsen – Beach House
But, luckily for us, the gays have found an artist they can fully relate to, and in a sense, not have to share with everyone else. Her releases chart, her tours sell out and she has the ability to make music for the rest of her life; regardless of her GP popularity, she is a bonafide star.
With that said, we cannot wait for the release of the new record. She has a way of adding to a project that makes you not only fall in love (again) with the original record, but also fills in the “missing pieces” that deserve to be heard.
Check out the official announcement below;
Carly Rae Jepsen – Shy Boy
The “lead” single for this project is “Shy Boy.” The track is an actual disco song; from the arrangement to the band… it gives you that ’70s vibe that not everyone is capable of channeling. If this is a taste of what we’re about to go, I am sincerely unprepared for what’s coming my way, and I’m okay with that. There is no release date just yet, but one can assume it’s dropping within the next few months.
