When Is Carly Rae Jepsen's Next Album? What We Know


Where in the world is Carly Rae Jepsen? The answer is — everywhere. Elite Daily exclusively spoke to the "Call Me Maybe" singer to talk all about life, kissing strangers, and her upcoming album.

Let me tell you, Jepsen is awesome. She's every bit as nice and bubbly as I imagined she would be and I can't wait to hear more of her new music. When I asked what sort of sound we can expect from her new album she told me,

Jepsen certainly has a full plate. She posted on Twitter that she was taking a little break in Italy after writing "like 50 tunes" for her upcoming album.

Jepsen also gushed about working with Patrik Berger, the person who produced Robyn's "Dancing On My Own" and Charli XCX's "The Fault In Our Stars."

If it's anything like Berger's previous work, it will definitely be a catchy hit. As for a release date, Jepsen isn't on any tight deadlines, and definitely likes it that way. She says,

Since I can't stop listening to "Sorry Not Sorry" and "Cut To The Feeling," I wondered what Jepsen listens to for inspiration. Her answer was a little surprising,

Why is she so cool? Her suggestions were so key and I've been listening to "Baby" on repeat since our chat.

If you're looking to diversify your Spotify playlist, Jepsen is a great resource. One of the things that I personally love about her music are the funky and sometimes out-of-left-field collaborations. No matter who the artist is, she is always able to create something new. So, who does she have her eye on for the next collaboration? She said,

Vulfpeck is an American funk group and I think that would be such a cool collab. Members of Vulfpeck, if you're reading this, please call Carly Rae Jepsen ASAP.

Jepsen talked to me the day of her big pop-up concert in Chicago for the M&M's Spotlight series.

This concert brought fans together for a moment of spontaneous fun through music. I wanted to know the most spontaneous thing she's ever done, and her story literally gave me life. She said,

Jepsen assured me it was a "blue moon moment." Fascinated by her spontaneity, I asked about her exciting new look and the drastic hair change. She said,


The final thing I had to ask about was John Mayer. First, because I'll talk to anyone about John Mayer. Second, because the two have been connected throughout Jepsen's career.

I needed to know every single minute she has spent with John Mayer IRL, and if he's ever read any of my articles. Sadly she said,

Ugh, some people have all the luck. Clearly, Carly Rae Jepsen has been busy. After hearing how passionate she is about her upcoming album, I can't wait to see what hits Jepsen drops next.
