 After writing about loneliness for her last album, Canadian singer and songwriter, Carly Rae Jepsen is leaning into romance on ‘The Loveliest Time’, reported People.

The pop star released her new album on Friday, and the project acts as a companion to last year's ‘The Loneliest Time’, which largely saw her muse on melancholy events experienced throughout the pandemic. Now, she's getting out of her head and onto the dance floor. "I really wanted it to not feel like The Loneliest Time is just this bummer album, and then the other one was just sunshine and flowers," Jepsen, 37, told People. "This is the victory lap of when you embrace your loneliness, look at it and analyze where you're at and where you want to go,” she added.

‘The Loveliest Time’ marks the latest iteration of Jepsen's tradition of releasing a B-sides album concurrently with each of her traditional projects.

As per People, the new body of work was created in the same span of time as The Loneliest Time, as she started to see many of the tracks she'd made as "sister songs" to one another. "'Psychedelic Switch' feels sort of like the sister song to 'The Loneliest Time,' the before and after of the night you decide to run over to your ex's and what the morning after feels like," she said. "It just started to be this weird little puzzle that made sense to me."

Jepsen's management connected her up with producer Cole M.G.N., and this relationship gradually developed from collaborative to romantic. She described one of her new songs, "So Right," as their "meet-cute," and it even opens with a skit about whether or not it's a "good idea" for them to hang out after-hours.

"I would've been too shy beforehand to be like, 'Do you want to do a skit at the beginning?' But now that we're so close, it was just really fun and playful to be like, 'Let's have this very '80s drama skit at the beginning where you ask me if I should come over and I say no, but then I come anyways,'" she explained. "You have to get to a certain level of comfort with somebody before you can get to those really playful, joyful, experimental places."

Fans of Jepsen have only heard ‘So Right’ from the couple, but given that they have been regularly writing together even then, it is likely not the final song they will hear from them."We'll go traveling somewhere, and we'll bring a little acoustic guitar," she said. "I think you'll see a lot more of our collaboration together for future projects, but this is our first little baby out in the world. We're both so excited."

As per People, one of the song's lyrics in particular — "No other guy can help me fly and hold me down at the same time" — acts as a mission statement of sorts for their relationship, as they're on different paths in the same industry. "It's really wild getting to travel and have somebody understand what you do and be like, 'Go chase everything. I'm here when you're home,'" said Jepsen. "I think that's an essential thing for every relationship. You have somebody that's your cheerleader that's not holding you back, but also knows how to hold you down."

Following up on her So Nice Tour from the previous year, Jepsen will perform The Loveliest Time songs live alongside Boygenius (Phoebe Bridgers, Lucy Dacus, and Julien Baker), as well as headlining performances in New York City and Los Angeles. She is also performing at festivals like Lollapalooza in Chicago, where she is hosting two fans in a special suite at the Kimpton Gray Hotel in partnership with IHG Hotels & Resorts.

Any fans who saw one of her recent concerts will likely want to attend again, as she says the experience will be quite different this time around. "I think that because we've been on the road for the entire year, basically everything has just gotten more locked and solid and stronger — even our relationships between bandmates, it's just grown," she said. "It's a lot more playful than it's ever been. We're so excited to have fresh material,” reported People. (ANI)
