Carly Rae Jepsen Reveals She’s “Already Made An Entire Quarantine Album”

Charli XCX isn’t the only pop star who’s written and recorded an entire album during lockdown. Carly Rae Jepsen, who just surprise-released her new album, Dedicated Side Brevealed she’s already made “an entire quarantine album” with longtime collaborator Travish Crowe.

In an interview on the Switched On Pop podcast, the Canadian singer called the album “very different”, adding: “We had to do it around Zoom or things like that so it’s been like a challenge but a really fun one! You kind of write differently that way. You have more time to have space inbetween the decisions you’re making and more time to kind of be away from the song for a minute, so I find it to be a whole new style of going at it, and I like it.”

Jepsen first revealed that she’s been working on new songs in an interview with the Guardian last week. “When I don’t have an album immediately due, I just allow myself to experiment,” she said. “If you heard what we were making you’d be like, ‘every song sounds completely different’ — and that’s the point.”

We still have no idea when the album will be released, or if it will even see the light of day. Last year, Jepsen revelead she’d made a disco album that she has no intention of releasing. “I had an album I named ‘Disco Sweat’ that will probably never be released, and shouldn’t,” she said.
