Carly Rae Jepsen has released a new Christmas song called ‘It’s Not Christmas Till Somebody Cries’. Written with Benjamin Romans, CJ Baran, and James Flannigan, the new track finds Jepsen singing about a dysfunctional holiday gathering: “My boyfriend is a vegan so they fed him fish/ My uncle made it worse by talkin’ politics/ I had a few opinions/ Might’ve started a fight.” Check it out below.
“I love the old fashioned movies and the family traditions and the excitement of gifting presents and decorating the tree and and and… my list is endless,” Jepsen said in a statement. “But each year the pressure to have the perfect Christmas always ends in tears. I call it Christmas versus expectation.”
She added: “Christmas holiday is my favorite time of year. I love it, but so often emotions run high and expectation versus reality is something I’d like to shed some light on and hopefully some laughs too in the process. So if you are lucky enough to get to be with the ones that matter most to you this year-embrace it! And if things go south just remember, the secret is to sing a little song to survive… that it’s not Christmas till somebody cries!”
