Carly Rae Jepsen – “Run Away With Me” & “Your Type”

The rollout of Carly Rae Jepsen’s new album, E•MO•TION, is a weird one — it’s being released in Japan on Wednesday, where Jepsen has a large fanbase, which means that it’ll be available in certain corners of the internet if you know where to look. But it won’t see a worldwide release until 8/21, almost two months after that. It’s an interesting release schedule, one that seems agnostic to how free-flowing the internet actually is, but maybe it won’t matter. Because I’ve spent about a week with a copy of the album, and it’s really, really, really good. And I could see this being the type of album that people want to lay down money for.

Two tracks from the album were played on a Spanish radio station earlier today, and they’ve found their way online. “Run Away With Me” is set to be the next single for the album, with a video to come in mid-July, and it’s a big, shining, shamelessly bombastic pop song that could storm the charts in a perfect world, but will probably end up a sensation that doesn’t bubble up from the pop underground. “Your Type” is another massive track, and at its best parts it sounds like a mix of Robyn and ’80s cheese. It’s awesome. Listen to both of those below.
