Carly Rae Jepsen – “I Really Like You (Bleachers Remix)” (Stereogum Premiere)
If you live in Japan, where Carly Rae Jepsen’s new album E•MO•TION has already been released, you know that it’s pretty much the best pop album to come out so far this year. If you don’t, well… “I Really Like You” is still a jam of a lead single, and here it’s been given a little punch up courtesy of Jack Antonoff’s Bleachers project. Antonoff and Jepsen worked together on some of the reportedly 250+ songs that were written for the record and, while none of them seem to have made the final cut, his remix of the track demonstrates why their artistic tendencies work so well together. Antonoff adds some military drums throughout, sets up a clankier run-up to the chorus, and then breaks it all down in the final minute. Check it out below.
