When I talked to Carly Rae Jepsen for our April cover story, she mentioned that there were a ton of E•MO•TION leftovers that she’d like to package into a B-sides collection, and it looks like she’s managed to do just that. Yesterday, on the one-year anniversary of E•MO•TION (bless us), Jepsen announced that our “anniversary present” is coming this Friday (8/26). It’s not clear yet how many tracks we’re getting just yet, but she did include a preview of “First Time,” a song that originally surfaced as a Japanese bonus track earlier this year and will presumably be included in the B-sides collection. Check that out below and get excited for our queen to bestow some new music!
