Today, just a few days after the one-year anniversary of E•MO•TION, Carly Rae Jepsen has gifted us with an E•MO•TION B-sides collection made up of 8 songs that didn’t make the cut on the album. Speaking as a true stan, it’s clear why some of these may have been left behind, but it’s still 8 more CRJ songs than we had before, and her driving, lovesick synth-pop is a worthwhile listen under any circumstance. Jepsen shared a note to go along with the release:
Emotion Side B almost never was. Well, technically all the songs existed I just didn’t think to share them until we toured. But meeting many of you face to face, getting to share in one of the most joyful touring experiences of my life, all I wanted was to give back more of the feelings you all gave me. So this is for you guys, a B sides album full of some extra tunes we made on the journey to Emotion. I hope you enjoy. And thank you for making the past year so incredible. The memes, the covers, the parties, and the shows. You keep me inspired. So yeah…new album on the way…but here’s something to hold yah over till then.
;) All the love.
