It’s been three years since Carly Rae Jepsen released her third album, E•MO•TION — which we named one of the best albums of 2015 — but the underground Queen Of Everything has been far from quiet in the time since. She’s collaborated with everyone from Charli XCX to Blood Orange to Danny L Harle and she’s put out some music on her own, a very good E•MO•TION B-sides collection and last year’s one-off “Cut To The Feeling.”
Today, Jepsen is releasing a brand-new song, “Party For One.” It was produced by Captain Cuts and HIGHTOWER and co-written by Jepsen, Anton Rundberg, Julia Karlsson, and Tavish Crowe. It’s meant to kick off a new era — a new album is scheduled to be released next year.
“To me ‘Party For One’ is an anthem of what it is to celebrate time with yourself, which is a hard thing for people to really enjoy sometimes, and it’s something I’m learning to do more and more,” Jepsen said in a press release. “This song represents a lot of what this album is about for me which is romantic love but self-love too.”
