Pop songstress Carly Rae Jepsen has released a new track, “Making the Most of the Night,” from her forthcoming album, Emotion.
The song is most likely the last single she will release from her upcoming sophomore album, out August 21. The last track she released from Emotion, entitled “Warm Blood,” has an ethereal pop beat with Jepsen’s light vocals over it as she sings about romance. It’s not a mellow song, but far less catchy than Jepsen’s previous hits “Call Me Maybe” and “I Really Like You.”
“Making the Most of the Night” is a more upbeat track, with Jepsen singing a repetitive and catchy chorus seemingly meant to motivate. The verses contain heartfelt lyrics, which could be partially explained by Sia’s writing credit on the song. As The Fader reports, Sia is a “reliable hitmaker” but she is also well-known for writing about somewhat deep and personal topics. Judging by the songs that Jepsen has already shared from Emotion, it seems as though this album could be a bigger hit than her previous one. Listen to “Making the Most of the Night” below.
The Canadian singer-songwriter released her track “Call Me Maybe” in 2011 in Canada, and it arrived in the states in 2012, soon becoming a viral hit. She was soon signed to Schoolboy Records, the label that still represents her and is releasing her forthcoming album. “Call Me Maybe” appeared on her 2012 album, Kiss, and Jepsen has been a household name since then. In 2013, among her many public appearances was a gig at the Summer Sonic music festival in Japan where she played among a variety of artists, including Alt-J, Capital Cities and John Legend. Grimes included her on a list of favorite pop songs of 2012, which Grimes later had to defend to those who criticize the genre of pop music.
