Today, pop singer Carly Rae Jepsen released her third studio album, Emotion. The album was recorded at multiple locations, in Sweden, California, New York, Tennessee, and Canada.
The twelve track album is heavy on '80s influenced pop music and the latest wave of modern synth-pop. In an interview with Artistdirect while she was recording the album, she said:
My favorite pop artists at the moment are Robyn...Kimbra, La Roux and Dragonette. And I think I have a folky side in my blood from what I used to listen to with my parents, and it'll be fun to incorporate of that more in the verses of the pop songs, a little something deeper to the verses. That's what I love about the pop stars I just named, is they don't do just your regular kind of pop songs. There's some stuff to hold onto and dig into. That's what I want to do.
It's been nearly three years since Jepson's 2012 album, Kiss, which made her a household name with the hit single "Call Me Maybe." This new album proves she's more than a one hit wonder. Emotion stands strong, showing Jepson has matured and grown as an artist who still has a great voice and knack for fun, emotional pop music.
Recommended tracks include "Run Away With Me," "I Really Like You," "All That" (with Dev Hynes), "Boy Problems," "Your Type," "LA Hallucinations," and "I Didn't Just Come Here To Dance."
