It’s been over a year since Carly Rae Jepsen and her single Call Me Maybe became a hit sensation. Now, the Canadian Idol alum and recent American Idol guest star is on the verge of releasing another album. Will she be able to recapture the success of first international release Kiss?
Carly Rae Jepsen is known as the ‘poppiest’ of the pop artists and it looks like that trend will continue in her upcoming album. But Carly Rae warns listeners to not just expect more of the same. While there will certainly be similarities to the hit album that contained the likes of Call Me Maybe and Good Time, Carly Rae is also looking to switch things up a bit. As she recently explained to Billboard, she’s currently in the midst of working on “a pop album, but… an album that is my own version of pop.”
So, what is Carly Rae’s version of pop? The singer lists Kimbra, Dragonette and La Roux as her current musical inspirations, so perhaps we’ll hear a little of their influence on the next album. She says she admires these three artists because “they don’t do just your regular kind of pop songs. There’s some stuff to hold onto and dig into.”
Fans can also expect Carly Rae Jepsen to hear a bit of folk in Carly Rae Jepsen’s future work. Just think of it as the Canadian re-emerging from the pop singer’s soul. “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.”
