Carly Rae Jepsen Teases New Single “Now That I Found You”
New Music Friday kicks off in a matter of hours, but my mind is already focussed on next week. On February 27, to be exact. That’s the day that Carly Rae Jepsen unleashes “Now That I Found You.” The second single from the Canadian pop star’s 4th LP (justice for “Party For One”) is shaping up to be quintessential CRJ. From the preview she shared on social media, it sounds like a sugary sweet synth-pop concoction with feathery vocals and cute lyrics. “Waking up next to you every morning, how did we get this far?” Carly Rae ponders in the snippet. “It came without a warning.”
“My heart’s a secret, I think I’m coming alive, I think I’m coming alive with you,” the “Cut To The Feeling” singer coos. “Tell me you’ll keep it, I think I’m coming alive, yeah I come alive with you.” The 33-year-old has been chipping away at this album for the best part of three years. She has already recorded more than 80 songs (including a batch of ’70s-referencing bops that are destined to gather dust on her laptop for eternity) and worked with some of pop’s biggest names.
