Listen: Carly Rae Jepsen covers No Doubt for Spotify Singles Series

Carly Rae Jepsen is showing some serious love to one of the queens of both pop-rock and pop music.

On Wednesday (Oct. 2), the Canadian singer dropped her cover of No Doubt’s 1996 hit single, “Don’t Speak.” The reworked version, which really doesn’t stray far from the original tune, is part of Spotify’s Spotify Singles series.

Taking to social media, the singer shared the track with her followers along with a short message about it.

“Had so much fun recording at the iconic Electric Lady Studios with Spotify,” the singer tweeted.

“Hope you enjoy ‘Want You In My Room’ and my cover of No Doubt’s ‘Don’t Speak.'”

Just so Carly is aware, we’re totally enjoying both of them. Listen to “Want You In My Room” and the “Don’t Speak” cover below.

Arguably No Doubt’s biggest hit (and a quintessential breakup song, if we do say so ourselves), the tune is featured on the group’s third studio album, 1995’s Tragic Kingdom.

In a “say what?!” twist, “Don’t Speak” did not chart on the US Billboard Hot 100 chart due to some weird rules at the time. But, it did get nominated for “Song of the Year” and “Best Pop Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals” at the 1998 Grammy Awards, so that’s a win.

As for Jepsen, the pop star has had a busy year. She released her critically praised fourth studio album, Dedicated, back in May. Prior to its release, the musician unleashed several singles including “Julien,” “Now That I Found You,” “No Drug Like Me,” and “Party of One.”

In support of the 15-track release, she hit the road for her massive Dedicated North American tour during the summer months.

Last week, Jepsen released the music video for “Want You in My Room.” Watch the candy-colored music video for the catchy song above.

Carly Rae Jepsen drops her clone-tastic music video for ‘Too Much’

Happy Dedicated release day to all you Carly Rae Jepsen fans out there! In honor of her fourth studio album’s release, the Canadian singer has shared the music video for one of the album’s tracks, “Too Much.”

The three-and-a-half minute clip begins with Jepsen playing with a keyboard, giving the song it’s very electronic sound. Decked out in her now-iconic platinum bob, white crop top, and dark pants, the singer is soon joined by a group of women who are sporting the same exact attire. As she moves around the set, she is closely followed by her legion of clones.

Following a food fight where some defenseless cupcakes began victims, the clones surround Jepsen with mirrors. The clones assault her on all sides forcing her to take a good look at herself in the mirrors. Maybe this is a metaphor for Jepsen coming to terms with who she is or perhaps it’s just a cool shot.

Watch the music video for “Too Much” above.

“Too Much” joins previously released singles “Julien,” “Now That I Found You,” “No Drug Like Me,” and “Party of One” on Dedicated. In a recent interview with Billboard, Jepsen revealed that she ended up writing 200 songs for the new album and somehow had to whittle it down to 15 tracks. Though a lot of songs were leftover, the singer reveals she may put them on a streaming service or release them in the form of a B-sides album like E•MO•TION: Side B.

“It doesn’t feel like only 15 songs get to be out there. I’ve been hibernating and holding onto my babies, but through B-sides or other avenues I’m excited to share a lot of them,” she tells the publication. Read Jepsen’s full interview here.

Dedicated is the follow-up to Jepsen’s 2015 smash hit, E•MO•TION.

In early April, Jepsen announced plans to embark on a 30-stop tour later this year. The Dedicated tour begins June 27 at the House of Blues in Anaheim and concludes on Aug. 10 at the Wiltern in Los Angeles. The full list of tour dates can be found here.

Carly Rae Jepsen admits she’s ‘Too Much’ in her new single

This time next week, Carly Rae Jepsen’s long-awaited new album will be playing from the speakers of her dedicated fans’ phones. With such a short time left before the new album’s release, it’s not surprising that Jepsen decided to release one last taster track. On Friday (May 10), the Canadian pop star unleashed her fifth single from Dedicated.

Titled “Too Much,” the song’s lyric chronicle how the musician goes up and beyond when she does things like drinking, thinking, dancing, and more just so she can feel some sort of rush. True to her unashamed poppy style, the song features minimal electronics but a whole lot of emotion.

Listen to “Too Much” above.

“Too Much” joins previously released tracks “Julien,” “Now That I Found You,” “No Drug Like Me,” and “Party of One” on DedicatedDedicated is due out next Friday, May 17, through Schoolboy / Interscope Records.

Carly Rae Jepsen shares disco-inspired ‘Julien’

Carly Rae Jepsen has returned with her ode to someone named Julien. On Friday (April 19), the Canadian pop star unleashed the latest single from her upcoming fourth studio effort; a song titled “Julien.” The disco-inspired track confirms what longtime fans of the singer have known for some time; that she knows how to put out solid pop songs.

“‘Julien’ is the song that taught me the heart and direction of this album,” Jepsen posted on Twitter. “Couldn’t keep him for myself any longer.”

Listen to the almost four-minute tune above.

“Julien” joins previously released tracks “Now That I Found You,” “No Drug Like Me,” and “Party of One” on Dedicated. Earlier this month, it was unknown whether “Party of One” would be included on the album after an unofficial tracklist was shared online. Jepsen confirmed the song’s status earlier this week when she posted the record’s official tracklist.

Carly Rae Jepsen shares her purr-fect video for ‘Now That I Found You’

Carly Rae Jepsen just dropped a music video to satisfy all the crazy cat people out there. On Thursday (March 13), the Canadian pop star unveiled the music video for her latest single, “Now That I Found You.” Instead of going the clichéd route by having her fixated on a man, the video finds Jepsen obsessed with a cat.

The four-and-a-half-minute clip begins with Jepsen getting into her car as the rain comes down around her. As she gets into the sports car, she hears meowing and decides to investigate. Situated inside of a cardboard box on top of crumbled newspaper sits a yellow Scottish fold. Like love at first sight, she takes the furry animal home with her.

The video follows Jepsen as she goes about her day, singing the song to the cat. Soon, she ends up with a slew of yellow Scottish folds in her apartment and even begins to rock some cat-themed attire; purr-fect for your cat-obsessive friends. After smoking some catnip, she wakes up from her strange dream only to realize that the cat was missing.

She sets out to look for the cat and ends up back where it all began. She hears the cat meowing, and when she looks up, she sees a man holding the cat. And just like that, it’s love at first meow.

If the music video gives you some serious “Breakfast at Tiffany’s” vibes, then you may be onto something.

Watch the full music video for the new song above.

“Now That I Found You” was directed by Carlos Lopez Estrada and Nelson de Castro while the video was conceptualized by Jepsen.

Jepsen released “Now That I Found You” last month alongside another new single, “No Drug Like Me.” Both tracks as well as 2018’s “Party for One” will reportedly be featured on the singer’s upcoming fourth album, though a release date has yet to be confirmed. Jepsen’s last studio album was 2015’s E•MO•TION.

Watch: Carly Rae Jepsen brings the party in ‘Party for One’

Carly Rae Jepsen is back with another catchy song for you to put on repeat this season. On Thursday (Nov. 1), the Canadian pop star unleashed her latest single, “Party for One.” In addition to unveiling the Captain Cuts and HIGHTOWER-produced track, Jepsen also unleashed the party-centric music video for the tune.

The four-and-a-half-minute clip begins with Jepsen checking into a rundown-looking hotel. After checking in, the viewer watches the singer get comfortable in her room and head straight for the mini-bar. After riffling through the mini-fridge, she settles on the bed and begins to flips through the channels. That’s when she comes upon a commercial for something called “party for one” which jump starts the music video.

Throughout the clip, several different scenes take place simultaneously in different hotels rooms. While the guests are doing their own things in their rooms, the electricity suddenly goes off. Instead of waiting alone in the dark, the guests make their way to the lobby in an attempt to figure out what’s going on. When they are all in the lobby, the electricity suddenly turns on, reveling a massive lobby party with drinks.

“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 statement. “This song represents a lot of what this album is about for me which is romantic love but self-love too.”

Watch the fun music video for “Party for One” above.

“Party of One” comes a year after the pop star released her ultra-catchy summertime hit, “Cut to the Feeling.” In the time in between that and now, she’s released a series of collaborations including “Hate that You Know Me” with Bleachers, “Trouble in the Streets” with BC Unidos, and “Backseat” with Charli XCX.

As if the new song wasn’t enough, Jepsen has confirmed that her new album will see a release time frame of 2019. Jepsen’s last studio album was 2015’s E•MO•TION.

Shadow of the City music festival announces 2016 lineup


The 2nd annual Shadow of the City Music Festival has officially announced its lineup for the 2016 incarnation of the festival. On Monday (March 14), the Jack Antonoff-launched music festival announced its genre-varied lineup. The 1975, Carly Rae Jepsen, FrnkIero andthe Cellabration, and others will make the trip to New Jersey in June.

The music festival which launched in 2015 is the brain child of the Bleachers frontman who explains he wanted to bring something back to his home state of New Jersey. “I always wanted to have a festival in New Jersey, so last year was amazing,” Antonoff tells Entertainment Weekly. “The whole thing is exactly what I hoped it would be, which is just like, if I was 15 and could throw a party and invite 10,000 people, that’s what it would look like.”

But while Bleachers were one of the many headliners for the inaugural event, the “Rollercoaster” group will not be appearing this year. Instead, another Antonoff band will perform; Steel Train.  “I was just thinking about it, and I was like, okay, I want this [festival] to exist beyond me, but I need to be part of this thing,” Antonoff explains. “I see Shadow of the City as, once a year, I can do something very bizarre, whether it’s get Steel Train back together, or talk to my friends about coming and doing a show with me. I want it to exist as a place where people can expect that I’m going to do something totally out-there.”

Check out the lineup for the music festival which is scheduled to take place at Seaside Heights, NJ on June 18.


Stream Two New Carly Rae Jepsen Tracks

Carly Rae Jepsen’s third studio album isn’t set to hit store until late August, but now, thanks to some internet savvy person with a Soundcloud account, two more songs from the impending record have been leaked.

Following the success of lead single “I Really Like You” and the Saturday Night Live debut of the second single, “All That,” two new tracks have surfaced on the internet, following their premiere on a Japanese radio station.

According to Stereogum, one of the two tracks, “Run Away with Me,” is set to be the next single from E•MO•TION with a music video for it set to be released in mid-July. As for the second, “Your Type,” there doesn’t seem to be a real reason as to why it was played, but maybe it will be a single in the near future?

Who knows. Listen to both songs below.

As pointed out by Stereogum, for some reasons unknown, E•MO•TION is set to be released on Wednesday, June 24 in Japan, almost two months before it is scheduled to hit shelves worldwide on Aug. 21.

In other words, expect for more songs to surface online following its Japanese release date.

Watch Tom Hanks Channel Carly Rae Jepsen in “I Really Like You”

Carly Rae Jepsen’s new song, “I Really Like You” became an instant hit and a great follow-up to the infectious “Call Me Maybe.”

Before the song made its debut on the web earlier this week, video of Jepsen and actor Tom Hanks on the set of the music video for the track was posted online. The Instagram video captured the duo, as well as Justin Bieber, on the set dancing alongside a huge crowd.

Now, the official music video has been released. In a kind of creepy twist, the video predominately features Hanks going about his morning (waking up at 5 a.m., getting asked for a picture/autograph, riding a cab) while lip-syncing the track as he makes his way to the real shoot for the “music video.”

Check it all out below.

While promoting the song, Jepsen revealed she had worked with Tegan and Sara on several songs which were being considered for her new album as well as her collaborations with Dev Hynes, Ariel Rechtshaid. The new album, which will feature 11 new tracks, is set to be released sometime this Summer through Schoolboy Records/Interscope.
