Multi-platinum Grammy, Juno and Polaris Prize nominated singer/songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen releases two new songs today, February 27, on School Boy/Interscope Records. “Now That I Found You” and “No Drug Like Me” are available now at all digital retailers and will appear on Jepsen’s forthcoming album which is set for release in 2019. “Now That I Found You” will be featured as Zane Lowe’s World Record today on Apple Music’s Beats 1.
Says Jepsen of her new tunes, “’Now That I Found You’ is about the high you get when a new love starts to change your life. It’s like the rush, rush, rush is better than any drug. Which leads me to ‘No Drug Like Me" which is a promise I made to love in general. That when the good stuff lands my way I’ll always try to be vulnerable and brave and show all of myself - ‘If you make me feel in love then I’ll blossom for you.’”
Jepsen's 2015 album E*MO*TION, earned a host of rave reviews with several outlets - including TIME, Entertainment Weekly, Pitchfork, People, Stereogum, Vulture, Complex, and Noisey- declaring it the pop album of 2015. The set featured the platinum selling single "I Really Like You." One year later Jepsen released E*MO*TION Side B as a gift to her fans and saw it immediately rise to the iTunes Top 10 . E*MO*TION followed the release of Jepsen’s U.S. debut album Kiss featuring the blockbuster break-out hit "Call Me Maybe" which climbed to #1 on the iTunes Singles charts in over 47 countries, has sold over 20 million singles worldwide and is certified Diamond in the United States. It earned Jepsen 2012 Grammy nominations for Best Pop Solo Performance and Song of the Year.
Jepsen landed the lead role in the 2014 Broadway production of Rodgers & Hammerstein's Cinderella and later starred as the iconic Pink Lady, "Frenchy," in FOX's four-time EMMY award winning musical GREASE: LIVE. Most recently Jepsen voiced the character of Odette in the animated movie “LEAP!". “LEAP!” featured Jepsen’s song “Cut To The Feeling” which has been hailed by critics as a top song of 2017 showing up on year end “Best Of” lists for Rolling Stone, Pitchfork, Billboard, Noisey and more. Jepsen released the self-love anthem “Party For One” in November 2018.
