When romantic longing is threatened, Carly Rae Jepsen gets to be a full-blown action hero. “I’ll hijack you,” she sings for my child frenetic new song “Making the Most in the Night.” “Baby, I’m speeding, and red lights I run / What I’ve got, you require it,” she promises over pulsating synths and funky bass. “And I’ll go to your side as soon as your heart is bleeding / I’m visiting get ya.”
Jepsen and Sia co-wrote “Making the Most from the Night” with Samuel Dixon, Emre Ramazanoglu along with the Trinity, with production on the High Street. The track is Jepsen’s latest offering from her upcoming third LP, Emotion, out August 21st via Schoolboy Records/Interscope. In March, the Canadian singer released her bold single “I Really Like You,” which she promoted that has a cameo-filled video starring Tom Hanks and Justin Bieber. Jepsen announced the album in June, releasing the dynamic “Run Away With Me” the next month.

Emotion will be the hyped follow-up to Jepsen’s 2012 U.S. debut, Kiss, which spawned the smash single “Call Me Maybe.” Jepsen recorded the modern LP across Los Angeles, New York and Stockholm, collaborating with the eclectic list of writers and producers – including Sia, Shellback (Taylor Swift, Maroon 5), Greg Kurstin (Kelly Clarkson, Katy Perry), Ariel Rechtshaid (Haim, Madonna), Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij and Blood Orange’s Devonté Hynes.
In April, Jepsen debuted Emotion cut “All That” on Saturday Night Live with the assistance of Hynes and Rechtshaid. The singer promises to celebrate the album release by having an August 21st performance of “Run Away With Me” on NBC’s The Today Show within its annual summer concert series.
