“I i would love you to miss me when I’m not close to you,” Jepsen sings about the track around the desire to be greater than friends with your ex romantic interest. The electro-pop track has less urgency than her previously released songs, including “Run Away With Me” and “Making the Most from the Night.”
Jepsen launched her new album using the March single, “I Really Like You.” The shimmering, catchy track was that has a silly video featuring Tom Hanks lip-syncing the and a joyful cameo from Justin Bieber.
Her next video for single “Run Away With Me” became a more intimate, DIY clip. Directed by David Kalani Larkins, the recording followed Jepsen through adventures in Tokyo, Paris and New York as she sang the tune.
Emotion is going to be released on August 21st via Schoolboy Records/Interscope. It’s Jepsen’s third LP and follows up her 2012 U.S. debut Kiss, which had been led by her breakthrough hit “Call Me Maybe.” In the process of producing her new album, Jepsen recorded in New York, Stockholm and Los Angeles. She found herself co-writing the tracks having a diverse variety of both indie and Top 40 songwriters and producers, including Sia, Shellback, Greg Kurstin, Ariel Rechtshaid, Blood Orange’s Devonté Hynes and Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij.
