NEW MUSIC: CARLY RAE JEPSEN | WESTERN WIND

Canadian singer Carly Rae Jepsen is back with some new music as she debuted her new single, “Western Wild." This past week, the "Party For One" singer reposted fan photos of a billboard teasing something titled "Western Wind" alongside a phone number, which connects callers with a message from Jepsen confirming new music is on the way. "Hello, you've reached the Carly Rae Jepsen hotline," says the 36-year-old musician in a pre-recorded audio clip, which can be heard by calling 213-732-3275. "Text me here to stay in the loop about all kinds of things: new music, tour, secrets that I haven't even come up with yet, nudes… No, wait, there will be no nudes. Sorry, but there will be music for sure." To accompany the teaser and cheeky voicemail message, Jepsen updated her profile photos across social media and posted a new promotional image of herself on Instagram along with the caption, "First bloom…." The California map is quite timely, as the "Run Away with Me" recently performed the new single at the 2022 Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival on April 15. If "The new track will mark Jepsen's first release since 2020's one-off single "Me and the Boys in the Band" and her most recent full-length project, "Dedicated Side B," which dropped the same year. In September 2021, Jepsen celebrated the 10th anniversary of her inescapable, Diamond-certified breakthrough hit, "Call Me Maybe," by recreating the single cover in a new photoshoot. "Call Me Maybe" achieved significant mainstream popularity; the song was the best-selling single of that year, reaching number one in 18 countries. As a result, she was signed to a joint worldwide record deal with School Boy Records and Interscope Records.
