Famous Canadian pop songstress Carly Rae Jepsen announced the release of ‘The Loveliest Time’ earlier this month, as a follow up to her previous work, ‘The Loneliest Time’. Today, the long awaited album has finally hit streaming platforms for audiences to listen to & enjoy. Preceded by the single ‘Shy Boy’, the album has already been received incredibly psotifely in its short time of release, with fans and critics describing it as some of Jepsen’s bedt and most passionate work yet.
Jepsen has been big on pop music since she was young, performing in musical theatre in secondary school, among other things. Her career began shortly after graduating from the Canadian College of Performing Arts in 2005, where she started writing her own songs. In 2007, Jepsen auditioned for Canadian Idol, where her performance gained her national attention, and got her a deal with 604 Records, the label where she released her debut album, ‘Tug Of War’, in June 2008. Now a fifteen-year veteran of the music industry, Jepsen has seen her fair share of highs and lows throughout her career, which she discusses on both ‘The Loneliest Time’, and her newest work, ‘The Loveliest Time’.
The first impression of the album we got from ‘Shy Boy’ was that the album would be more upbeat than ‘The Loneliest Time’ – a theme that shows itself through the thirteen-track LP. ‘The Loveliest Time’ makes you want to dance more than anything else, which can be attributed to producers Rostam Batmanglij and James Ford working on the album, giving it more of an energetic feel compared to ‘The Loneliest Time’. This is some of Jepsen’s best work of her career, and definitely worth a listen through the links below.
