Carly Rae Jepsen Releases New Album “Dedicated”: Streaming
- Canadian singer-songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen released her fourth studio album “Dedicated” on May 17, 2019. It is her first LP in four years.
On the same day, she dropped a new music video for “Too Much” from the album, directed by Matty Peacock and Amy David.
Also, she appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden to perform “Too Much”.
The album comprises of 15-track, but she had written "nearly 200 songs" for the album
She told idolator about that in an interview, “It is like picking a favorite child! I definitely had my favorite songs and it felt like betrayal to kill some of my babies and my darlings, but it was necessary. I don’t have a team that is stickler for dates, saying things like, 'We need an album this year.' I used to have a few people like that around me, but I’ve learned to build myself a team with creatives that know me. They are business savvy enough to tell me that 200 is enough and we have to start narrowing it down.”
She continued, “Even my A&R came to the house in the narrowing down process and he kind of got to a point where he was like, 'All right! I’ve done it, I’ve picked my top 22.' I was like, 'That’s still not helpful.' In the end, I realized that this is the beginning of an era and I can store some songs away for projects to come. I’m equally excited for what I hope will be a Side B or Part 2 of the album, because there are songs that were just important as these ones.”
