Carly Rae Jepsen Sings of Unrequited Love on ‘Your Type’
Carly Rae Jepsen continues to shower us with E.MO.TION tracks, despite the fact that the album drops on August 21.
"Your Type" is the seventh song we've heard from her sophomore effort, and one critic calls it a "synth-heavy offering that nods to Tiffany-style 1980s pop" (that critic was me, when it leaked back in June). As the broken-heart image accompanying the post suggests, it's about having a massive crush on someone while they're pursuing someone else.
"And I want you to miss me, when I'm not around you / I know that you're in town, won't you come around / To the spot that we met?" It's a friend-zone anthem, and rejection has never sounded so catchy.
We asked Carly what she'll do when E.MO.TION finally sees a worldwide release. "I’ve thought about this," she told PopCrush. "I’m going to hold that CD in my hand and then step on it. It’ll be so therapeutic. In honesty, it’s been the biggest project of my life. I’m very proud of it, but it’s a lot of blood, sweat and tears — even the songs that didn’t make it into this project. I don’t know if I’m going to cry or kiss it…or throw it out the window."
You can pre-order E.MO.TION on iTunes now.
