Carly Rae Jepsen announces new album 'The Loneliest Time'

By Carissa Alcantara

Known for her songs, "Call Me Maybe", "This Kiss", and "I Like You" the 36-year-old pop star has revealed that her new album "The Loneliest Time" will be available on streaming services starting Oct. 21. 

Carly shared the good news on Instagram. "I'm quite fascinated by loneliness. It can really be beautiful when you turn it over and look at it. Just like love, it can cause some extreme human interaction." 

The Instagram photo showed her sitting at a table covered with painted fruits, flowers, and pearls — an image reminiscent of Baroque era portraits.

"The Loneliest Time" will be Carly's most introspective body of work to date. 

It follows the singer-songwriter’s companion albums Dedicated and Dedicated Side B, released in 2019 and 2022 respectively, as well as her critically-acclaimed 2015 record E*MO*TION.

Back in May, Carly released a song entitled "Western Winds" which is also part of her upcoming album.
