Proof your life is flying by at an uncomfortable rate: We’re three years removed from Carly Rae Jepsen’s ear-worm of a pop music smash, “Call Me Maybe”. Now, it seems the Canadian musician is getting ready to return with a new record and, in a somewhat surprising move, she’s enlisted the help of two prominent figures from the indie music world: Blood Orange’s Dev Hynes and producer Ariel Rechtshaid.
Rechtshaid offers Jepsen a resume that includes credits for HAIM, Vampire Weekend, and Cass McCombs, in addition to pop heavyweights like Madonna and Beyoncé. Hynes, meanwhile, has written music for Florence & the Machine, Sky Ferreira, and Jessie Ware.
Because it’s been far too long, revisit “Call Me Maybe” below.
