Fresh off the success of Emotion, what music lovers called the best pop album of 2015 (although the Grammys didn’t agree), Carly Rae Jepsen isn’t slowing down.
The 30-year-old singer of “Call Me Maybe” fame is writing for her next album, and she’s planning a vintage sound that builds off the ‘80s-era callbacks that made Emotion such a smash.
She even sang the theme song for Fuller House, the sequel to the classic family sitcom.
“I can’t explain what we’re doing right now, but we’re very much into disco-y things, whatever this next album may or may not turn out to be,” Jepsen said in an interview with the Vancouver Sun. “But I’m very much referencing ABBA a lot, and the Bee Gees, all of that stuff.”
That’s some top-tier source material, but Jepsen is confident in her process. “It’s fun to dig into oldies and see what you can celebrate about it, like a good movie or good song—to take your favorite pieces of something and add some new stuff to create something different.”
For now, the singer keeps touring—having the time of her life, we hope.
