Carly Rae Jepsen has cemented herself as a powerhouse in the LGBTQ community since her 2015 album E•MO•TION changed the face of our nation forevermore. She's since released E•MO•TION: Side B and "Cut To The Feeling," which hasn't left our heads since it entered in May. Now, Jepsen has finally given us a little more to work with about her next studio LP, speaking to Elite Daily about what we can expect:
She's written tons of songs that she's now sifting through.
"I have so many different songs, I don't know how to talk totally about the album yet," she said. "I haven't sort of picked what songs are making the album, I definitely have my favorites."
She also shared this Tweet, revealing she's written around 50 songs.

She's working with Robyn collaborator Patrik Berger.
"It was a pleasure to get to work with him and I think some of our stuff has been my favorites," she said.
This is big, big news, you guys. Berger isn't just any collaborator - he helped created the most important anthem of all time, "Dancing On My Own."
She's been listening to different stuff than what she typically writes.
"I'm kind of into more somber stuff," she said. "I've kind of had a little darker taste for moodier music that I listen to. Probably to offset stuff I write since it's more joyful, happier things."
John Mayer has sent her congratulatory gift baskets.
"He's just been really surprising in terms of being supportive," she said. "I think, from the beginning, when we first came out with songs, he sent a nice care package of some things that were sweet to say like, ‘Hey! You're doing some good writing.' I was like, ‘Oh my God, this is the man who wrote “Slow Dancing In A Burning Room.” I'm blown away.'"
He also tweeted this:
I will come to your party, play "Cut to the Feeling" exactly twice, establish a connection with your pets and then
