Carly Rae Jepsen announces ‘The Loneliest Time’

Album is due Oct 21st

Carly Rae Jepsen announces the forthcoming release of her massively anticipated new album, The Loneliest Time, due October 21st via 604/Schoolboy/Interscope Records.

Her most introspective body of work to date, the album expands on the emotionally potent songwriting and effervescent sound that Jepsen has showcased on past work like 2015’s critically lauded and culture-shaping E*MO*TION. In bringing her new album to life, Jepsen worked with collaborators Tavish Crowe, Rostam Batmanglij — who helmed production on The Loneliest Time’s acclaimed lead single “Western Wind” — Bullion, Captain Cuts, John Hill, Kyle Shearer, and Alex Hope among others.

Jepsen will give fans a taste of the new album when she hits the road next month on her The So Nice Tour. The 23-date headline tour kicks off on September 24th in Montreal and includes stops at marquee venues like Radio City Music Hall in New York City and The Greek Theatre in Los Angeles. Her first North American headline tour since 2019, The So Nice Tour will include support from Empress Of. Jepsen has partnered with PLUS1 so that $1 from every ticket sold will go to The Ally Coalition’s work to support homeless and at-risk LGBTQ youth.

In addition to The So Nice Tour, Jepsen’s upcoming live dates include two co-headline shows with Bleachers on September 21st in Cleveland and September 22nd in Toronto, as well as an appearance at Austin City Limits Festival on October 7th.
