Carly Rae Jepsen releases whimsical ‘The Loneliest Time’ video

New clip features Rufus Wainwright

Last week, Carly Rae Jepsen released the sparkling, disco inspired title track to her upcoming album The Loneliest Time. The last single to be released from the project sees her playing out a fantastical duet with her musical hero Rufus Wainwright.

The glamorous and whimsical video for “The Loneliest Time” was directed by Grammy Award winning director Brantley Gutierrez and features Jepsen and Wainwright calling out to one another during the loneliest time of the night.

Produced by Kyle Shearer, who worked with Jepsen before most notably on the song “Julien,” and co-written by Jepsen, Shearer and Nate Cyphert, “The Loneliest Time” follows the release of “Talking To Yourself, “Beach House” and “Western Wind.” All four songs will be featured on Jepsen’s fifth studio album, set for release October 21st on 604/Schoolboy/Interscope Records.

Jepsen is currently out on the road headlining her North American The So Nice Tour where she is giving fans a taste of her new tunes.
