Carly Rae Jepsen Reveals ‘Kiss’ as Album Title
Time to pucker up. Carly Rae Jepsen has a smooch for you. The ‘Call Me Maybe’ singer has revealed that ‘Kiss’ is the title of her much awaited U.S. debut album.
The singer has been sitting pretty atop the pop song charts with her aforementioned smash hit about swapping digits. Now, her album is ready to drop on Sept. 18, so get your smacker ready for a ‘Kiss’ from CRJ.
Jepsen actually wrote or co-wrote many songs on the album, collaborating with the likes of LMFAO‘s Redfoo during the process. Even though ‘Call Me Maybe’ is still going strong as the feel good hit of the summer (having recently tied Gotye for most weeks at No. 1 in 2012), Jepsen’s follow up, ‘Good Time,’ with Owl City is already at No. 3 on the Pop chart and No. 5 on the iTunes singles chart. It’s also No. 13 on Billboard’s Hot 100.
Summer 2012 is the summer of Carly Rae, it seems!
“These are lyric and song ideas that I have been collecting over the years,” Jepsen said of ‘Kiss’ in a press release.
She continued, “I can’t tell you how lucky I feel to be able to collaborate with some of my dream producers. It has been the most fulfilling experience. The record is pop. It’s inspired by Robyn, The Cars, Madonna, and believe it or not, James Taylor. I can’t wait to share it with everyone! Kiss.”
We can’t wait to hear more and get more mwahs from CRJ!
The singer is set to perform on ‘America’s Got Talent’ on Aug. 22 and on the TODAY show on Aug. 23. She also earned a 2012 MTV VMA nomination for Best New Artist.
