In the four years between Carly Rae Jepsen's last album Emotion and her upcoming Dedicated she wrote 200 songs.
She also went through a tremendously painful breakup and kindled a new romance, which both fueled that creative output.
And Carly Rae admits her addiction to love also plays a major part in her song making.
“When you get to the place where you know somebody, and they’ve seen your absolute embarrassing worst and love you still, there’s a rush and a high,” she explains to Rolling Stone. “I try to create that with the music that I make: a feeling of a moment being so intense that you’re present in it and you’re nowhere else.”
Dedicated arrives May 17th.
