Fans have been eager for this moment since the release of 'I Really Like You' in March, and now Carly Rae Jepsen has finally announced details of her forthcoming third album 'Emotion'. If that wasn't exciting enough, she's also got a new single coming even sooner.
'Emotion' is set to drop later this summer
After the success of 2012 album 'Kiss', featuring the sing-a-long epic 'Call Me Maybe', Ms. Jepsen had a range of writers and producers clamouring to work with her for this, her new album, 'Emotion'. Recorded in studios in Los Angeles, New York and Stockholm, the popstar got to share her album writing process with some musical legends such as Sia, Greg Kurstin and Peter Svensson among many others.
With her single 'I Really Like You' set for release on 26th April 2015 and the subsequent music video starring Tom Hanks, Carly Rae Jepsen recorded a live performance of the single while live on The Ellen DeGeneres Show.

If there's one thing Carly Rae Jepsen never expected to be doing, it's watching film legend Tom Hanks mime her lyrics on the set of a music video. But that's exactly what happened with her new tune 'I Really Like You'. It's safe to say, she really likes Tom Hanks.
Carly Rae Jepsen really likes Tom Hanks
If you haven't seen the video already, you're the worst. Just kidding. It features the 'Captain Phillips' star going about his day to day business on a cold day in New York, with the hilariously peculiar twist that he's apparently singing the words to Jepsen's new single 'I Really Like You'; the first from her forthcoming studio album. Yes; we immediately imagined Hanks singing along to 'Call Me Maybe' too. If only. And despite his credentials as an amazing double Oscar-winning Hollywood superstar, he was surprisingly easy to bring on board.
Carly Rae Jepsen has taken a step-by-step look at the music video for her song 'I Really Like You', which featured Tom Hanks in the video. In the commentary she explains how Tom Hanks got involved, and how she had to prompt him with lyrics on the set.
