Carly Rae Jepsen has captured America’s collective eardrums with her inescapable hit “Call Me Maybe,” teasing just what pop lovers might hear on her in-the-works full-length debut, set for release in September.
In addition to her duet with Owl City on “Good Time” and an already-teased collaboration with her boss, Justin Bieber , the singer has shared that she is also working with LMFAO party rocker Redfoo on the fall release.
“I ran into Redfoo from LMFAO at the airport,” she told Billboard magazine, via Ace Showbiz, about the collaboration, explaining that they’ve been writing together over the phone. So he called her, no maybes about it. “And we’ve been writing a song together today. Over the phone.
“What I really love about music is that despite all this craziness, the creative process remains the same,” she continued. “And that same exciting feeling I had before anybody knew me, when I was just beginning to work on ‘Call Me Maybe,’ is the same feeling I had today with Redfoo from LMFAO.”
Later this year, in addition to dropping her album, she’ll also be hitting the road with Bieber on his massive Believe tour , kicking off in September.
“It’s not that I didn’t have my dream show built in my head before all of this — it’s just that I never had the resources together to actually put it to life,” she said. “I feel very giddy with the idea of making my imagination take form and being able to put on a show where people leave feeling like they’ve experienced something.”
