Carly Rae Jepsen is letting fans into the process of making EMOTION with her latest behind-the-scenes video. While we see her breaking down her lyrics, putting her heart into her vocals and working on song structure, we also get a fun tidbit at the end of the vid about the studio's "intimidation" tactics.
In the video, starring Tegan & Sara, Dev Hynes, Ariel Rechtshaid and more songwriting buddies, we hear snippets of Carly's upcoming record (it sounds amazing!). In a bloopers section, though, she gets a little silly, introducing us to a knight statue with a scary sword (around 8:05).
"He's like there to make sure I stay in pitch, and my timing is on, and when it's not, he brings out that sword, and he pokes me with it," Carly deadpans, casually munching on a snack. "It's like basically intimidation that they use at this studio, but it works: Sing well or we'll kill you... slowly."
All joking aside, the video takes us inside CRJ's songwriting sessions and gives fans a glimpse at her studio time, which seems intensely creative, but still fun. Check it!
EMOTION is out August 21, 2015.
