Fourth Studio Album On Vinyl LP!
After dropping critically-acclaimed singles Now That I Found You and No Drug Like Me, multi-platinum Grammy, Juno, and Polaris Prize-nominated singer/songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen releases her next full-length album, Dedicated, via School Boy / Interscope Records. Dedicated follows E*MO*TION (heralded by multiple press outlets as the top pop album of 2015), and has been highlighted among the most anticipated albums of the year by Pitchfork, Billboard, Spin, and more.
"Carly Rae Jepsen ties up bright, ribbony pop songs with the magnetism of a person whos a little too modest to be a pop star. She goes for the big feelings, and as a result, inspires near-rapturous devotion. Jepsens most ardent fans feel called to defend her, to arm her with a sword, to catalyze the moment that will reveal her magic beyond doubt. Dedicated, Jepsens fourth full-length album, returns to her signature combination of self-aware innocence and mature restraint...
"Everything in Jepsens world always comes back to love, and in the past, the feeling was usually unrequited. Thats changed now; on Dedicated, love is more assured of itself, and for the first time, distinctly sexy. Rarely has her singing sounded so breathy and astonished. No Drug Like Me describes the intoxication of new love as a dry-mouthed truth serum; The Sound can play like a plea for spoken commitment, or something altogether more carnal... Want You in My Room, a scene-stealing Jack Antonoff production, wields its pitch-shifted hook like a conspiratorial voice disguise. Im like a lighthouse/Im a reminder of where youre goin, Jepsen sings, the kind of clever line thats often missing here." - pitchfork.com
"Four albums in, the notion of Jepsen coming out with a 'mature' album would be anathema to all that is Carly Rae. And she seems more than happy holding the mantle of cheerful, mid-tempo pop-rock for her generation a great American tradition passed down from the Monkees to Wilson Phillips to Hanson. The downside is that when your fans expect you to bring the hooks, you better bring them. Jepsen doesn't appear constrained by those expectations, maybe because pop's two main ingredients melody and melodrama come to her naturally. But with all its polish and production, Dedicated can sound less like an artistic benchmark and more likethrowing gum drops at the ceiling to see which ones stick." - Rolling Stone, The 50 Best Albums of 2019 So Far, June 2019
"Carly Rae Jepsen once looked like a prototypical one-hit wonder, with an inescapable breakthrough track ('Call Me Maybe') that exuded frothy novelty. Seven years later, she's putting out albums like Dedicated, a 15-song dynamo that seems to roll about a dozen hits deep. Every song here works, whether it's about lost love ('Julien'), found love ('Now That I Found You') or self-love ('Party for One')." - NPR, Best Albums Of 2019 (So Far)
