Carly Rae Jepsen has shared a new song called "Me And The Boys In The Band." It's her first new song since this year's Dedicated Side B.
Earlier in quarantine, Carly Rae Jepsen released a follow-up to last year's excellent Dedicated and claimed to have enough new material for a whole new album that had been made during lockdown. This week, CRJ returned with "Me And The Boys In The Band" a bubbly pop number that's wonderfully breezy and fun. It's not a banger, but still a splendid track that hits just right on a warm summer afternoon. In a statement on the track, Jepsen said: "On the road. That was the life. I miss travel and performing and my band mates who over the years have become my adopted brothers. Through romantic relationships good and bad I have always found myself again in the late-night conversations with my band. Here’s to all the shows we have played and have yet to play. The late-night dancers we turn into on the long bus drives and the tourists we become in the early mornings. Here’s to nostalgia city and keeping close the ones that know you best. Can’t wait for more. Till then a from home ‘pick me up’ song from all of us to you. Me and the boys and the band!"
