Carly Rae Jepsen sat down with Pitchfork in a new video series called “The Song I Wish I Wrote” and talks about Sinéad O’Connor’s “Nothing Compares 2 U” written by Prince.
Carly Rae Jepsen talked with Idolator:
It is like picking a favorite child! I definitely had my favorite songs and it felt like betrayal to kill some of my babies and my darlings, but it was necessary. I don’t have a team that is stickler for dates, saying things like, “We need an album this year.” I used to have a few people like that around me, but I’ve learned to build myself a team with creatives that know me. They are business savvy enough to tell me that 200 is enough and we have to start narrowing it down.
Even my A&R came to the house in the narrowing down process and he kind of got to a point where he was like, “All right! I’ve done it, I’ve picked my top 22.” I was like, “That’s still not helpful.” In the end, I realized that this is the beginning of an era and I can store some songs away for projects to come. I’m equally excited for what I hope will be a Side B or Part 2 of the album, because there are songs that were just important as these ones.

Carly Rae Jepsen talked with NPR about her upcoming album:
Our first single, “Now That I Found You,” was very much that euphoric, kind of top-of-the-mountain feeling. “Feels Right,” as well, has a very summery vibe to it. Maybe “Automatically in Love,” as well, which has a very ’90s feel to it; I was driving with Mariah Carey in my head around the time that we worked on that song. And then on the other side of the spectrum, I think the more intimate ones would be “The Sound” and “Right Words Wrong Time.”
