Last week, on social media, Carly Rae Jepsen teased a companion to 2022’s The Loneliest Time. She’s now revealed that the new album, The Loveliest Time, is out July 28. “I got to know loneliness and discover the beauty in it,” the pop singer wrote online. “The loneliest time taught me that growth comes from being planted in darkness. But now the world has opened itself back up again and in turn so have we. It’s time for celebration and for all the lessons we have learned to burst into joyful action.”
The Loveliest Time, according to a press release, will feature 12 songs, including the new single “Shy Boy.” Jepsen worked on her new album with James Ford, John Hill, Patrik Berger, Rostam Batmanglij, Kyle Shearer, and more.
The Loneliest Time is the third straight Carly Rae Jepsen album to get the companion treatment. She started the trend by releasing E•mo•tion: Side B after the landmark 2015 album E•mo•tion. A few years later, Jepsen issued Dedicated and Dedicated Side B.
