Carly Rae Jespen's new album EMOTION is still three weeks away, but today (July 31), fans have gotten a taste of the record with her sizzling new single "Warm Blood."
Falling in line with the Dev Hynes produced track "All That," "Warm Blood" features a cool, '80s vibe, whispered and sweet vocals from Jepsen and a sense of urgency and sensuality that is at once refreshing, accessible and totally modern.
Jepsen's high pitched vocals play well against the warbling, soft instrumentation making this song reach unprecedented levels of sexiness. As she sings about her newfound love with lyrics such as "Warm blood feels good, I can't control it anymore / Sweet one, you should stop me there but I keep on talking / I would throw in the towel for you, boy / Cause you lift me up and catch me when I'm falling for you," it's hard not to lose control alongside her.
Jepsen may not have an earworm like "Call Me Maybe" in her new arsenal, but she's low key rolling out the best pop music of the year with each EMOTION cut better than the last.
"Warm Blood" is the latest taste of Jepsen's third studio album EMOTION, which is due for release on Aug. 21. She previously has rolled out the tracks "I Really Like You," "All That," "Emotion" and "Run Away With Me." EMOTION will act as the follow-up to Jepsen's 2012 album Kiss, which featured the insanely catchy smash of the summer "Call Me Maybe."
