Carly Rae Jepsen thinks her latest track 'Julien' is the "heart" of her new album.
The 33-year-old singer is set to release 'Dedicated' – her fourth studio record – next month, and she has revealed her brand new single helped her figured out what "direction" the entire LP would take.
Unveiling the song this week, she tweeted: "'Julien' is the song that taught me the heart and direction of this album. Couldn't keep him for myself any longer."
The deep track sees Carly singing about being obsessed with a lover as "the last breath that I breathe".
She sings: "I tried another, to keep me satisfied. But all you colours are still dancing in my mind."
'Julien' is the third single to be released from the upcoming album – which is set to drop on May 17 – following 'Now That I Found You' and 'No Drug Like Me'.
Carly confirmed her fourth LP – her first since 2015's 'Emotion' – earlier this month, and the 'I Really Like You' hitmaker previously revealed she has gone down a different route for the new collection.
She said: "I normally write in a bunch of different directions at once. Now, the thing that I noticed, generally with a lot of artists, is that we try to put out the most obvious choices.
"I am trying really hard not to do [that] and instead offer something fresh and different from what I did before. It is all about showing some kind of growth with each project."
