Carly Rae Jepsen has revealed that she wrote 200 songs for her new album 'Dedicated'
Carly Rae Jepsen wrote 200 songs for her new album.
The 33-year-old star is a self-confessed workaholic and admitted she struggled to whittle down the 200 songs she wrote for her fourth record 'Dedicated', which is set for release on May 17.
She said: "I rarely write a song and am like, 'It's done!' It's sort of my passion and obsession in a way: late at night being like, 'I found the lyric!' I envy writers that are like, 'I just wrote this and put it on the album.' I'm like, 'How do you sleep at night?!' "
And Carly revealed her album is inspired by love, both her break-up with her ex, photographer David Kalani Larkins, and her relationship with her current musician boyfriend.
She told Rolling Stone: "When you get to the place where you know somebody, and they've seen your absolute embarrassing worst and love you still, there's a rush and a high. I try to create that with the music that I make: a feeling of a moment being so intense that you're present in it and you're nowhere else."
Carly found fame with the catchy track 'Call Me Maybe' but it was her follow-up album that resonated with fans and Carly isn't interested in huge, worldwide fame but instead she wants to make an emotional connection with her fans through her music.
She said: "Here's how I'll put it. I would much rather have a small and mighty group of people who are getting what I love about music and connecting than a 'Call Me Maybe' ever again."
