“Tusk” by Miss Aniela

I know when you’re down / I know what you need to get you high
This one is so playful. I love the mix of old and new and that curious eye!

Making the most of the night
I just. like. love this one. It’s so rad and the M stands out to me almost like a single cover, painted like graffiti on a beauty marked face!

“Starlette” by Loui Jover

Your eyes wide / Like you’ve never seen the ocean, never seen the sky / No hope / Now you’re seeing things that you’ve lost sight of
I love the details of this one. Bird on the eyebrow and star on the cheek. Stunning.

About E·MO·TION

The result of years of experimentation and creative soul-searching, E·MO·TION finds Jepsen conjuring pop’s most thrilling paradoxes, delivering songs that gracefully capture both the joy and risk in following your heart.

Featuring collaborations with songwriters including Sia, Devonté Hynes (aka Blood Orange), and Ariel Rechtshaid (Haim, Madonna, Vampire Weekend) and producers such as Mattman & Robin (Tove Lo, Taylor Swift), Greg Kurstin (Charli XCX, Katy Perry), and Carl Falk and Rami Yacoub (Ariana Grande, One Direction), E·MO·TION brings new depth and dimension to Jepsen’s undeniably hooky but heart-driven breed of pop music.
