Carly Rae Jepsen

Multi-platinum Grammy, Juno and Polaris Prize nominated singer/songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen today releases a unique version of fan favorite track “The Sound”, from her recent fourth album, Dedicated, via Schoolboy/Interscope Records.
Recorded and filmed live in Lapland, Finland – with the support of House of Lapland, Finnair and Visit Finland – “The Sound (Live in Lapland, Finland)” sees Carly and her band strip back the song’s more electronic elements and replace them with organic, more tranquil, instrumentation. In what is a rare moment for an artist, both audio and video were recorded fully outdoors – and the accompanying performance video captures the picturesque setting of the record, on a remote lakeside jetty in Lapland’s Ruka-Kuusamo region. 


“The Sound (Live in Lapland, Finland)” is available now at all digital retailers. Watch the performance HERE.


Says Carly of Lapland: “Nature is a part of my childhood and my very best memories. Here in Lapland I’ve been amazed by how the quiet space allows for ideas to float into my head. It has been unlike anything I have ever experienced.”


Having just played more than 40 shows, including multiple sold out shows in New York and Los Angeles, upcoming behind the scenes footage from the Lapland experience shows Carly and her band taking a moment to relax, while partaking in some of Lapland’s more traditional pastimes. Perhaps best known as “the home of Santa Claus”, it also showcases a different side to Lapland, including the striking “midnight sun.”


Carly is currently in the middle of her Asian tour run and next heads to Australia and New Zealand, for her first ever headline shows in those countries.

“Want You In My Room” Video Out Now
Watch the clip HERE


Carly Rae Jepsen’s video for “Want You In My Room” was shot at the Los Angeles County Arboretum and directed by Andrew Donoho (twenty one pilots, Khalid).

The Jack Antonoff produced “Want You In My Room” is featured on Jepsen’s fourth studio album Dedicated which was released in May on Schoolboy/Interscope Records. Jepsen worked with a crew of trusted songwriters and producers, among them Antonoff,  John Hill, Captain Cuts, Patrik Berger, and her longtime collaborator Tavish Crowe, on Dedicated.  Rolling Stone called Dedicated “another installment of Eighties-loving pop that proudly wears its heart on its sleeve” and USA Today said it’s “an album of many pleasures.”  Jepsen recently wrapped a North American headline tour and  will perform this Sunday at the Life Is Beautiful Festival in Las Vegas.

(The La La Land soundtrack, released by Interscope Records in 2016, won a GRAMMY® Award.)
