Carly Rae Jepsen's 'Warm Blood' is an infectious electro-pop tune

Posted on

The walkup to Carly Rae Jepsen’s E•MO•TION, has not been short. (Also, it has not been conventional; she dropped the collection in Japan way back in June.) So far, in the U.S. she’s shared four singles—one that even came with a Tom Hanks-filled music video—and they’ve all been good, teetering on the verge of great, pop radio fare. Friday, she tipped the scales favorably with “Warm Blood,” a charming, addicting, synth song that just won’t quit. 

Produced and co-written by Vampire Weekend’s Rostam Batmanglij, it’s a woozy, ’80s-tinged highlight on an album that itself will prove a highlight of 2015.

Jepsen has previously shared “I Really Like You”, “Run Away With Me“, “Your Type”, and the title track. E•MO•TION is due to release Aug. 28 via Schoolboy Records/Interscope. The collection is currently available for pre-order.
