    After what’s felt like a lifetime of anticipation, Carly Rae Jepsen has finally announced her long awaited new album. Entitled Dedicated, the follow-up to her 2015 smash E•MO•TION is set for a May 17th release via School Boy/Interscope Records.

    The Canadian pop star heralded her return last fall when she dropped on of 2018’s best tracks, “Party for One”. According to an iTunes pre-order listing for the new LP, however, it seems the single won’t appear on Dedicated. Although the self-love anthem won’t be one of the record’s 15 tracks, newer cuts “Now That I Found You” and “No Drug Like Me” are both featured.

    To support the effort, Jepsen has also revealed dates for a full US tour. Fittingly dubbed “The Dedicated Tour”, the 30-date trek opens June 27th at Anaheim, California’s House of Blues. Reno, Denver, Nashville, Chicago, Detroit, New York, Raleigh, Miami Beach, and Austin are also on the docket before everything closes back in Cali with an August 10th gig at Los Angeles’ The Wiltern.


    Those who pre-order Dedicated will receive an early access code to an April 2nd presale for tickets. General on sale launches on April 5th, with a $1 from every ticket sold going to the Crisis Text Line thanks to a partnership with PLUS1. The San Francisco date will see donations go to the LGBTQ youth crisis intervention and suicide prevention services group The Trevor Project.
