    With Valentine’s Day right around the corner, many lovers are surely working on a romantic playlist for their boos. (We certainly are; you may want to keep your eyes on Consequence of Sound Radio on TuneIn next week.) For the rest of us out here without a sweetheart, however, Carly Rae Jepsen has shared a new single called “Let’s Be Friends”.

    A snapping, biting pop tune, “Let’s Be Friends” doesn’t really believe its own title. It’s just that line we always say when we end a relationship in an attempt to soften the blow. “It’s a black dress occasion/ Nobody’s dying, it’s a dinner not a date,” sings CRJ. “But I feel young and inspired/ That this is over and I’m hoping you’ll agree.” Ah, love.

    Take a listen to “Let’s Be Friend” via the paper puppet-filled lyric video below.

    Marking her first track since last year’s Dedicated, the song comes as Carly Rae Jepsen launches her latest UK and EU tour. She’s also revealed a three-date West Coast spring trek with stops in Oakland, Seattle, and Portland.


    The shows are sandwiched between her upcoming appearances at Coachella, and she’s scheduled for Governors Ball, as well. Tickets to the new dates go on sale — naturally — on Valentine’s Day, February 14th at 10:00 a.m. local time. Find CRJ’s full schedule below, and get tickets to all her upcoming shows here.
