Listen to “Psychedelic Switch” by Carly Rae Jepsen

Just nine months after Carly Rae Jepsen empathized with love’s cynics on The Loneliest Time, it now appears the criminally underrated pop diva is dead set on making believers out of them with a new album, The Loveliest Time. Not only is it the B-side of The Loneliest Time, but the B-side of a breakup, or—more generally—life’s many bummers. Heartbreak? We don’t knew her. Rejection? I’ve simply never experienced it. Thanks to Jepsen’s latest, we’re now in our experimental era and it feels—and sounds—pretty fucking fun.

A clear standout is Psychedelic Switch, in which Jepsen sings of a psychological (and physiological?) trip she’s taken on by a new lover. It’s one of those songs that leaves you no choice but to dance until you’re really, really sweaty—though that wouldn’t take too long in this heat wave. —Audra Heinrichs
