Carly Rae Jepsen Releases "All That," Produced By Dev Hynes & Ariel Rechtshaid

Carly Rae Jepsen continues to release some of the most exciting pop of 2015, this time with brand new single "All That." The track follows "I Really Like You," a woefully overlooked (by US radio) jam that arrived on March 1.

Jepsen performed both songs on Saturday Night Live last night — something that, if there's any justice in the world, should hopefully propel at least one or the other into being a hit.

The singer worked with producers Dev Hynes and Ariel Rechtshaid on Prince-like ballad "All That." I interviewed her in early March for Idolator, and she had this to say:
Dev was through Solange. I was really into her, and while being in New York for Cinderella and having time during the day, I would be on the Internet and my guitarist would come into town, and we’d be like, “Well, who did the production on that? Who co-wrote that with her?” Then I got into the Blood Orange Cupid Deluxe album, and I was like, okay, I need to meet this guy. So I ended up meeting him in New York, and we started a few things together. One of the tracks, it kind of had that Prince-y element to it and we loved it, but Ariel got involved with it recently to add his spin to it too. It’s a pretty big slow jam, so we brought the tempo up a little bit. Sorry, this is probably getting too detailed.

And with Ariel, on the separate train of things, I was a big fan of the Sky [Ferreira] stuff. [Starts singing “You’re Not The One.”] I was obsessed with that. We had a couple coffee dates, just talking in between all the stuff that he’s got going with Brandon Flowers, and we were like, “How are we sneaking in a day to get this done?” We just made it come together. I remember when I got both [Dev and Ariel] in the room together to work on this track, it was probably one of the most magical days ever. It’s nice to really be in a moment like that and feel like, okay, this is why I’m in this business.
Now that's a good interview.
