Is Carly Rae Jepsen headed toward Hipster Icon status? The "Call Me Maybe" star posted an interesting photo late on Sunday night (Jan. 11) alongside Dev Hynes and Ariel Rechtshaid, the duo behind Sky Ferreira's breakout hit "Everything Is Embarrassing" and other indie-pop staples of the 2010s.

"Recorded one of my fav songs today with - @devhynes and @arielrechtshaid," Jepsen posted to Instagram. Individually, Rechtshaid has worked closely with artists like Vampire Weekend, Charli XCX and HAIM, while Hynes has earned raves for his Blood Orange project and produced songs for artists like Solange Knowles.

The Do's and Don'ts of Justin Bieber's Comeback

Working with Hynes and Rechtshaid represents a stylistic shift for Jepsen: her last album, 2012's Kiss, was a bid for mainstream pop dominance led by "Call Me Maybe," which spent nine weeks atop the Hot 100 chart. Justin Bieber and Owl City guested on the album, while Max Martin, Toby Gad and Matthew Koma contributed production.

Will Jepsen's Kissfollow-up beguile the Pitchfork crowd with the help of Hynes and Rechtshaid? There's no timetable for the Canadian singer-songwriter's next album release, but this is no doubt a promising sign.
