Carly Rae Jepsen Releases 'Leap' Track 'Cut To The Feeling': Listen

Carly Rae Jepsen kicks the summer off with the release of her song “Cut To The Feeling” on Friday (May 26). The track was written during sessions for Jepsen’s last album, Emotion, but will now be featured on the motion picture soundtrack for the upcoming film Leap! coming to theaters August 30.  

The theatrical poppy ballad intertwines Jepsen’s signature '80s sound with exciting trills, breathy harmonies and a catchy hook. "I wanna cut through the clouds, break the ceiling/ I wanna dance on the roof, you and me alone/ I wanna cut to the feeling, oh yeah,” Jepsen sings on the chorus. 

Leap! follows two friends on an adventure traveling to Paris in hopes of following their dreams. The cast includes Elle Fanning, Nat Wolff, Maddie Ziegler, Mel Brooks and Katie McKinnon. Jepsen voices the prima ballerina named Odette. Jepsen will be featured on the film's soundtrack twice, with her latest track as well as another song called "Runaways" that has yet to be released.
