Pop star Carly Rae Jepsen made her huge return to music with the debut of “Party For One” Thursday (Nov. 1). The single comes ahead of her forthcoming 2019 album, which will be her first full-length release since 2015’s Emotion.
“To me, ‘Party For One’ is an anthem of what it is to celebrate time with yourself, which is a hard thing for people to really enjoy sometimes, and it's something I’m learning to do more and more,” the singer said in a statement. “This song represents a lot of what this album is about for me, which is romantic love, but self-love, too.”
The new single, driven by an electric beat, features an infectious pop sound similar to the singer’s popular “Call Me Maybe” and “I Really Like You.” “Party for one,” chimes Jepsen’s breathy voice during the chorus. “If you don't care about me/ I’ll just dance for myself/ Back on my beat.”
