We're calling it now - single of 2015.
Carly Rae Jepsen has just shared her new single "Run Away With Me" and it is PERFECT.
Taken from the singer's sophomore album E•MO•TION, the song serves as the second official single following the catchy-as-hell track "I Really Like You".
We've heard Jepsen's latest album (due to some weird release dates in Japan), and we have to say it's totally vying for album-of-the-year. It's pure pop perfection.
Co-produced by Shellback, the man who helped produced Taylor's "Shake It Off" and "Blank Space", "Run Away With Me" is an 80s delight that opens with massive saxophones before launching into some wonderful yearning synths. However, what makes the song is that chorus, full of soaring melodies as that saxophone, which goes off in the background.
Basically, this song is f*cking amazing.
The accompanying music video sees Jepsen roaming around the world and generally having a fun time - tbh, it's made us kinda jealous.
Watch the video for "Run Away With Me" below and revel in what is a total musical majesty.
Carly Rae Jepsen releases E•MO•TION in the US on 21 August and in the UK on 25 September.
