Carly Rae Jepsen — the Canadian pop singer who rose to fame with her viral song sensation “Call Me Maybe” in 2012 — will perform at Barton Hall on Nov. 1, according to the Cornell Concert Commission.
Known for her catchy and infectious pop songs, Jepsen released her third album Emotion, which Rolling Stone described as “a compelling, vaguely retro, synth-bathed record,” in North America in August.
“Cornell Concert Commission is thrilled to bring Carly Rae Jepsen to Barton Hall,” said Ryan Enderby ’16, executive director of the Cornell Concert Commission.
“Far from a one-hit-wonder, Jepsen recently released her third album, Emotion,” Enderby said. “The album garnered considerable critical praise and produced ‘I Really Like You,’ a single almost as popular as the ubiquitous ‘Call Me Maybe.’”
While concert-goers will be sure to hear Jepsen’s energetic pop tunes, they will also hear her perform songs from Emotion, which express a more intimate side of Jepsen, according to a Cornell Concert Commission press release.
In addition to Jepsen, the concert will feature “a special guest” that will be announced at a later time, according to the release.
Tickets will be available on the Cornell Concerts website starting at 9 a.m. on Thursday for students and on Friday for the general public.
