If there is a time when the world as a whole can use the flow of pure joy that accompanies the new Carly Rae Jepsen album, now. Luckily, the Canadian pop queen in power delivered, let go Special Side B, partner for the 2019s Dedicated, this morning via Spotify and Apple Music.

Jepsen sent his fans into a frenzy of speculation with the video posted to Instagram and Twitter on Sunday, celebrating a birthday Dedicated. The clip closes with a glance only the letter “B,” which was taken by fans as a hint that – just as he followed 2015 EMOTION with E • MO • TION Side B in 2016 – the artist has new music to share. He more or less confirmed the theories with another video Wednesday night.

Like the previous “B-sides” collection, this album feels like more than a censored compilation of its latest release. Special Side B can be easily functioned as a stand-alone recording, with lots of lively and loving choirs to hold in your head all summer long. Early prominence on the front included “It’s What They Said,” “Stay Away” and “This Love Is Not Crazy”).

There are also some other relaxing songs, such as “Heartbeat,” “I Don’t Hate California After All” and “Comeback,” which include rare guest features: BleachThe ubiquitous project producer and songwriter Jack Antonoff joins the track on backing vocals.

Receiving a new collection of Jepsen’s songs while in quarantine is both a blessing and a curse. On the one hand, it can be frustrating to hear him always perfect pop dancing on summer evenings that tend to be short at dance parties. On the other hand, no one makes music for dancing like no one is watching or sing together in the bathroom like Carly Rae Jepsen.
