Was "Party for One" not a hit?? I mean certainly not on the level of anything from E-MO-TION but I've been hearing it out and about quite a bit.

there's still an outside chance it'll be one of the "TRACK 1"s and/or (more likely) a bonus track

Party For (Track) One

a large tuna called “Justice” (C. Grisso/McCain), Tuesday, 2 April 2019 21:32 (five months ago) link

I thought it was pretty popular too, but I just looked at the peak chart positions thing on Wikipedia and... yknow, one of those moments you realize ILX is not the world

maffew12, Tuesday, 2 April 2019 22:32 (five months ago) link

Even "I Really Like You" only got to #39 on the Hot 100 in the States. They even got Tom Hanks in the video, like. What more do you people need?! Ug. Goodnight

maffew12, Tuesday, 2 April 2019 22:41 (five months ago) link

"party for one" wasn't even especially popular on ILX. it placed at #92 in last year's track poll

monotony, Tuesday, 2 April 2019 23:00 (five months ago) link

great song though deserved better

jolene club remix (BradNelson), Tuesday, 2 April 2019 23:14 (five months ago) link

I like Party For One a good amount but it's my least favourite of the three recent singles.

kitchen person, Wednesday, 3 April 2019 02:18 (five months ago) link

ILX pre-cover?

Perhaps...but we need songtitles in full first.

Ned Raggett, Wednesday, 3 April 2019 04:19 (five months ago) link

I Really Like You got to #3 in the UK but Run Away With Me didn't even make the Top 40 and that was her last "hit" over here.

groovypanda, Wednesday, 3 April 2019 08:27 (five months ago) link

Bought a presale of the album to get a code to get presale tickets for the London gig. It seemed to sell out in under a minute, so no tickets for me yet.

Chewshabadoo, Wednesday, 3 April 2019 09:26 (five months ago) link

Im not surenif it works the same in UK, but dometimes in the U.S. with Ticketmaster, if you keep trying you can still score. I think the deal is people will have them in their carts but then not buy them? I tried to buy tickets for something last year and when I logged on at 10 a.m., it said "no tickets available." I kept trying and gave up, but went back half an hour later out of sheer frustration and managed to get some. Dont want to fill you with too much hope but maybe keep trying for a minute.

Turns out I got a code that can only be used for US dates, and I could have got a free code for the London/Paris gigs if I had been paying attention: https://zaphod.uk.vvhp.net/vvreg/14293-637481.html

God, the process of buying tickets sucks so much these days.

Johnny Fever, Friday, 5 April 2019 15:00 (five months ago) link

Yep, a very disappointing morning for everyone I knew trying to get tickets.

Chewshabadoo, Friday, 5 April 2019 15:05 (five months ago) link

I didn't get any either :( it was gonna fall on the gf's birthday, so now she is pissed at me. Fuck ticket master.

Yeah, I think you're right. (I did first read it as 'Cover reveal one month away' tho)

Reminds me of Robyn doing the whole I'm pretending to make out with someone gag in Dancing On My Own.

Also, I realize everybody is probably ogling her back, but take a second and gaze upon those fringes! We're going to get some 70s in this album for sure.

☮ (peace, man), Thursday, 18 April 2019 11:53 (four months ago) link

you can hear a preview of "Julien" here, which also confirms the album cover: https://itunes.apple.com/nz/album/dedicated/1459935069

sounds really nice, in the vein of the smoother tracks from Emotion like the title track and "Let's Get Lost"

ufo, Thursday, 18 April 2019 13:59 (four months ago) link

oh jeez i'm gonna love this song

american bradass (BradNelson), Thursday, 18 April 2019 14:09 (four months ago) link

if it lives up to that preview i expect it'll be my favourite so far

"julien" is indeed really nice. at this point i'm not really expecting this album to be the revelation that Emotion was but if she can keep releasing songs this nice it'll still be a worthy follow up

ufo, Friday, 19 April 2019 02:00 (four months ago) link

It's a nice enough song, I guess, but isn't it a bit of an odd choice for an album opener?

Me 4 minutes ago: Listen here, fraggle, history is filled with strange album openers! Tears of Rage from Music from Big Pink, Over & Over from Tusk, etc.

Me now: It's a nice enough song, I guess, but isn't it a bit of an odd choice for an album opener?

Or they just happened to choose metacritic to focus on. Don't "Swifties" buy multiple copies of Taylor Swift albums? Step it up, Jepset!

maffew12, Monday, 27 May 2019 16:28 (three months ago) link

I checked BTS (who have a notoriously zealous stanbase), and even their user scores aren’t as high. My theory is that CRJ has lots of vocal fans and no enemy fan armies showing up for negative votes.

Like who would bother downvoting a Carly Rae Jepsen album? She seems to be either loved or ignored

maffew12, Monday, 27 May 2019 16:33 (three months ago) link

Would actually be interested to hear your take on it if you listen back to front?

Hah, that's an idea. One of the only albums I can think of where the songs go from least favorite to favorite is the Smiths' The Queen is Dead (big exception: "Vicar in a Tutu"). I think the impact of that ordering is I have more attention for the tracks I'm not as crazy about

Chewshabadoo, Wednesday, 29 May 2019 08:59 (three months ago) link

Everything He Needs is my song of the summer. Not sure if it's intentional but it feels like a sunshiny flipside to Wham!'s Everything She Wants. I agree with whoever it was who said Dedicated doesn't quite hit the highs of Emotion but is much more solid overall. What a great album.

josh winters (josh), Saturday, 29 June 2019 07:36 (two months ago) link

Yeah that was a fucking amazing show all around. Setlist:

https://www.setlist.fm/setlist/carly-rae-jepsen/2019/bill-graham-civic-auditorium-san-francisco-ca-1b917940.html

Incredibly sequenced, she's leaning into the range of her catalog (okay fine, not the first album) perfectly at this point, and it can carry a full show easily. When you can place “Call Me Maybe” six songs in, close the main set with “Party For One” and close the encore and the whole night with a confetti cannon/ultraPride “Cut to the Feeling” you are firing on all fours. Speaking of that, Mark Kanemura really was the killer touch:

Also, the shirts etc were a fun range. We both ended up going for the long sleeve black T-shirt with this on the front and the song title/her name on the back. Very metal.
