Carly Rae Jepsen Posts Chic Instagram To Celebrate UK Album Release

If you haven't given "Emotion" a listen, you just might really, really, really, really like it.

Like Canadian pop star Carly Rae Jepsen, we just have a lot of "Emotion," OK?

The "Call Me Maybe" singer's second full-length album dropped in the U.S. in August, but now our friends across the pond can finally join us in reveling to the jazzy sax of "Run Away with Me," the slowed down realness of "All That," and the Sia-influenced "Boy Problems." In other words, if you haven't given CRJ's album a listen yet, now is the time.

Jepsen commemorated the fact that "Emotion" is now available for all to legally download with an Instagram photo showing the singer in a blush-colored top and skirt with an exposed zipper down the middle, paired with a clutch and nude heels. Not the most practical for running away with someone, but probably good enough to tell them you really, really, really, really, really like them.

While the insane success of her first 2012 hit, and "Kiss," the full-length album that followed in just eight short weeks, may have made Jepsen seem like a pop flash in the pan, "Emotion" tells a different story. Jepsen told NPR she wrote "over 200 songs" while figuring out how she wanted the album to sound. "I think there'd been a bit of a tug-of-war going on in my own mind of really having that desire to rebel away from what I'd done before, but also not wanting to stray too far," she continued. 

The sophomore effort has been received by critics as "one of the most pristine pop albums of the year," "adventurously diverse," and "nary a skippable track."  If it's unclear by now, we also agree.
