Carly Rae Jepsen Shares New Video for “Western Wind”

By: Staff –

Carly Rae Jepsen has shared her new single “Western Wind.” Produced by Rostam Batmanglij “Western Wind” is available now at all digital retailers via 604 Records.

“Western Wind” inhabits a warm and hypnotic atmosphere achieved through a delicate tapestry of elements: sunlit guitar tones, soulful piano melodies, the luminous textures of Hammond B3 organ, an elegant patchwork of percussion. Graced with Jepsen’s radiant vocal work, the result is a spellbinding backdrop to her lyrical storytelling, infusing the song’s mood of nostalgia and longing with a lovely euphoria.  

Like all her output to date — such as her critically lauded and culture-shaping 2015 album E*MO*TION — “Western Wind” embodies a charmed quality that invites a certain daydreaming on the part of the listener. As Jepsen reveals, the song emerged from the deep solitude of quarantine, a period of time that compelled her toward her most introspective songwriting yet.

Complementing the beauty of the song is an equally stunning video shot in the natural elements of Southern California by Taylor Fauntleroy. Watch it below.
