Speaking to Elite Daily, Jepsen said she has been working with producer Patrik Berger on some tracks. "I can still... beat what I've got and experiment in different places without any of the pressure," she said of the new music. "I'm really looking forward to getting it out there soon. Right now, it's just about being a weird little experiment."

Asked what she's listening to at the moment, the Canadian artist said he tastes are a little more "somber" than the music she makes. "I've kind of had a little darker taste for moodier music that I listen to. Probably to offset stuff I write since it's more joyful, happier things. But, there's this song called “Paul” by Big Thief that I'm really into and “Baby” by Ariel Pink. I think it's fantastic and so sexy."

In 2016 Jepsen released Emotion B-Sides. Her latest single "Cut To The Feeling" was released in May of this year as part of the Trolls movie soundtrack.
