The first teaser from her forthcoming new album
The Canadian pop star is expected to release her as-yet-untitled fourth studio album next year, which’ll follow 2015’s ‘Emotion’. Jepsen last released new material back in May 2017 with the single ‘Cut To The Feeling’, which was originally intended for inclusion on ‘Emotion’.
Today marks her return, with a single all about self-love and independence.
“To me ‘Party For One’ is an anthem of what it is to celebrate time with yourself, which is a hard thing for people to really enjoy sometimes, and it’s something I’m learning to do more and more,” Jepsen said in a statement. “This song represents a lot of what this album is about for me which is romantic love but self-love too.”
You can watch the video below and the artwork for the single below that.

The track was co-written by Jepsen and produced by Captain Cuts and HIGHTOWER, while the video was directed by Bardia Zeinali.
Jepsen is scheduled to perform the song live next week (November 5) on an episode of The Tonight Show.
Speaking of the forthcoming album, the 32-year-old said it will be predominantly inspired by disco, but failed to give fans an expected release date when asked about her next music project by a Japanese radio station.
“I have a baby plan for the album,” she said in September 2017. “It would be great to get it here as soon as possible, but it’s also more important to get it right. I’m in the cleaning up phases right now. Just making sure it’s all polished.”
