Carly Rae Jepsen spoke with Cosmopolitan about the upcoming Grease: Live, and during the interview they talked about a follow-up album to Emotion.
What kind of stuff is inspiring you as you work on new material?
"I'm scared to say out loud and have it in print because I know how much my mind changes through the process. Even where I started with Emotion [versus] where I ended up were completely different places, so right now I can tell you what I'm experimenting with but there's no guarantee that that's what will be on the album. I've been really into this subtle sort of disco. I'm enjoying the combination of ABBA meets Feist. I know that sounds insane, but trust me!"
Deryck Whibley spoke with Fuse about his recovery process, touring, record labels, and the upcoming album.
It seems like a really democratic move. Is there a particular freedom in doing that? Do you get to call all the shots?

I have to say, 'No, wrong, and I'm going to do this anyway.' And they say, 'Fine, you can do...

Whether this plan will prove viable likely depends on the deals that Amazon can work out with the music industry ó or...

Right now we arenít working on any new music and donít have plans to do so any time soon. We arenít breaking up, but after ten years of doing thisóand it being the only thing weíve known since the age of 16ówe thought it was time for all of us to try something else.
Rihanna's ANTI is apparently RIAA-certified platinum, benefitting from the same rule change that gave Jay-Z's Magna Carta Holy Grail platinum status in 2013. Billboard still won't count those sales towards it's charts for the week, unless they also change their rules.

Our current plans are very few and will likely remain that way for a while. Donít read into it. Donít think itís something itís not. This Spring we will be playing eight shows in the United States. Farewell for now.
