Since you’re not doing anything productive right now, come let’s sing our hearts out to this new Carly Rae Jepsen song from her upcoming album E•MO•TION. It’s a chirpy jam about rushing to “hi-jack” someone in their moment of need and has a thump of a beat that feels its own urgency.

“Making the Most of the Night” is Carly urging you to chill and break out of that funky mood, with motivational speak that’s a cool burst of optimism in this dismal world. “I’ll run to your side when your heart is bleeding/ I’m coming to get ya, to get ya, to get ya,” she sings. The lyrics have Sia’s empathetic mark all over them.
