Certified star Carly Rae Jepson has released a pandemic pop bop to help us all ease into the second half of another week in various stages of COVID-19 lockdown.

Me and the Boys in the Band is, according to Jepson, about missing her life on the road. 

"On the road. That was the life," she shared on socials.

"I miss travel and performing and my band mates who over the years have become my adopted brothers. Through romantic relationships good and bad I have always found myself again in the late-night conversations with my band.


"Here’s to all the shows we have played and have yet to play. The late-night dancers we turn into on the long bus drives and the tourists we become in the early mornings. Here’s to nostalgia city and keeping close the ones that know you best."

The Canadian singer, who recently released an album titled Dedicated Side B, went on to say she "can’t wait for more."

However, "till then a from home ‘pick me up’ song from all of us to you."
