Multi-platinum, Grammy, Juno, and Polaris Prize nominated singer/songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen has released a brand new song just in time for those who are happy to be spending Valentine’s Day by themselves.

The new song is titled “Let’s Be Friends” and was written by Jepsen, Ben Romans, Christopher J Baran, and was produced by Romans and Baran. “’Let’s Be Friends’ is about the little lie we all share to soften the blow of a breakup,” says Jepsen.  “This Valentine’s Day I’d prefer to just rip off the band aid. See you never!”

The song is out now via 604/Schoolboy/Interscope Records, and you can watch the lyric video below.

Jepsen just kicked off a European tour, which features a sold-out show at O2 Brixton Academy in London on February 8th. Additionally, Jepsen will be performing at this year’s Coachella Valley Music and Arts Festival and Governor’s Ball.
