'Call Me Maybe' star opens for Justin Bieber

(Continued)

“Call Me Maybe” (which was included on the six-song EP, “Curiosity,” which was released this past February) makes a return appearance on “Kiss.” “Good Time” (which is also on the new Owl City CD, “The Midsummer Station”) is also featured on “Kiss.” And the rest of “Kiss” sticks to the playful dance-pop of those two songs, as Jepsen sings her way through 10 additional tracks that include cheery uptempo tunes like “This Kiss,” “Turn Me Up” and “Hurt So Good” and an occasional ballad, like “Beautiful,” which features guest vocals from Bieber.

Jepsen’s opening set on Bieber’s “Believe” tour will feature many of the songs from “Kiss.” While Jepsen said there are a few visual bells and whistles in the show, the focus is on the music Jepsen and her band plays during her set.

“We’ve definitely been having a lot of fun creating the show,” Jepsen said. “We really focused in on wanting the music to feel great. So we’ve been perfecting the songs as best we can and making a set list that feels like home.”
