Carly Rae Jepsen shot into the spotlight with her hit single 'Call Me Maybe', and is now looking to recreate that success with her upcoming fourth studio album, despite the tracks being nothing like those of her past.

Speaking to Entertainment Tonight, she explained: "I'm kind of nervous to say too much, but I'm definitely inspired by a little bit of disco sounds. I don't know where it's coming from but I can't help myself."

The singer also spoke about the recent shooting tragedies which have rocked Orlando, with a gunman launching a homophobic terrorist attack at the Pulse gay nightclub, killing 49 people.

Performing just hours later at the Los Angeles Pride Music Festival & Parade in West Hollywood, Carly said: "L.A. Pride... was a really heavy one for us with everything that happened, but we were determined to go, and the moment we were together and singing as a group and not letting fear get in the way, it felt like the strongest, healthiest decision. I think it was a beautiful night for that reason."

She continued: "You can't let fear win in those situations. There's always gonna be some people that you don't understand in the world, who can do horrible things, but I think there is forever more good."
