In case you were wondering, artists miss touring just as much as we miss going to concerts, and no one misses touring more than Carly Rae Jepsen. She just released “Me And The Boys In The Band” — an upbeat ode to life on the road.
“Then we pack up, it’s time to go // We’ll do the whole damn thing tomorrow // In a new city, so pretty, let’s go,” Jepsen sings over a disco beat produced by Jack Antonoff. “Just me and the boys in the band.”

A different kind of love song… All this time off the road has me missing the band boys who have become like family. Here’s something we cooked up from home- An ode to travel and adventures. Can’t wait for more. Till then, love from all of us…Me and the Boys in the Band. ❤️
The song was accompanied by a music video that shows off Jepsen and her band’s lives while they’re stuck at home, plus old videos from past shows and tours.
In a statement about the song, Jepsen said, “On the road. That was the life. 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. Can’t wait for more. Till then a from home ‘pick me up’ song from all of us to you. Me and the boys and the band!”
