“Call Me, Cohen??”: Jepsen Says Veteran Singer Should Cover Her Hit

‘Call Me Maybe’ singer Carly Rae Jepsen has dispensed of all irony and disclosed that she would love Leonard Cohen to perform a cover version of her international hit.

In conversation with The Guardian, Jepsen said:

“I suspect it’s not totally his genre, but it would be a hoot to watch him perform it! Although, to be honest, I don’t know if I really want to see Leonard Cohen do anything but Famous Blue Raincoat on repeat…”

‘Call Me Maybe’ has been covered by various outfits already, including the case of television show Glee, the United States Olympic swimming team and 2012 Mercury Music Prize hopeful Ben Howard.

Jepsen is happy that her song is being covered, stating that “there’s been something encouraging to see” from all of them.
