Hey, this is crazy...it's been more than three years since "Call Me Maybe."

And it's been almost two years since Carly Rae Jepsen, who swept the charts with the dance-pop hit (that may have gotten stuck in your head, again, at this very minute), has released a new record. Well, she's making a comeback. The Canadian singer, now 29 years old and still living in New York City a year after her Broadway debut as the star of Cinderella, teased a new single several weeks ago and talked more about her music comeback in a dramatic post on her website, published on Wednesday.

"I've been hiding in forests where one meets a prince and dances till midnight," she said in her post, which was made to look like a handwritten letter. "I've been cocooned in my Soho apartment, sipping tea with artists so weird and wonderful that only New York could keep them happy. I have been hiking to the tippy tops of LA peaks where I've said this out loud to no one...I'm ready. (Imagine the Muddy Waters song playing in my headphones.)"

"I have been quietly so alive and now at long last I am ready to share my heart about it," she said. "The first single is called, 'I Really Like You' and I do--really really really really really really like you that is. Your support as my fans and friends has been everything." 

Last week, Jepsen was spotted filming a music video for the song with none other than Tom HanksJustin Bieberand a group of dancers. A video of the shoot was posted on the Instagram page of a furniture store, BDDW, located on the same street.

Jepsen also posted teaser pics on her Twitter and Instagram page.

I know I really like you when I start to write songs about you. #IReallyLikeYou

Jepsen and Bieber, 20, share the same manager, Scooter Braun, 33. The two pop singers and Hanks, 58, attended his wedding in July 2014. There, the actor also showcased his moves, dancing to Montell Jordan's 1995 hit "This Is How We Do It."

Jepsen had last year concentrated on her theater work. She made her Broadway debut in the Broadway musical Rodgers + Hammerstein's Cinderella, playing main character Ella for four months.

Her latest single "Take a Picture," was released in May 2013, months after she dropped the song "Tonight I'm Getting Over You." Both flopped.

"Call Me Maybe," her breakout, No. 1 single and her most popular track, was released in September 2011 and has sold more than 9 million copies in the United States. It was also nominated for two Grammys. Jepsen is also known for another No. 1 song, the 2012 tune "Good Time," which features Owl City. It sold more than 2 million copies.

Her new single is expected to be released in March, Jepsen's manager told Billboard.

"I told her that she couldn't come out with anything unless it was on the level of 'Call Me Maybe,'" he said. "And, now we have a new one that is on that level."
