Peter Thomas, Producer for Hilary Duff, Betty Who & More, Debuts Carly Rae Jepsen Cover feat. Leland - Listen Now!

Peter Thomas is stepping out from behind the boards and into the spotlight.

The superstar pop songwriter and producer, responsible for bops like Hilary Duff‘s “Sparks” and much of Betty Who‘s output, is making his own artist debut on Friday (June 15) with a cover of Carly Rae Jepsen‘s “Run Away With Me” featuring Leland, which you can hear exclusively on Just Jared.

“It was Thanksgiving. Los Angeles was deserted, and I’d just gone through a breakup. I sat down at the piano and began playing Carly Rae Jepsen‘s ‘Run Away With Me.’ I’ve always loved that song. The more I played the it, the more it took on new life for me – a softer, more solitary energy. I felt the vast emptiness of the city at night, the longing for something lost, the rush of something new,” Peter explains.

With plenty of songs “sitting in the vault,” this cover is just the beginning. Listen below!
