Covering Carly Rae Jepsen’s “Call Me Maybe” at this point seems a day late and a dollar short. I guess we really can’t blame Ryan Murphy too much since Jepsen’s hit blew up after Glee wrapped its third season. Gleeks would have to wait for the cast to return from their vacays to hear the show put its own spin on the Summer song of 2012.

The “Call Me Maybe” performance will appear on Glee’s Season 4 premiere this Thursday. Thanks to the network, we have a sneak peek of it a couple of days before airing on television. Singing the infectious pop song is the new, New Directions crew. With most of the club graduated, Will Scheuster’s club is certainly looking anemic. Brittany, Blaine, Tina and newcomer Wade cover the track. Not sure why Artie is sitting this one out and watching from the audience, but I suppose we’ll find out later this week. Check out the video below.
