Selena Gomez Is Back With New Album
“There is no might, there is an album.”
Apparently, Selena Gomez can’t keep her hands or — thankfully — her new music to herself. In an interview with BBC Radio 1 ‘s Nick Grimshaw on Monday, the pop star — who has released four singles in the last year — revealed that her next album will be out “very soon.”
“There is no ‘might,’ there is an album,” Selena said. “I think it’s fair to say that people know the year I’ve had, and I’ve poured my heart into my music and I wanted it to be fresh. It wasn’t really about charts for me, or numbers. It was more just about, what could I creatively do for my music. So, yes, I can successfully say that my inspiration for this next album is in full motion and it will be very soon.”
The ” Wolves ” singer, who underwent akidney transplant over the summer and has been open about her anxiety and other mental health struggles, told Nick that making the album has been a healing process for her. “I did it for over a year, so it was [therapeutic] for me, but now it’s exciting to be in a place where I love surprising people and creating new areas of music I can explore,” she said. “And I’ll get to be present, you know? I was taking some time off for my health and it was good, but now I get to be here. I’ll be back.”
Selena has been teasing her upcoming album quite a bit lately. When “Wolves” dropped at the end of October, she spoke to Zane Lowe for an Apple Music interview . “To be honest, I feel like I have two albums already completed,” she said. “I’m wanting to figure it out. It’s a lot sooner than I think people anticipate, but I also want to call the shots. I want it to be good. I want it to be ready. I don’t want to do anything that feels forced. It’ll be soon, I definitely feel stoked about putting a piece together.”
And over the weekend, Sel shared a photo on her ( no longer private ) Instagram of her singing into a microphone, presumably in a recording studio. “Currently. Until the next year. Here’s where I’ll be,” she captioned the photo.
Now that sounds like the perfect holiday gift for her fans.
