Selena Gomez’s fans are getting impatient waiting for the album Gomez has been teasing for many months to come out. Gomez knows. Last night, she reassured fans on via Instagram Story that she’s in the studio. It really is coming. (Gomez’s last album Revival was released in four years ago.)
On the last of three stories, she wrote, “just so you know, I see your comments, and I’m working on it…” She added a rainbow emoji for added morale.
E! and Entertainment Tonight got updates from sources on Gomez’s progress with her new music this summer.
A source told E! in July to expect new music next year. “Selena has been spending a lot of time with her family and friends, being low-key,” the source started. “She has also been writing new music in the studio and hoping to release something early next year. She is in a much better headspace and is really happy right now.” Gomez wasn’t currently dating anyone, the source added, but is “open to start putting herself out there again. She is taking everything day by day and focusing on herself and her music.”
Entertainment Tonight‘s source said to expect some songs this year. “Selena has been working on new music and plans to release some this year,” that source said at the end of July. “The new music is going to be a different side of Selena and very personal. Selena has gone through a lot over the years and is ready to share it with the world.”
Gomez spoke about her album during her April interview on Coach’s Dream It Real podcast. It’s personal and has no collaborations on it, she said. “Working on this new record, I just wanted it to be me, all me,” Gomez started. “Every song is a story I’ve experienced. To that point, I think there’s no one who’s going to tell my story better than myself. I just really wanted to kind of just live with my story a bit and create it into something that means a lot to me.”
