The US star is back with the video for her next single from new album 'Stars Dance'.

Selena Gomez has opened up about her newly unveiled music video for 'Slow Down' and says she purposefully included "darker themes' in the new promo.

The 'Come & Get It' singer is back with the second single from her new album 'Stars Dance' and says she loved getting to shoot the video out in Paris recently.

"Well I wanted it to be different than 'Come & Get It' in the slightest way," Selena revealed to MTV News this week. "I think 'Come & Get It' was more of that sensual vibe and is very beautiful and 'Slow Down' is a little bit harder so we kind of went for more darker themes.

"It was fun, the dancing was great and we got to shoot it in Paris, so that was amazing and unbelievable," she explained. "It was a good experience."

The US superstar went on to say what she loves about music videos is getting to dress up in outfits and costumes she wouldn't normally be able to wear.

"Music is dress up for me. It's like I get to play different characters and I get to be a more glamorised version of myself," she explained. "I would never get away with wearing half those things I wore in the video like just to the store or on a carpet, it wouldn't translate!"

Selena Gomez has been promoting new album 'Stars Dance' out in New York City this week.
