Selena Gomez has announced that new music is on its way! Here is everything the pop star said about her upcoming record...
It's official, Selena Gomez has broken ground on her next album, and she's gearing up to a whole new era!
The 30-year-old star has given us the news we've all been waiting for, confirming that her fourth studio record is on the way – but she hasn't revealed its title just yet.

The 'Lose You To Love Me' songstress spoke to Anthony D'Alessandro on Deadline's Crew Call podcast back in May and revealed that she's 'working' on new music as we speak.
Upon the release of the singer's My Mind & Me documentary, which also debuted a brand new single, Selena finally dropped the new song in November - and it even won an award for 'Film Song of the Year' at the Variety Hitmakers Brunch in Los Angeles in December.
Sel discussed her upcoming music when she joined Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show in December 2023, and she promised the bops with the new record. She told Jimmy: "I'm just so used to writing sad girl songs because I'm good at that, but I'm ready to have some fun. And I think people are going to like it."
Selena is undeniably a force to be reckoned with as she balances her pop star lifestyle with her acting career, earlier this year she spoke to Deadline about the upcoming second season of Hulu's Only Murders in the Building in tandem with her looming LP.
She dished on her busy schedule: "I just finished Season 4 of my cooking show [ Selena + Chef ], and I am in L.A. working on my album now."
When quizzed on her next era, Selena kept her cards close to her chest but hinted that she could make a return to the road, revealing that she's "open to a tour, 1,000 per cent".

Selena spoke further about the style of songwriting she'll showcase with the new album, she revealed to Vanity Fair that her upcoming drop is "very pop".
"The music I’m doing right now is about real things that I’m walking through. It’s really powerful, strong," the star explained.
She went on to share that thematically the record will be marking a departure from her more melancholy projects: "The theme generally is freedom—freedom from relationships, freedom from the darkness."
The ex-Disney darling has quite the collection of projects under her belt, having released three previous studio records, two compilation albums, as well as four extended plays – and that's not even covering her work under the stage name Selena Gomez & The Scene!
Her last released work came in 2021 with the arrival of 'Revelación', a long-promised Spanish-centric EP. Her only musical venture in 2022 thus far manifested in a collaboration with none other than Coldplay with the track 'Let Somebody Go'.
We can't wait to see what this pop powerhouse puts out next!
