Selena Gomez is gearing up to release a brand new record, it has been alleged, with sources saying that the singer is just weeks away from making the announcement.
While fans weren’t sure whether or not their pop idol was going to focus on putting out a full body of work after having previously said in interviews that she wanted to take a much-needed break from the industry to focus on her well-being, insiders reveal that Selena Gomez is almost done with the recording.
The 24-year-old’s decision to return to the studio so soon was a rather sudden decision that came about after she started dating The Weeknd, it’s been said.
Prior to her relationship with the “Starboy” hitmaker, Selena Gomez had told her family that she was destined to remain on the right path after having completed her rehab stint in Tennessee. In order to prevent facing a relapse and returning back to her depressive mindset, Selena Gomez stressed that a break from Hollywood was well overdue.
However, once she started dating The Weeknd, sources say that Selena Gomez started feeling so confident in herself that all of her fears and worries simply faded away, according to Daily Mail. She’s credited her beau for making her empowered and strong enough to fight her battle with anxiety and lupus.
Getting back into the studio has been like therapy for Selena Gomez, and having The Weeknd by her side, who’s reportedly been guiding and assisting her with the project, Selena Gomez is firmly convinced that making music for her fan and sharing her story is exactly what she should be doing.
“Selena will be dropping new music soon, very soon,” a source confirms, stressing that the singer is expected to make an announcement very soon, Hollywood Life asserts. “After taking a big break from work and getting to a healthy place with life, Selena has worked hard on an amazing body of work and she is set to share it with the world.”
“She has a ton of new stuff on the way, a new album, new video and even plans to get back on the road to support the new stuff. Being alongside her incredible boyfriend Abel, who is in the middle of his tour, has inspired her to get back on stage despite her challenges during her last tour.”
The new album that Selena Gomez plans to put out later this year will feature her brand new single, “Bad Liar,” which has found itself climbing the Billboard Hot 100 at a rather rapid pace in the past week. There’s no denying that the singer’s fans are happy to get some new music material from the 24-year-old.
With that said, the former Disney Channel star is also said to be planning a world tour that will kick off sometime in 2018. While it’s rather worrying for fans to know that Selena Gomez is making such a drastic step to head back on the road, she will be supported by The Weeknd, which is giving her the confidence that things will be just fine.
As of now, Selena Gomez has not shared any news regarding a new album release, but from what sources have said, the record is almost finished. There’s also a chance that Selena will end up collaborating on a brand new song with her man, which would explain the alleged studio sessions the duo had together a few months ago.
Again, Selena Gomez will confirm everything in due time, but with singles already being announced, it doesn’t seem to be a secret anymore that an album is bound to follow — fans will have to be patient to find out the official release date.
