Gomez to Release New Album Next March

If you’re tired of hittin’ repeat-peat-peat-peat-peat-peat on Selena Gomez’s last album When the Sun Goes Down, you’ll only have to wait a little longer for new music.

The 20-year-old half-Mexican American singer/actress, who has been focusing more in recent months on acting projects like Spring Breakers and Getaway will reportedly release her next studio album in March 2013.

Gomez was in Texas on Wednesday to help Ryan Seacrest open Seacrest Studios, an interactive media experience for kids at the Children’s Medical Center of Dallas. During the event, Seacrest posted via Twitter, “@selenagomez just told me new album in march fyi,” and linked to a photo of himself and the former Disney Channel star.

Though no other information has been released, the news hints at the end of Gomez’s musical hiatus, which started back in January 2012.

To date Gomez’s last album, When The Sun Goes Down, has sold 642,000 copies since its June 2011 release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. The album — her third with her band Selena Gomez & The Scene — spawned her biggest airplay hit ever, “Love You Like a Love Song,” which reached No. 15 on the Billboard Radio Songs chart and her first top 10 on the Pop Songs tally.

Since the album’s release, Gomez has turned her attention to acting, lending her voice to Hotel Transylvania and returning to her Disney roots for a Wizards of Waverly Place special. She also launched a self-titled fragrance last spring.

It’s no wonder Gomez was recently named Glamour magazine’s 2012 Woman of the Year for her burgeoning career and her continued philanthropic work with UNICEF.
