Selena Gomez is hinting at new music…
In a recent Instagram post, the 30-year-old Mexican American singer/actress teased that her highly anticipated follow-up to 2021’s Spanish language EP Revelación and 2020’s full length album Rare — her last proper solo release — is finally underway, sharing photos from the studio to prove it.
In a carousel of black-and-white photos posted to Instagram Tuesday (June 13), Gomez is sitting in front of a microphone recording vocals for her still unannounced next project. In one picture, she concentrates while reading from a sheet of paper.
“Don’t worry guys, it’s coming,” she captioned the photos. “Even from Paris.”
Gomez has spent the past couple weeks in the City of Love, as documented in recent Instagram photos taken in front of the Eiffel Tower and in French restaurants.
Last month, she was spotted in the crowd at Beyoncé’s Renaissance Tour concert in Paris, as were Megan Thee Stallion and Kylie Jenner.
The Only Murders In the Building actress has previously given hints about the direction of her next musical era, which she says will be more upbeat and vulnerable.
“The music I’m doing right now is about real things that I’m walking through,” she told Vanity Fair in February. “It’s really powerful, strong, very pop. The theme generally is freedom — freedom from relationships, freedom from the darkness.”
It’s been three years now since fans have gotten an album from the star, though she did drop an EP of all Spanish songs in 2021 called Revalación.
She’s also collaborated with a variety of artists in the meantime — including her 2022 hits “Calm Down” with Rema and “Let Somebody Go” with Coldplay — but aside from her documentary’s accompanying single “My Mind & Me,” it’s been a long time since Gomez has released a bona fide solo project.
As of late, Gomez has been hard at work running her Rare Beauty empire, wrapping up the third season of her acclaimed Hulu series Only Murders In The Building and HBO Max series Selena + Chef, as well as preparing two new cooking shows for Food Network.
