New Jessica Simpson music is on the way!

While promoting her upcoming memoirOpen Book, the 39-year-old singer revealed that, in conjunction with the book's release, she'll also drop six new songs that tell her story. The songs will be included on the memoir's audio book, which Simpson narrated herself.

"It’s been a long hard deep emotional journey, one that I’ve come through the other side with pure happiness and fulfillment and acceptance of myself," she tells People. "I’ve used my pain and turned it into something that can be beautiful and hopefully inspiring to people."

"I’ve never felt more inspired," Simpson adds. "There is power in the truth."

The upcoming songs will mark Simpson's first foray into music since 2010, when she released Happy Christmas

During a 2015 interview with Today, Simpson teased that she would "absolutely" return to music someday.

"That's how I started, and that's one of my biggest passions in the world," she said at the time. "I love to use my voice."

Open Book will hit shelves Feb. 4.
