The 25-year-old pop star confirmed that she has been working on her new album, which will be coming out next year.
“There is no might, there is an album,” she noted. “And I think it’s fair to say that people know the year I’ve had, and I’ve poured my heart into my music and I wanted it to be fresh. It wasn’t really about charts for me or numbers. It was more just about what I could creatively do for my music. Yes, I can successfully say that my inspiration for this next album is in full motion and it will be very soon.”
Gomez released several singles in 2017, including “Bad Liar,” “Fetish,” and “Wolves,” but has not released a complete album since 2015’s Revival.
The former Disney star also excited fans on Instagram on Sunday, posting a photo of herself in the studio with the caption: “Currently. Until the next year. Here’s where I’ll be.”
She also opened up about her evolving sound on the radio show, saying, “It’s exciting to be in a place where I love surprising people and creating new areas of music I can explore. And I’ll get to be present, you know? I was taking some time off for my health and it was good, but now I get to be here.”
One rumor that sadly isn’t true involves Gomez playing the role of Sabrina the Teenage Witch in the new reboot.
“I love that! That’s new information for me. No, that’s a rumor,” she said. “I’ve done my magic enough.”
