‘Lotus’ followup on hold.

Fans waiting for Christina Aguilera’s eighth studio album will have to wait a bit longer for it.

Which is extremely upsetting considering we haven’t received a new record from the pop star since 2012’s Lotus. Instead, Xtina will turn her attention on a new feature film project titled Zoe when shooting begins in Montreal on May 8, Variety reports. It’s directed by Drake Doremus and co-stars Theo James, Rashida Jones, Miranda Ottom Ewan McGregor and Léa Seydoux.

It’s described as a “futuristic love story.” Bionic teas.

I do want to point out Christina confirmed her new album drops this year, so there’s still hope. Just… less of it.
