This is her revival?

Selena Gomez has claimed her new album is on the way for a long time. She revealed in June 2018 it was finished, but the pop star must have changed her mind, because we nearly a year later, the pop star confirmed to ET it was “finally done.” You’d assume she would release it in the near future, but you’d be wrong.

According to a source via E! News, Selena won’t be releasing until 2020.

“Selena has been spending a lot of time with her family and friends, being low-key,” the source said. “She has also been writing new music in the studio and hoping to release something early next year. She is in a much better headspace and is really happy right now.”

Gomez is well aware that fans want new music. She posted on Instagram that she’s still “working on it.”

A few months ago, Selena hopped on Instagram Live and told fans the album was on the way.

“I’m just nervous about it, honestly,” Selena said before admitting she’s still recording. “‘Cause I feel like the next few choices that I’m gonna make are very crucial. So I’m trying to be really, really diligent and just patient with everything… the album is coming very soon.”

It’s worth mentioning last summer Selena said her new tunes will “be [out] sooner than people think,” but added: “I have said that for quite some time I’m sure they won’t believe me.”

“My next album has been forever in the making,” she told Harper’s Bazaar in a 2018 interview. “When people ask me why, I’m honest about it: It’s because I haven’t been ready. I mean, point-blank, I don’t feel confident enough in where my music is yet. If that takes 10 years, then it takes 10 years. I don’t care. Right now I just want to be super intentional with all of the things I’m doing.”

We don’t know much about the new tunes, but one of the new songs is titled “Rare.” She teamed up with writer Sir Nolan on it (“Fetish”).

Save pop music, Selena!
