Selena’s revival is coming.
Expect new songs and videos from Selena Gomez within the next month.
UPDATE // SEPTEMBER 12:
We’ve known for quite some time Selena is readying new tunes, but a timeline hasn’t been clear until now.
WWD reports Selena has plans to put forth the new material “within the next month.”
I repeat: WITHIN THE NEXT MONTH!!!
They add she is heading to L.A. after NYFW “to tie up some loose ends with the record.”
Q4 smash here we come!
UPDATE // AUGUST 15:
Selena Gomez reconnects with “Good For You” writer Sir Nolan on her favorite song off the new album.
Selena is spilling the tea on her new tunes. In a candid chat with fans in an Instagram Live video, Selena said she’s absolutely in love with one of her new songs titled “Rare.”
“Well… my favorite song is ‘Rare.’ It’s beautiful,” she said. “I can’t wait for you guys to hear it. Then, the regret set in. “OK… I didn’t say any names. It’s one word in a song that I like. I’m so anxious. I just want to play my music and it sounds really fun. I’m not done, but I’m basically done.” Which is it, sis?
FYI, “Rare” also features songwriting from Leland (“Fetish”).

UPDATE // AUGUST 6:
I bring good news! Selena’s forthcoming album is reportedly electro-pop.
@HasItLeaked on Twitter is the source alleging so, and I choose to believe them. Would an account that goes by the name @hasitleaked lie?
They also mention the record was finished in June – see below:

UPDATE // JULY 2:
Selena’s new album reportedly drops this fall.
It was ~confirmed~ by her makeup artist. Selena promised last week it’s coming soon, and she’s very aware no one believes her, so take this with a grain of salt.

UPDATE // JUNE 29:
Selena promises her new music is coming soon, but is very aware we probably won’t believe her because she says this a lot and, yeah, doesn’t follow through. Listen to this soundbite from a new interview.
Gomez says the new tunes will “be sooner than people think but I have said that for quite some time I’m sure they won’t believe me.”
Prove us wrong, sis.

EARLIER // FEBRUARY 13:
If you’re a fan of Selena’s, you know there’s a lot of ups and downs. And I’m not even referring to her on-again off-again relationship with Justin Bieber. I’m talking exclusively about her music. I’m so thirsty, I just don’t know what to make of any of this.
Last week, Gomez said she’s taking her time recording the new album, and it’ll be ready when it’s ready… even if it’s in a decade(!!!). “My next album has been forever in the making,” told Harper’s Bazaar. “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.”
A week later, Gomez is back on Instagram (with a luscious new do) and telling fans via an Insta-story she’s got some “really exciting things” in the pipeline.
“Know that a lack of action on social media is not a lack of my love,” she said. “I’m working on a lot of stuff and I will love on you guys so soon, I promise. Also, last thing, I might get in trouble for saying this but I’m doing some really, really cool stuff with Coach. It’s coming! See, this is why I can’t be on social media,” she continued. “I just say everything!”

So her big announcement is Coach-related? Not so fast.
Gomez posted in a separate clip that she has “some really really really exciting things coming up,” and Selenators are taking that to mean something music-related. Why tease the same announcement twice? Exactly.
Look, we just don’t know what Selena has planned, but if this has nothing to do with her new tunes… I’m unstanning (not really).
