Selena Gomez’s fourth studio album is ready for the recording studio. Speaking to “Only Murders in the Building” co-creator John Hoffman and Anthony D’Alessandro of Deadline’s “Crew Call” podcast on May 23, Gomez revealed that his full-time return to television — including his role in the murder-mystery comedy series and her hosting gig on HBO Max’s “Selena + Chef” – hasn’t stopped her from creating new music. “I just finished season four of my cooking show and I’m in LA working on my album,” she said, confirming that “S4,” a sequel to her 2020 album, ” Rare”, is officially on the way.
News of Gomez’s upcoming album comes a year after the singer hinted that she would “retire” from music to give herself the opportunity to pursue other passions. “I think there are a lot of people who appreciate my music, and for that I’m very grateful, for that I keep going, but I think the next time I do an album it will be different,” Gomez said. in her Vogue 2021 cover article. “I want to try one last time before maybe I stop the music.”
The new album will be Gomez’s first solo release since his 2021 Spanish EP, “Revelación.” In August 2020, the singer also released an “Ice Cream” collaboration with K-pop giant Blackpink. She followed up the sweet single with “999,” a 2021 collab with Camilo, and “Let Somebody Go,” a 2022 collab with Coldplay. With so many great musical partnerships under his belt, we expect some badass artists to land on the new album.
During the “Crew Call” interview, D’Alessandro also asked if Gomez would consider a singing scene in “Only Murders in the Building,” to which the star replied, “I want to be a little careful. I love being Mabel and I love that she’s an extension of me, but she’s not necessarily me Sometimes my concern – not to say I object in any way – is that it could become a pop star, and it’s clearly not me. [But] I am not against.”
