Selena Gomez recently sat down with Apple Music’s Zane Lowe for a chat about her new song “Wolves” and what comes next. According to Selena, she’s sitting on two albums’ worth of unreleased music that is ready to go. While she hinted a surprise release may be coming soon, she made it clear she wasn’t planning on releasing an album at all.
“I honesty really didn’t want to put out an album at first because I just felt like I don’t want to rush things,” Selena said. Explaining what the promotional cycle is like for her, she said, “It just became so loud and I was just like, ‘No. I’m going to release the songs I want to release and just take my time.'”
“I was also going through stuff personally and I just wanted to take care of myself,” she continued. Despite her hesitation with an album, Selena says she’s prepared herself for her own revival: “I’m ready. I want to get back in and re-focus on all of my music.”
“To be honest, I feel like I have two albums already completed, but I’m wanting to figure it out,” she said of the music she’s been working on. As far as a release date, Selena said, “It’s a lot sooner than I think people anticipate.”
