We’re getting closer and closer to the new album from Ms. Selena…

Selena Gomez is officially back, and notably better than ever, and stopped by iHeart Radio when she was in New York City to discuss her new music. Talking about those adorable teaser baby photos, Selena said that they were 100% planned and it all makes so much sense now!

“The baby photos that I was teasing along with new images from what I was about to release, I knew that ‘Look At Her Now‘ was coming right after ‘Lose You To Love Me.'” she said. She continued, “It just felt like one of those moments where you could step back and say this is insane that I’ve walked through what I’ve walked through, and becoming who I’m becoming.”

As for her album that’s due out next year? She’s just as excited as we are! “I sound like such a nerd, but I cannot wait for this to come out. It has taken a few years, and things that started in the beginning are solid and still a part of my record, and then some just came naturally and just … it was so easy.”

Selena also opened about one of her favorite tracks, as of now, but revealed that they change everyday. “One of my favorite records is a song that’s all about what I was explaining earlier, having that talk with yourself saying I’m not gonna and it’s actually an upbeat song,” she said. “It’s a weird subject of saying I’m not gonna let myself stay in a negative space, but it’s happy. It’s more just celebrating that I don’t wanna self-loath, and I don’t wanna sit in that, and I wanna be able to express myself.”

She added, “I don’t have myself figured out at all, but I did find that peace in me where I was able to say I could share this, and this is how I’m going to feel good about doing that, and I’m in a good place, and I think this is right for me.”

While there is not official release date for the album, from what us fans know, we do know that the LP will be out early next year! It’s great to see that Selena is doing so well and though she may not have herself completely figured out just yet, it’s easy to see and say just how much of an inspiration this woman is.
