According to a tweet from the French arm of her label, Def Jam, the new single is due out Monday, with the album set for a November release. That tweet has since been deleted, and replaced with the following tweet clarifying that more information will be made available tomorrow, Thursday, September 13:
Nouvelle annonce ce jeudi à propos de Rihanna sur notre compte.

Although our French is rusty, we’re pretty sure a rough translation of that is, “Whoops, sorry guys! We totally dropped the ball releasing that info two days early, but just hold your breath until Thursday and then Rihanna can come rule the charts once more.” Or something.
