It’s Finally Happening! Christina Aguilera’s ‘Liberation’ Era Is Almost Upon Us

Everything We Know About Xtina's 8th LP
From collaborators to song titles, here's what we know about Christina's new opus.

Brace yourself, Fighters. Christina Aguilera is about to rise up with a new era! No, really. During a performance in Baku, Azerbaijan on Saturday (April 28), Xtina all but confirmed Liberation as the title of her long-overdue album during an interlude. “This is my liberation. This is our liberation. Be liberated with me,” she cooed over an atmospheric production while a screen broadcast some moody promotional footage. A snippet of that later appeared on the Legend’s social media accounts.

But wait, there’s more. If you look a little closer at the Lotus queen’s concert teaser, you can see the words “Liber” written in the first box as well as “XLR-8” in the ninth box — a sneaky piece of information that supports the rumor that the lead single is called “Accelerate.” Christina even hints at the song’s release date. Box 11 has the numbers “5318,” which fans are interpreting as the 3rd of May (i.e. this Friday). She continued the sneaky rollout this morning by sharing a video still. See the evidence below.
