Selena Gomez Says “Feel Me” Won’t Be Released, Describes Her New LP As “Vibey”
Selena Gomez has taken a less-is-more approach to promotion this time around (basically, she hasn’t done any), but that seems to be changing with a series of radio interviews. The pop star spoke to Carson Daly at 97.1 Amp Radio this morning (June 8) and crushed the hopes of Selenators holding out hope for a studio version of “Feel Me,” which she performed on The Revival World Tour. “We recorded while I was on the road,” she reveals. “I guess maybe there was an intention to go right into another album, but like I said, I kinda took a break.”
“I don’t know,” Selena mused. “I think the song is one of my favorite songs ever. It’s so fun. It’s got a really good vibe, but I don’t know if it will ever be official released. We’re kind of focussing on the new stuff.” Well, that’s depressing. But also understandable given that it seems to be about a certain ex, while her new music is inspired by the current state of her love life. The 24-year-old then opened up about her next LP, which is shaping up to be the diva’s most eclectic yet. “I can technically say I have an album, but I don’t know where I want to go with it because of how different everything sounds,” she admitted.
“I’m not just saying that because I feel like, ‘Oh, that’s exciting!’ Every song I’m setting up to be a single is just completely separate from each other and I love that,” the “Bad Liar” hitmaker continued. “So, I don’t know where it’s going to go, but I can say I have an album because it’s a lot of music.” And there will be a body of work. Selena isn’t interested in just dropping singles. “I appreciate albums. I get it. I know how much music is changing, but you know, I’ve still got my fan base that I want to [give] special things to, music that deserves to be listened to that maybe won’t be on the radio. It will just be for them.”
Last but not least, she was asked to describe the album in three words. “Intentional, refreshing and moody… but in a good way. I’m all about a good mood. Vibey.” I think that’s technically four adjectives, but who’s counting.
