Selena Gomez to Unveil New Single, Perform at MTV Movie Awards
Selena Gomez is ready to jump back into the music biz.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter tied to her latest film, Spring Breakers, the former Disney darling confessed that her entire album was in the can -- and now the rollout has officially begun.
Gomez is set to release the first single, titled “Come and Get It,” off her forthcoming album on April 8, and will perform the song for the first time live at the MTV Movie Awards April 14.
Speaking with THR, Gomez describes her fourth studio effort as "a little island-y, a little Spanish-y and a little pop – but almost dance pop."
"It’s kind of all over the place, but I’m really excited about it," she adds. "It’s definitely the hardest I have ever worked on a record, that’s for sure. I wanted to have more creative control over the album’s direction."
More announcements are expected to follow in the coming weeks, as Gomez also plans to tour to promote her latest studio release.
In other former Disney star news, the Jonas Brothers are also officially back in the game and will release their latest single, “Pom Poms,” on April 2. The song is the JoBros’ first after a three-year hiatus and will be featured on their forthcoming fifth studio album. "Pom Poms" is produced by Nick Jonas and written by Nick Jonas, Joe Jonas, Kevin Jonas and Paul Phamous.
