Christina Aguilera Announces 'Lotus' Album, 'Your Body' Single

Christina Aguilera will be blooming with "Lotus" this winter.
The singer announced the new album on Twitter on Wednesday, calling the set "a rebirth for me." "Lotus" is due in November, with Max Martin-produced lead single "Your Body" set for release this Friday.
"Album title: Lotus. Representing an unbreakable flower that survives under the hardest conditions and still thrives," she wrote on Twitter.
And Aguilera's first album since 2010's "Bionic" may find her exploring a range of styles.
"Conceptually I didn't target one particular sound/genre," Aguilera tweeted, explaining that "a Lotus intro" will "set the tone for the whole record."
The release shouldn't interfere with her current coaching role on NBC reality competition "The Voice," which returned for its third season this week -- at least not yet.
"I"m excited for S3 & #TeamXTina," she wrote. "Love this show! But I'm also excited to be in artist mode and sharing new music."
"The Voice" producer Mark Burnett previously told Billboard that there may be "moving pieces" in future seasons as the show's stars take time to tour.
"Here's the fact we decided: When you've been on this show, that's your chair for life," Burnett said. "So if they have to tour and someone comes in for a season and then goes out for a season, comes back for a season, there will never be anyone getting replaced, ever."
