"Home," due out in November, also features Rih as a voice actress.
Rihanna did not release an album in the fourth quarter of 2013, making last year the first since 2008 that didn't include a stocking stuffer from the pop star. The end of 2014 will apparently bring a new album from the singer -- but instead of the official follow-up to "Unapologetic," Rihanna will offer a concept album based around an upcoming animated movie.
According to Variety, Rihanna will record an album centered on the DreamWorks Animation release "Home," due in theaters on Nov. 26, and perform new songs in the film. The news was announced on Tuesday (Feb. 26) by DreamWorks Animation head Jeffrey Katzenberg.
