Selena Gomez is firing up the promotional engines. In a series of social media posts starting on Thursday (Oct. 17), the singer hinted that new music could finally be on the horizon, with some Selenators speculating that it could be out before the next sleep.
Gomez, who hasn’t release a full-length album since her sophomore Revival set in 2015, got hearts racing with a moody black and white pic in which she’s hiding behind a veil accompanied by the message, “Rose colored glasses all distorted.”
That was followed by yet another cryptic post with an animated venue marquee with another lyric-sounding message that read,”I saw the signs and I ignored it,” along with a caption featuring a Spotify shout-out. The streaming service then retweeted, with the addition of the eyes emoji:

Things got even more interesting over on Twitter, where Gomez gave Amazon a shout too, posting a Times Square ad for Amazon Music that features her face and the line “Ask Alexa to follow me… @AmazonMusic.”

While a spokesperson for Gomez could not be reached for comment at press time, in June she told Jimmy Fallon that she was done with her new album and that she just needed to tie up a few loose ends. “I have to do a few finishing things with it, but I’m just relieved,” she said on The Tonight Show. “It took me four years now to even feel at a good place with this album, and it’s just because I had such huge moments that happened in my life personally that ‘how was I going to capture that?’ And how was I actually gonna feel good about what I was saying?”
In case you were worried, though, she said there’s definitely a “strong pop” feel to the then-untitled album, but also some electric and acoustic guitars and some “soulful” tracks as well.
