Gomez teased before that the album will be personal and pop-focused when speaking about the work to Jimmy Fallon this summer. “I’m actually done [my new album],” she told the Tonight Show host. “I have to do a few finishing things with it but I’m just relieved. 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 going to feel good about what I was saying?’ So I just kept going, and I’m relieved.”
Genre-wise, Gomez said,”I think there’s always going to be a sense of strong pop in my music, but I definitely explored more with electric guitar, a lot of more soulful tracks underneath things, acoustic guitar, it all kind of hits different places that I feel like is my lane for music,” she continued. “It’s just, ‘live in that world and mellow.’”

‘Look At Her Now’
‘Lose You To Love Me’
‘People You Know’
‘Let Me Get There’
