AUSTIN — In the middle of Spring Break, promoting her movie “Spring Breakers,” Selena Gomez has even another reason to party. The pop singer and actress has been completing work on her new album, and revealed to HitFix during our interview this week at the South By Southwest film conference the title of her new single: “Come and Get It” will be out in April, and it will be a “good taste” of the album to follow.
“This is the hardest I’ve ever worked on an album,” Gomez told me during our sit-down, during which she described the overall sound as “pop-electro.” She calls “Come and Get It” a fun dance track.
What it won’t have is Taylor Swift. MTV previously Tweeted that Gomez’ next single was co-written by Swift, but Gomez seemed perplexed at the suggestion that she collaborated with her friend. “I definitely didn’t work with Taylor on this record, but she’s heard my stuff,” she explained.
The as-yet-untitled album, however, will boast the influence of “Spring Breakers” composer and soundtrack man Skrillex.
Gomez’ last album, “When the Sun Goes Down,” was released in 2011.
