"When the time came to put a name to this album…" / "Cuando llegó la hora de buscarle un título a este disco…"


I’m so happy that I will soon be sharing my latest album with you all, something I’ve been working on for over two years now. The work on this album has spanned a very eventful time, with many ups and downs but ultimately, the happiest period in my life thus far, including the birth of my son. I’ve explored many different directions, worked with many different people, and written many, many demos before arriving at the finished product I will soon be presenting to you. 

When the time came to put a name to this album, I realized that it’s not exactly a thematic album, though love is and always has been one of my main subjects and sources for inspiration. It’s also not necessarily conceptual, as some of my albums have been in the past. 

In the end, what I realized is that throughout the course of creating this body of work, I learned a lot about myself. Though I didn’t realize it at the time, all the directions I began exploring in the initial phases of recording were helping to pave a path for me of rediscovery. In the end I realized that I will always be a little bit of everything and I don’t have to choose. I am sometimes extremely sensitive, sometimes upbeat, others dreamy and romantic, and even at times a little melodramatic. (Call it the Caribbean blood.) But always authentic and always sincere.

Most importantly, I am enough. Imperfections and all. So what I am offering you now is just that.

Shakira. 
Nothing more. A little bit of rock, a little bit of folk, a little reggae and naturally some dance--but as always, and above all, a lot of heart.

I hope you enjoy. 

Shakira

(The new album, Shakira, is out March 25th)

Here's the official album cover for the exclusive Target Deluxe version of "Shakira" which will feature 3 bonus tracks!

In another tweet, Afrojack said that he was having a "fun listening session" with Shakira. I hope that does not mean they are listening to old songs to cover or re-work....

I'm not sure exactly what the job of a music producer is...

I'm not sure exactly what the job of a music producer is...

Hmmm, to me, a listening session would imply that Afrojack came up with some beats and/or sounds he thinks Shakira might be interested in and is now playing them for her to get her opinion. She then decides whether or not she'd like to make something out of it or try something completely different with another producer.

I'm very excited about this though! Afrojack is rising in the music world, and ironically is most well-known for Give Me Everything with Pitbull (the song Shakira originally was supposed to be featured on). Definitely think this will end up being a Latin-dance track. Can't wait!!! :D

EDIT: I wonder how serious she is about getting back out there again with another album. Seems quite soon ... unless this is for the Greatest Hits album or she's just in the very very very basic stages for a new album. I certainly wouldn't expect to see new music from her again for at least another year.

It reminds me of this quote from Venus X:

"I haven't met Shakira yet—she's on tour in Mexico. She's coming into the studio at the end of August and we'll start working together then, honing in on the music I gave her and deciding what she wants to use."

Oh, okay. I think you could be right. I wasn't sure if she was bringing music in or if he was bringing music in (or maybe both). Very cool news, though.


So, perhaps these next 2 weeks may be very busy for Shakira.

Wow, you know what, maybe there really is some legitimacy to that. Could she actually be interested in making another album so soon?!?!

And looking at Afrojack's track record, he seems to have a lot of history with Pitbull and David Guetta. And where we've heard that Shakira is looking to focus on a dance-centered album, I think it's highly possible that we'll see both of them in the studio with her in the future.

Without even hearing the songs, I can tell that the three of them would produce an incredible album ... one worthwhile for Epic Records to actually promote. ;)

Sounds interesting. They might colloborate well together. It would also be nice if she did some rock tunes and some danceable pop too. I agree-Pique needs to get out of there.

I was never really for the idea with Pharrell. Their two styles were just way too different to be converged. The only collab of them I liked remotely was Did It Again. I thought however with the help of Ferral her lyurics woudl not be clumsy for once but alas they were.

Her work with John Hill, on the other hand was great.
