Shakira talked Wednesday about her new album which will be released in
October. The CD will be “fun with dance, disco and electronic sounds”.
Colombia’s superstar appeared at her press conference more mature, with a different styling and two and a half hours too late, local media reported.
Like Shakira’s new looks, her new CD will be different than anything else she did before. “It’s a different album, the rhythms […] are mainly electronic and dance. I still like to merge music from India and other cultures, also with references to the Carnival of Barranquilla,” Colombia’s biggest superstar told El Tiempo in an interview.
Shakira released the Spanish version of her new single “She Wolf” on 29 June which is “a reflection of [her] own liberty, as a woman of 32 years who feels the right to defend her wishes”, the singer explained. The song is also a bit feminist, she added. The launch of the English version will be in a week.
Colombia’s superstar launched Spanish version of “She Wolf” first to thank all Latinos for their support. In total, seven songs of her new CD will be in English and three in Spanish.
“Writing is a mystery for me, I don’t know how it happens”, Shakira confessed when she was asked about how she gets inspired. “It’s like the world of dreams, like when we dream the whole night and when we wake up, we don’t remember anything”.
Shakira also confessed that she “really” wants to be a mother. “Without marriage! The wolf is modern”, she said. “But now it’s not the time, maybe in one or two years.”
Shakira’s CD will be released in October. The journalists who heard the album at the press conference are sure that Shakira’s new work will be a success and that the Colombian singer will again conquer the nightclubs in the whole world.
