A post shared by Selena Gomez (@selenagomez) on

‪”Can’t believe I’m revealing the art and title for my new album RARE, out January 10th. It’s the most honest music I’ve ever made and I can’t wait for you to hear my heart. 🖤 You can preorder RARE now,” the “Lose You To Love Me” singer added.

Track titles and featured artists

But, Gomez didn’t just reveal the name of her new album. She also shared the track titles via an extended trailer which she posted to her YouTube page. Though the official tracklist has not yet been released, the Revival artist did reveal that “Look At Her Now” is the third track on Rare while “Lose You To Love Me” sits right behind it as the fourth track.

In addition to the previously released singles, Rare will feature the following songs: “Rare” (which is the title track), “Dance Again”, “Ring”, “Vulnerable”, “People You Know”, “Let Me Get Me”, “Crowded Feat. 6Lack”, “Kinda Crazy”, “Fun”, “Cut You Off”, and “A Sweeter Place Feat. Kid Cudi”.

Overall sound

Clearly Gomez will be exploring new genres of music in this new album given the artists she chose to collaborate with. 6lack is both a singer and rapper from Atlanta Georgia, and Kid Cudi is a very well-known and respected singer and rapper from Cleveland, Ohio. Some of Gomez’s most popular songs have come from unexpected collaborations. A good example of this would be her song “Good For You Feat. ASAP Rocky”.

Rare

Gomez has also shared that she would describe a lot of the songs on Rare as soulful pop. “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. It just hit in that world. It’s mellow.” the 27-year-old shared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon. We’re excited to hear what Gomez has been up to throughout the last few years. Rare is available for pre-order now and releases January 10, 2020.
