Selena Gomez thinks fans will be surprised by her upcoming album.

The 26-year-old shared she's "relieved" the album is "finally done" during an appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon on Tuesday (11Jun19), and teased her new music has a more "soulful" sound to it.

"I've had such huge moments that happened in my life personally that (I wondered) how I was gonna capture that and how was I gonna actually feel good about what I was saying," she shared. "There's always gonna be a sense of strong pop in my music, but I definitely explored more with electric guitar, a lot of more soulful tracks underneath."

Selena's new album will be her first since 2015's Revival, and the star confessed she has a "more emotional connection" to her new music than her past offerings.

"I love everything I get to do and be a part of, but specifically something that connects with people on an emotional level is my favourite," she added.

Selena's new album is expected to be released later this year.
