It's #NewMusicFriday and Lizzo has announced a new album.
The 33-year-old pop legend - who achieved global stardom with her third studio album and major-label debut 'Cuz I Love You' back in 2019 - is set to release her fourth record 'Special' later in July.
The Grammy Award-winning singer made the announcement just hours after releasing the music video for the lead single and brand new song 'About Damn Time'. She claimed that both the new song and album could "lead to so many conversations" in a post-pandemic world as she proclaimed that she had made the "song of the summer."
Alongside an image of the black-and-white album cover, Lizzo wrote on Instagram: "SPECIAL. THE ALBUM. JULY 15."
Speaking to Zane Lowe on 'New Music Daily' on Apple Music 1, she said: "I think that the music really is going to speak for itself. I'm writing songs about love from every direction, and I hope that I can turn a little bit of the fear that's been running rampant in this world, energetically into love. That's the point. I had a lot of fear, and I had to do the work on myself, and this music is some of that work in turning that fear into love."
'Special' is set to drop on July 15, 2022.
