Loreen surprised fans earlier this week by announcing her new single ‘Body’ which has now been released worldwide on all major streaming & download services. This morning, she excited fans even further by confirming the news that her new album is ready and will be released on Friday 25th August.
Earlier this year, during her third Melodifestivalen stint, Loreen teased fans with a Facebook live stream from one of the album’s recording sessions.
Hinting at a two-part release?
Many Fans have speculated that the new album will in fact be a two-part release, with the second half possibly dropping at the end of the year. This is due to Loreen’s recent Facebook post where she hints “I can’t wait to show you part one… #NUDE“. If this is the case, Loreen follows a host of artists who have used the same formula to showcase new music. In 2011, Eric Saade released both ‘Saade Vol. 1‘ & Saade Vol.2‘ within months of each other.
Whilst a Tracklist for ‘NUDE’ is yet to be released, it will no doubt include Loreen’s Melodifestivalen 2017 entry ‘Statements‘ as well as new single ‘Body‘.
The album will serve as the follow up to her 2012 debut ‘Heal’ which reached platinum status in Sweden, selling over 40,000 copies. It also reached the top 10 in Finland, Estonia and Switzerland and peaked inside the top 20 in Denmark, Netherlands and Germany.
