After months of anticipation, Lovato confirmed that she’s going to release her new music sometime in 2021, and we couldn’t be more excited about it.
“The tea is … I am releasing an album and a documentary next year,” the brunette beauty said during an appearance on the “(Re)Session” podcast in December 2020. “I’ve been working on this album since 2018 and my life has taken so many twists and turns since then, and it’s changed the direction, the sound, the story … I’m really excited to release all of this new music.”
As fans know, Bieber just released an album, called Changes, in February 2020. But get this — he’s already working on his next LP! He told his fans during an Instagram Live, “I’m going to make another [album] while I’m in quarantine. There’s nothing else to do. I will.” Plus, in July 2020, his manager, Scooter Braun, teased his upcoming tunes on Twitter.

“There’s a certain energy in that song, in its delivery, in its attitude, that I want to recreate,” he explained. “People are struggling at the moment, so I want to create a raucous, exciting atmosphere in my live show, not a somber, thoughtful one. I’m very, very excited. I had basically penciled down a plan before corona took over our lives. And now it’s kind of given me a little bit of time to really get into what I want to say and what I want things to sound like.”

When asked if he had any plans to drop a new album next year, Niall Horan told Today FM in December 2020 that he had been working on some music lately, but that he wasn’t satisfied with it yet. But he added that if he did make a song he loved, he would definitely release it.
“I suppose, if I come across something good I’d, obviously, I like to get it out,” he shared.
He also told Express in November 2020, “I’d like to release stuff next year, I doubt it would be this year, and just kind of writing some bits getting in the studio when I can here.”
As for Harry Styles, he said he had plans to get back in the studio while accepting Variety‘s Hitmaker of the Year Award in December 2020. Liam Payne also told fans during an Instagram Live in the same month that he is going “return with new music later in 2021.”

I have no idea what will come next. I have no idea about a lot of things these days and so I’ve clung to the one thing that keeps me connected to you all. That thing always has and always will be music. And may it continue, evermore. evermore is out now: https://t.co/QYMUTL0IAj pic.twitter.com/tlSmahDkBi— Taylor Swift (@taylorswift13) December 11, 2020
Plus, fans were also quick to notice that the “Lover” songstress released three matching sweaters in three different colors — one in black and white, which went with Folklore‘s album cover, one in red and white, which went with Evermore‘s album cover, and one in green and white, leading fans to wonder if it’ll go with her next album cover. We guess we’ll have to wait and see.

Billie Eilish‘s second studio album is almost here! Unfortunately, it doesn’t have an official release date just yet, but the singer did reveal during a recent interview that it’s going to be “completely different” from the music we’re used to from her. The musician explained that because of the coronavirus quarantine, it changed many things about the music and its sound.
“I mean, we would have made something, but it would have been completely different [if we weren’t in quarantine]. It’s not like we’re making songs about quarantine, we’re just in a different mindset than we would be otherwise,” she explained. “And that’s just how everything is. It’s the butterfly effect. It’s like if you hadn’t done this three years ago, maybe you wouldn’t be doing this three years later. It’s just the way that it is. At the same time, this is the most time off I’ve ever had in my life, first of all. And especially since this all started like five years ago. So it’s been a blessing, huge blessing and a curse, but I’m really, really happy that we’ve been able to make the things that we’re making. And I can’t wait for you to hear this s**t. I can’t wait to have the world hear. I’m very excited and hopeful for the future.”
Camila Cabello revealed via Instagram in August 2020, that she was working on her new music!
“Sending so much love to everyone. Been writing a lot of new music and it’s coming from a really pure place,” she wrote. “Reminding myself everyday that life is now; and not in yesterday or tomorrow. let’s be extra gentle, soft, and kind to ourselves and others today.”

“I can’t say when I’m going to drop, but I am very aggressively working on music,” she said. “I don’t want my albums to feel like themes. There are no rules. There’s no format. There’s just good music, and if I feel it, I’m putting it out. I feel like I have no boundaries. I’ve done everything – I’ve done all the hits, I’ve tried every genre – now I’m just, I’m wide open. I can make anything that I want.”
The singer also told Entertainment Tonight, “I am always working on music. I am always working on music and when I am ready to put it out in the way that I feel fit, it’s gonna come out. And you’re not going to be disappointed when it happens. It’s going to be worth it. I’m not just gonna put it out just because people are waiting. It’s taken this long, I’m gonna make it worth it.”
Although Adele commented on Instagram that she had “no idea” when he new music was going to come out, a source recently told People Magazine, “She is definitely getting ready both mentally and physically to promote new music. It seems it will happen later this year. She talks about last year as a very difficult year, and she’s said in the past that creating new music is almost like therapy. You can tell that she is ready to share with her fans.”
Why Don’t We
Why Don’t We’s new album, The Good Times and the Bad Ones, is coming out on January 15, 2021! And get this — they wrote all the songs themselves.

“How many different types of fans does he have? How many songs is he going to give you of each type, so that you’re satisfied with this offering? He’s trying to deliver for a lot of different people.” he said. “I think that’s the predicament we find ourselves in, which is trying to make music for everyone and to make sure all the different types of fans are satisfied.”
