Shakira to release her next album with Sony Music Entertainment

The Latin superstar is currently in the studio working on the project

Multi-platinum, Grammy Award-winning, singer/songwriter, philanthropist, and global recording artist Shakira has announced that she will be releasing her next album through Sony Music Entertainment and is her first with RCA. The brand new album will be released on RCA/Sony Latin Iberia due out early 2014, with the album’s first single targeted for release in January.

Shakira is currently in the studio working on her forthcoming album, following her stint as a coach on NBC’s The Voice on the show’s most highly rated season yet. Shakira is set to reclaim the coach throne in the spring season of 2014.

Doug Morris, CEO of Sony Music Entertainment, comments, “Shakira is a worldwide superstar and an amazing talent. I’m thrilled that she’ll be remaining with the Sony Music family. It was a tough battle and the competition was enormous. Good luck, Shak!”

“Shakira is a unique, brilliant artist. She spreads the spirit of Latin culture around the world,” states Afo Verde, Chairman and CEO for Sony’s Latin Region, Spain and Portugal. “It is an honor and a privilege to work with her, and together with our colleagues from RCA, to continue bringing her music to fans around the world.”

Peter Edge, CEO, RCA Records, states “Shakira is an enormously talented artist and human being with incredible songwriting skills, a unique and unmatched vocal style and sensational star quality. RCA partnering with Sony Latin Iberia will greatly strengthen our ability to reach new fans and embrace her already massive worldwide appeal.”
