After nearly a year and a half of time away from the recording studio, Selena Gomez is back, and set to release an album in March 2013!

The news was announced yesterday by Ryan Seacrest via Twitter! Selena told Ryan the news while assisting in the opening of Seacrest Studios, at the Children’s Medical Center of Dallas, near Selena’s home town.

Selena’s last album, “When The Sun Goes Down,” was released last June. In the year and a half away from the studio, she’s been focusing on her acting in films including the recent animated film, “Hotel Transylvania!”

I can’t wait for the new release! What do you gals think of the development?
