In an interview with Latin Groove News, Abraham Quintanilla stated that the new album will be released next month and contains 13 songs as well as A.B. Quintanilla was Selena's brother and worked on the album.
He said that Selena had been missing for 26 years. It's incredible how quickly time flies... What amazes Suzette and my family, A.B. is that 26 years later, the public still remembers Selena. They won't let her go. They are waiting for a project such as this to be released, and I know the public will love it."
Quintanilla stated that there is a unique element to the album. Selena's 13-year-old recordings were digitally remastered so they sound like she is 23 years old. This is the age Selena was when she died in 1995.
He said that Selena was a voice recording made by my son using the computers.
Quintanilla said that the only thing holding up is the artwork to be paired with it. He said that Selena's sister Suzette Quintanilla will play a part in this aspect of the project.
CBS News reached Warner Music Group for comment but didn't hear back immediately.
The 27th anniversary of Selena’s death is March 31. She was the winner of the best Mexican-American album Grammy for her song "Live", and she had many hits in the U.S., and was about to enter the English-language pop market when Yolanda Saldivar murdered her. Saldivar is currently serving a life sentence.
Selena is still very popular and her music continues its impact across North and South America. Her Spotify listener count is more than 6,000,000 per month and her rise in fame was documented in a Netflix series that was released in 2020.
