Rosalía has announced that she will release a new single this Friday (February 4), and shared the artwork for her forthcoming album ‘MOTOMAMI’.

There is no firm release date yet for ‘MOTOMAMI’, which follows Rosalía‘s 2018 album ‘El Mal Querer’, but it’s widely expected to land in the first half of this year after significant teasing.

“Omg here you have the cover of MOTOMAMI and guess what new song is coming this Fridayyyy,” the Spanish pop star wrote on social media to reveal the artwork and new song details.

The artwork pictures Rosalía nude, wearing just a motorcycle helmet, while album title ‘MOTOMAMI’ is spray-painted in front of her.

Last month, Rosalía previewed two new tracks on TikTok called ‘Candy’ and ‘Hentai’. It comes after she shared a preview of ‘Candy’ on December 31, in which she mouths the track padded with snares and twinkling bells, also sharing a collage of photos from 2021.

They are the latest songs to be teased by the singer, having also shared a preview of another song, ‘Soako’, in December.  The singer-songwriter also collaborated with The Weeknd in November for single ‘La Fama’.

In Rolling Stone en Español’s inaugural cover issue, Diego Ortiz spoke about the artist’s ‘lyrical, rhythmic, and sonic experimentation’ on the new album. “She can be sweet, warm, and innovative like Lorde on ‘Pure Heroine’ or rude and raw like Nine Inch Nails on ‘The Downward Spiral’. 

He continued: “Across the album, Rosalía over-saturates and plays with her voice, pushing it to the limit without hesitation, deconstructing it to create samples and sounds that intertwine with the rhythm – if that’s what you can call the syncopated, out-of-time percussion that fires out according to the progression of each song.”

He added that the singer “rethinks structure entirely”, explaining that the music is “disharmonious and asymmetric”, making it one of the album’s most exciting qualities.

Rosalía added that she wanted to explore themes of “transformation, sexuality, heartbreak, celebration, spirituality” on the new album, along with “everyday things” and “self-respect”.
