New music from Ciara is on the way! Speaking with ABC Audio, the R&B singer teases, “All I gotta say is I’ve been cooking up some stuff and I can’t wait to share it with the world.”

It’s been almost three years since fans were blessed with Ciara’s last studio album, Beauty Marks, which featured the hit track “Level Up.” In the time since, she says she’s just been “enjoying life” with her “babies,” seven-year-old Future, four-year-old Sienna, and one-year-old Win. 

“I think it’s so important to pause and do that,” Ciara shares, adding, “It’s been really amazing building out businesses this past year but my heart is always with the creativity as well.” 

“I can’t wait to share with the fans what I’ve been working on and its about that time. So sometime soon should be the mark,” she promises. 

Although Ciara didn’t share an exact release date for her new tunes, the “Goodies” singer, who is co-hosting Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rocking’ Eve with Ryan Seacrest for the fifth time, shared that viewers can expect “a little something-something” from her during the show. 

“It’s gonna be a lot of energy,” she says of the annual event. “There’s gonna be that good nostalgic feeling that’s gonna happen at points mixed with some also cool energy, new energy.”

Dick Clark’s New Year’s Rocking Eve airs live December 31 at 8 p.m. ET/PT on ABC.
