Latin music icon Selena passed away 27 years ago, but a new album from the “Queen of Cumbia” is tentatively scheduled for release in April, according to Abraham Quintanilla in an interview with Latin Groove News.


Quintanilla shared the announcement in a virtual interview with On The Record with Jose Rosario on March 10. The album will be released through Warner Music featuring 13 songs taken from the Q Productions vault produced by A.B. Quintanilla III, Selena’s brother.

Abraham Quintanilla commented, “What’s unique about is that not only is the music completely new arrangements but my son worked on Selena’s voice with the computers and if you listen to it, she sounds on this recording like she did right before she passed away.”

After almost three decades since Selena was murdered by her fan club president in 1995, fans continue to desire anything from Selena, including new music.

Abraham added, “What amazes me and my family is 26 years later the public still remembers Selena, you know they haven’t let go of her and they’re waiting for a project like this to come out and I know it will be well received by the public.”

Mr. Q also discussed his recently released memoir A Father’s Dream, new projects, and more with Jose Rosario Gonzalez, who translated the book for the Spanish version.
