Olivia Rodrigo confirmed she'll be releasing new music in 2023

Olivia Rodrigo confirmed she'll be releasing new music in 2023.

It’s been nearly two years since Olivia Rodrigo dropped her debut album Sour, and now her army of fans has reason to suspect new music is finally on the way from their queen.

The speculation arose Wednesday (Nov. 30) when the singer sent a special video message to her top fans as part of this year’s Spotify Wrapped. “Hey, it’s Olivia! I just wanted to say thank you so much for listening to my music this year,” she said in the fan-captured clip. “I really, truly couldn’t be more grateful and I’m so excited for next year, and all of the new things and new music that 2023 will bring. So I’m sending so much love your way and thank you again! Bye!”Rodrigo’s first album shot to No. 1 all over the world upon its May 2021 release and contained the smash singles “Drivers License,” “Deja Vu,” “Good 4 U,” “Brutal” and “Traitor,” as well as fan-favorite cuts like “1 Step Forward, 3 Steps Back,” “Happier” and “Jealousy, Jealousy.”

Plenty has happened in the Disney star’s life since she unveiled Sour, though. She’s embarked on her first headlining tour across North America and Europe, starred in season 3 of High School Musical: The Musical: The Series, and premiered both her concert film Sour Prom and Disney+ documentary Driving Home 2 U (A Sour Film). Oh, and she also picked up her first trio of Grammy Awards at the 2022 ceremony for best new artist, best pop vocal album and best pop solo performance.

Most recently, Rodrigo honored Carly Simon with a performance of “You’re So Vain” at the ’70s icon’s induction into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame as part of the class of 2022 and interviewed former co-star Jenna Ortega about her starring role in Netflix’s Wednesday.

Olivia Rodrigo’s Sour was the pop hit that no one saw coming. With its colossal lead single “Drivers License,” the singer’s 2021 debut album catapulted her to massive success, earning her several Grammys, a sold-out headlining tour, and a feverishly loyal fanbase. Naturally, the big question was when the followup to the album would finally arrive. Now, it seems the answer could be much sooner rather than later, according to the star herself.

As part of Spotify’s 2022 Wrapped campaign, over 40,000 artists, including Rodrigo, recorded personalized “thank you” messages to send to their top listeners. Most used that time to give their appreciation and thanks, and Rodrigo did, too, but she also seemed to drop a sly hint as to what’s coming up in 2023 by giving the camera a knowing glance at the end.

“I just wanted to say thank you so much for listening to my music this year,” her video begins. “I really truly couldn’t be more grateful, and I’m so excited for next year and all of the new things and new music that 2023 will bring,” she adds with a very suspicious look off-camera. Tell us more, Olivia!

The timing does fit for Rodrigo to have a new album out in 2023, given that Sour was released in May of 2021. Beyond her Wrapped video, Interscope Records recently reposted photos from a recent shoot Rodrigo was involved in, fueling more speculation among her fans that new music from the songwriter is forthcoming.

It’s no secret Rodrigo has been busy at work on the highly anticipated followup to her massive debut record. In an interview with Billboard earlier this year, she revealed that she already has an album title selected and several songs written. “I have a title for my next album and a few songs. It’s really exciting to think about the next world that’s coming up for me,” she said at the time. “I just love writing songs. I’m trying not to put too much pressure on myself. [I want to] just sort of explore and have fun right now.”
