Abraham Quintanilla announces new Selena Music coming in April




Twenty-seven years after the tragic death of Selena, her family announced the release of a new album. In a video interview with Latin Groove News last week, Abraham Quintanilla Jr., the singer’s father said it would be released on April 27 as part of a family effort. 

The album would feature 13 songs, with new arrangements by her brother A.B., and artwork by her sister, Suzette. The newly released songs are all part of the catalog belonging to the family’s record company, Q Productions.

“What amazes me and Suzette, my family, A.B., is that 26 years later and the public still remembers Selena,” Quintanilla said in the interview, “They haven’t let go of her. They’re waiting for a project like this to come out, and I know it will be well received by the public.”

The first song on the new album is one Selena recorded when she was just 13 years old. Selena’s brother was able to digitally update her voice to sound as she did before her death in 1995, according to her father.

“My son worked on Selena’s voice with the computers, and if you listen to it, she sounds on [the] recordings like she did right before she passed away,” he said.

March 31 will mark the 27th anniversary of Selena’s tragic death. Up to this day, fans continue celebrating her music and her family makes an effort to keep her memory alive. They collaborated with a Netflix show about Selena’s rise to fame, titled “Selena: The Series,” released last year, and they also released her unfinished songs in 2015. 

Selena was killed about two weeks before her 24th birthday, which would have been April 16, 1995. A native of Texas, Selena was a Grammy Award-winning Tejano superstar who was shot and killed by her fan club’s president, Yolanda Saldivar.
