Selena Gomez Went Completely Out Of Her 'Comfort Zone' For Revival

But she's ready to give you her perspective on things.

Selena Gomez may be celebrating her 23rd birthday, but Selenators are no doubt thanking the singer for their gift: the upcoming album Revival.

The "Good For You" singer announced on Tuesday that her album would be named Revival with the release date set for October 9. Selena has been teasing the album for several months, saying that this next chapter in her life will reveal the "TRUTH" to her fans.

"The album in general is my perspective on things -- it's not about one thing," Selena recently told MTV News. "I'm going to be 23, I've seen how the world works in a weird way. That moment in your life when you step back and you're like, 'What's going on? Am I happy? Are these people good for me? Why are these people doing that to other people?' Just discovering what life is, spirituality, so there's a little bit of all of that on the album."

It's been just over two years since Sel released her 2013 album, Stars Dance, and in that time she's been extremely inspired by her experiences -- "everything from kindness, to having faith and heartbreak and the passion of a relationship, being my own person" -- and because of those experiences she felt she wanted to share her story.

"I love buying an album and having a story told to me," she said. "Taylor [Swift] is awesome at that -- and I think when you're able to buy an album and follow a story, that's genuine," she said. "To me, that's more challenging than releasing a bunch of hits. That's what I wanted to do with this record."

And Selena will be the one telling this story this time around, as she has been very involved in the writing process for her second solo album, something that took a little getting used to.

"It was a big change. I went from having a lot of opinions to people being like, 'What do you want to do?'" she said. "And that was great, that was what I needed. It was almost pushing me out of my comfort zone."
