Enrique Iglesias’ upcoming album Final is set to release on September 17, and he recently revealed that it might be the last album of his career.
Enrique Vows to Never Stop Making Music
The Spanish singer-songwriter revealed the news to Ricky Martin and Sebastián Yatra and their millions of followers on Instagram. They held a live chat promoting their upcoming tour; set to kick off later this month across the United States and Canada. A list of dates and tickets can be found here.
“It might be my final album,” the hitmaker shared. “It’s not something that I have been thinking about for the past few months. It’s something that I have been thinking about for the past few years. There’s going to be Vol. 1 and Vol. 2, but they’re final. I’m in that moment in my life. That chapter in my life, where I think it’s the right time to put it out. I’ve been thinking about this since 2015.”
Although it might be his last album, Iglesias reassured fans that it doesn’t mean he’ll stop making music. He explained, “I’m never going to stop writing songs because I love writing songs, but I’m going to do it in a different way – meaning they don’t necessarily have to be packaged as an album – so this project to me is important.”
Touring is Becoming Tough for the Hitmaker
Enrique previously admitted that touring has been much more challenging for him over recent years. The pop star – who has been in a relationship with former tennis star Anna Kournikova since 2001 – revealed he now struggles to deal with the physical rigors of touring and performing.
He explained, “The first two weeks of touring are tough on me because I notice it in my bones, in my joints, it’s ‘Whoa’. But my doctor says I’m crazy because I never even stretched or anything. I was always very athletic as a kid, but I know the day will come when I have to warm up and stretch.”
Final Vol. 1 will be Iglesias’ 11th studio album and will follow 2014’s Sex and Love, which peaked at No. 1 on Billboard’s Top Latin Albums chart.
