    Shakira has revealed her new album is self-titled and is due out on RCA on March 25.

    Check out her heartfelt Facebook post.

    Her full post is below, unedited.

    "When the time came to put a name to this album..." / "Cuando llegó la hora de buscarle un título a este disco..."

    "I'm so happy that I will soon be sharing my latest album with you all, something I've been working on for over two years now. The work on this album has spanned a very eventful time, with many ups and downs but ultimately, the happiest period in my life thus far, including the birth of my son. I've explored many different directions, worked with many different people, and written many, many demos before arriving at the finished product I will soon be presenting to you.

    When the time came to put a name to this album, I realized that it's not exactly a thematic album, though love is and always has been one of my main subjects and sources for inspiration. It's also not necessarily conceptual, as some of my albums have been in the past.

    In the end, what I realized is that throughout the course of creating this body of work, I learned a lot about myself. Though I didn't realize it at the time, all the directions I began exploring in the initial phases of recording were helping to pave a path for me of rediscovery. In the end I realized that I will always be a little bit of everything and I don't have to choose. I am sometimes extremely sensitive, sometimes upbeat, others dreamy and romantic, and even at times a little melodramatic. (Call it the Caribbean blood.) But always authentic and always sincere.

    Most importantly, I am enough. Imperfections and all. So what I am offering you now is just that.

    Shakira.

    Nothing more. A little bit of rock, a little bit of folk, a little reggae and naturally some dance--but as always, and above all, a lot of heart.

    I hope you enjoy.

    Shakira."

    (The new album, Shakira, is out March 25th)
