Rihanna announces new album 'Unapologetic'
Rihanna has unveiled details of her new album, which will be titled 'Unapologetic'.

The singer will release her seventh LP on November 19. It follows the release of the track 'Diamonds' last month (September 26) – which you can listen to below.

'Diamonds' was written by Sia and produced by Benny Bianco, and marks a new, more mid-paced direction following the heavy Euro-dance of previous album 'Talk That Talk'.

Speaking about the track, Rihanna said that it is a "happy and hippy" record, adding that, "It gives me such a great feeling when I listen to it. The lyrics are very hopeful and positive, but it's about love and the gears are a little different from what people would expect. I'm excited to surprise them sonically."

The news about the new album was accidentally leaked by her label Def Jam's French wing last month. The label had to hastily delete their tweet breaking news of the record and issue a statement saying news on the album would be release later.
