Shakira Writing Next Album

Live DVD/CD package due at the end of the month

By |

Shakira is writing songs for her next album, the follow-up to 2001's English-language breakthrough Laundry Service. An October or November release is being targeted for the new set of songs.

In the meantime, the Colombian superstar is offering Live and Off the Record on March 30th, an audio/visual documentation of last year's Tour of the Mongoose to tide fans over. The set will be packaged as a two-and-a-half-hour DVD with a ten-song bonus CD. The DVD consists of ninety minutes of Mongoose material, with tracks dating back to her 1996 debut Pies Descalzos ("Estoy Aqui"). Laundry Service and its predecessor, 1998's Donde Estan los Ladrones?, are best represented with eight and five songs on the DVD, respectively. Both the DVD and CD include Shakira's previously unreleased cover of AC/DC's "Back in Black."

The DVD will also include behind-the-scenes material from tour stops including Paris, London, Madrid, New York, Mexico and Bogota.
