Selena Quintanilla’s Family Announces Release Of New Music

In an interview with ABC News, the family of Selena Quintanilla-Perez announced the release of ‘Moonchild Mixes,’ a collection of songs featuring digital alternations of vocals the late singer recorded as a teenager. The album is set to come out Aug. 26 through Warner Music Latina. The first single is a new version of “Como Te Quiero Yo A Ti” which has already been released on music streaming platforms. 

The Quintanilla family said in their announcement  that they hope the release of this new album will inspire a younger generation. 

“Como Te Quiero Yo a Ti” was first released in 1987 as part of Selena’s sixth studio album ‘Preciosa.’ In 2004 a re-recorded version of the track was shared on a compilation on ‘Momentos Intimos’ after the singer’s death. Her new album, ‘Moonchild Mixes’ also features 10 previously unheard of recordings made when the singer was between 13 and 16 years old. The family told ABC news that they “cleaned” and “re-timed” Selena’s vocals, pitching her voice down to make her “sound a little bit more mature.” 

“What we are doing is honoring her memory, her legacy,” he said. “We’re still going to do what we want with our music, with our sister, with our band.” 

It’s been 27 years since the tragic death of the Tejano singer. SSelena was shot and killed by her former manager and friend Yolanda Saldivar in 1995. She was just 23 years old and at the peak of her career. 

Although Selena is no longer with us, her legacy continues to live on within each passing generation. 

Speaking of this new album, Suzette Quintanilla, Selena’s sister said that “it truly feels like she went into the studio again and recorded it.” 

“It’s pretty incredible,” she added on.
