After months of teaser photos from the studio and a string of singles, including the effortlessly slinky worldwide smash "Havana," Camila Cabello has finally announced the final details of her upcoming debut album, her first full solo effort since departing Fifth Harmony. The artist decided to change the name of her first album from The Hurting. The Healing. The Loving. to simply Camilawhich will be released to the world on January 12.

"I decided to call it by my name, because this is where this chapter in my life ended," Camila explained about the album title change in an Instagram post. "It started with somebody else's story, it ended with me finding my way back to myself." The artist also unveiled the striking album cover, in which she simply poses in a floral dress surrounded by authentic sketches and vintage furniture. It gives an aura that better reflects Camila's confident image and heritage prominent in "Havana."

The star also announced that two tracks from the album, "Never Be the Same" and "Real Friends," will be released on Friday alongside the album pre-order. Given the diverse sounds of "Crying in the Club," "OMG," and "Havana," we could be in for anything. Check out the album cover and her full statement below.
