The Album Is Almost Here

It feels like forever since Lea Michele announced her plans to record an album, so it's pretty exciting to see that things are finally starting to come together with its production. OK, so in reality, it's been a little over a year, but come on — that's a lifetime on the Internet, and millennials have the attention spans of two-year-olds. But, no matter: The album is almost here, and the first music video is apparently even in the works. Via her Instagram, Lea Michele shared a few behind-the-scenes pics from the music video, as well as the final recording session for the album itself.

As for Michele, she seems excited, if her captions are any indication: "SO EXCITED SHOOTING MY VERY FIRST MUSIC VIDEO TODAY FOR THE FIRST ALBUM SINGLE!" It's hard to tell what the music video will actually involve other than a dark room and Michele wearing lots of black eyeliner, but so far, so good! Her make-up looks good, at least — and pretty similar to the look she donned for the cover of her album.

You can check out all the images below, or head on over to Michele's Instagram. Though a release date hasn't been confirmed as of yet, the album is expected to drop early next year.
