Enrique: I can't relax

Enrique Iglesias

Enrique Iglesias would get bored if he took a break from work.

The 38-year-old singer's tenth studio album Sex + Love is due to hit stores next month and is the follow up to 2010's Euphoria. Due to the four-year gap between releases many have been asking Enrique what he's been up to, which he finds a little peeving.

"I've been just touring. People always ask me that, they go, 'Why did you take three years or four years to put out one album?' It wasn't really a break, I wish I'd taken one!" he laughed to British magazine Heat. "Actually I don't wish that because I'd go nuts, so I have to keep on going. I've been touring around the world."

The star is proud of his upcoming record and thinks it'll have broad appeal. It includes a track featuring Kylie Minogue, who he calls a "sweetie" and a dream to work with.

"The new album [Sex + Love] is extremely reflective. I wanted to call it that because it's two words that are so close together, yet can be so far apart. At the end of the day, it's something we can all emotionally relate to," he said.

Much has been made of the LP's single I'm a Freak, which features Pitbull. The promo for the song contains a lot of nudity, with Enrique admitting it was fun to shoot.

"It's the first time I've made a video where the director goes, 'I just wanna throw a party.' Just give people alcohol and let them have fun. It was at his friend's house; I felt sorry for the house," he said.

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Cancer:

Your career has been undergoing some dramatic changes. At long last, you'll have a chance to slow down and catch your breath. Getting used to a new set of responsibilities will take time and patience. Try not to be hard on yourself when you struggle with unfamiliar concepts. Nobody expects perfection, especially at this stage of the game. The more gentle you are with yourself, the easier it will be to master this role. If you're out of work, take this opportunity to rest and reflect on future possibilities.More
