It's been a little more than five years since former pop princess Jessica Simpson released an album. Busy promoting her billion-dollar fashion line, being a mom and posting racy photos on Instagram, it seemed like Jessica would never again grace the pop world with her "irresistible" vocals. Much to our surprise Jessica has let it slip she's working on new material!

While walking the Teen Vogue Fashion University -- where Jessica was the Dean Speaker -- the singer casually revealed to Extra that she's working on a new album. In case you don't remember, Jessica's last album was Happy Christmas, a themed compilation true to its name, released way back in 2009. Since then Jessica has been working a more fashion-oriented crowd with her billion-dollar fashion label, the Jessica Simpson Collection. Jessica told Extra, "I have a recording studio in my house so I can be around my babies as well ... and they might try and sing over me." Adorable!

Don't worry Jessica Simpson shoe-lovers, the singer swears she not done with fashion. "Fashion will always be a part of who I am," Jessica tells Extra, "If I'm not wearing a good outfit, I can't sing a good song."

It's been so long we aren't really sure what to expect from Jessica, but we're excited to see how this plays out. In the meantime, it might be a good idea to re-watch the video for "Where You Are" -- which features a weird merry-go-round scene and Jessica's ex-hubby Nick Lachey -- or watch reruns of Newlyweds.
