Rihanna - Rihanna to release concept album based on DreamWorks animation

Rihanna is working on a concept album for new animated film 'Home'.

The superstar's next record will be entirely inspired by the new 3D DreamWorks Animation movie, in which she voices a teenager called Gratuity 'Tip' Tucci.

Jeffrey Katzenberg, CEO of DreamWorks Animation, revealed the news during the company's quarterly earnings announcement, explaining that Rihanna will perform new songs.

While no further details have been confirmed, the release is likely to coincide with the film - based on author Adam Rex's 2007 children's book 'The True Meaning of Smekday' - hitting cinemas this November.

The album will be Rihanna's first since 2012's 'Unapologetic', and a welcome return from the 26-year-old star, who released a new record every single year from 2009 until 2012.

Despite taking a year off in 2013, the hardworking singer remained in the charts by collaborating with Eminem's smash hit 'Monster' from his album 'The Marshall Mathers LP 2' and more recently with Shakira on 'Can't Remember to Forget You'.

It was announced earlier this week that Rihanna and Eminem were joining forces for a mini US tour this summer, performing in New York, Los Angeles and Detroit in August.
