Lea Michele is shooting her first music video for her upcoming album!
And she made sure to give fans a sneak peek of the set before the production kicked off Sunday.
“SO EXCITED SHOOTING MY VERY FIRST MUSIC VIDEO TODAY FOR THE FIRST ALBUM SINGLE!,” she tweeted, along with a couple of photos of scenes from the set.
The 27-year-old Glee star has yet to reveal when her album will be released, but she did recently dish to Elle regarding a song she recorded about Cory Monteith that will be on it called “You’re Mine.”
“The album was done, and the label said, ‘Do you want to add anything?’ I was like, ‘I might regret it if I don’t,’” Michele told the mag.
“It makes me so happy, this song,” she continued. “It makes me think so much of Cory. It was ours. When I think if him, I play this.”
Are you excited for Lea’s album?

Want to spend Halloween with Lea Michele?! You’re in luck!
The Glee star is set to spend the spooky holiday with Top Chef as she serves as the show’s special guest on Wednesday, Oct. 30. And yes, she shows up in costume and brings along a familiar face: Andy Cohen!
Michele, who recently shot the cover for her new solo album, will join judges Padma Lakshmi and Tom Colicchio on the Bravo reality hit’s Halloween-themed affair, which also happens to be the franchise’s 150th episode(!), to present the contestants with quite the frightening challenge and we’ve got an exclusive sneak peek at her in action!
In the episode, the chef’testants are tasked with catering a Halloween bash for Michele, who definitely gets into the holiday spirit by requesting the chefs prepare spook-tacular fare! The only catch? The food must be vegetarian-friendly.
And stopping by Michele’s monster bash is none other than Watch What Happens Live host Cohen, who had a few questions for Top Chef’s special guest, including what a Top Chef musical episode would look like. “It would be ‘Hungry Like a Wolf!’” she says with a big laugh.
How cute is she?! She also gives Cohen a little sass when he asks his next question, which you’ll have to watch our exclusive sneak peek above to enjoy!
Top Chef airs Wednesday at 10 p.m. on Bravo.

Big thanks to Penelope for the scans!
On her personal style:
“I would say it’s very relaxed and simple: jeans, flats and a leather jacket. Lately, I have mixed the Californian style with the dark side of New York. I would wear black every day if I could. For red carpets I love experimenting.”
On her fave basic pieces:
“Definitely my Fiorentini + Baker motorcycle boots and myGivenchy bag.”
On her role as a L’Oreal spokesmodel:
“I had been a fan of L’Oreal since I was a little girl. I remember I had so many products in my house and everyone knew how important it was for me to work with them. Honestly, I am a real fan of their cosmetics, so being part of the L’Oreal family is amazing. It’s so nice to be part of a company that you truly believe in, so this way you can tell people how much you love their products.”
On her fave designers:
“I have so many favorite designers: Zac Posen, Oscar de la Renta, Versace and Stella McCartney.”
On her fashion icons:
“I think that is one of the hardest questions because they are so many, but I have always looked up to Penelope Cruz, she always looks beautiful, classy and sophisticated. I probably would say that she is one of the most beautiful women in the world.”
