Jennifer Hudson is looking ferociously confident and lovely on the album cover to her forthcoming "JHUD."

The Academy Award-winning singer has set a date for the set, due now on Sept. 23."JHUD" is her third studio album, after her 2008 self-titled and 2011's "I Remember Me." Both of those topped out at No. 2 on The Billboard 200 album sales charts.

Three songs are already available to spin: "It's Your World" featuring R. Kelly, "Walk It Out" featuring and produced by Timbaland, and "I Can't Describe (The Way I Feel)" guesting T.I. and produced by Pharrell. Sounds like it will be a guest-heavy endeavor, with more producers and featured artists to be announced.

Check out all three songs below. Have a favorite so far?
