After a long summer mourning the loss of her Glee co-star and real-life love Cory Monteith (Finn), Lea Michele (Rachel) is soldiering on and continuing work on some exciting projects of her own.

The singer-actress spent the weekend primping and posing while shooting the cover for her long-awaited solo album.

“So excited because today I’m shooting the cover for my album!” Lea tweeted yesterday, October 13. “Working with the amazing photographer Peggy Sirota! #Album.”

Lea’s solo album has been in the works for over a year now and we couldn’t be more excited that it seems to finally be coming to fruition. While the album’s release date has yet to be announced, Lea told E! News earlier this year that she’s nearly done with it.

“We have the album pretty much locked,” she told the site in June. “Everything is being mastered right now and we are just debating on what we want the first single to be.”

We can only hope that album’s release date is right around the corner if Lea is already working on the cover photos. In one photo, Lea wears a cute white mini that both shows of her long, toned legs and her tiny tummy. In another, she's wearing a printed crop top and black short shorts. The Glee star's figure looks remarkably slim, though that's not really anything new. Earlier this summer, Lea showed off her tiny figure during a bikini-filled beach vacation back at the very beginning of July. (And sadly, just days before her boyfriend, Cory, would unexpectedly pass away.)

But Lea seems committed to staying busy and working hard, even in such a difficult personal time. “Sneak peek of today’s #AlbumCoverShoot!” she tweeted alongside the photos of herself all dolled up.

“I'm so excited for u guys to hear my album,” Lea tweeted after sharing the pics. “It's so special to me. Im so grateful for u all. Thank u for giving me so much love & support.”
