Everything We Know About Ariana Grande's New Album

EVERYTHING YOU NEED TO KNOW AHEAD OF ARIANA GRANDE'S ALBUM PRESALE

If you've been following Ariana Grande's journey for a while you'll know that she's been up the shit for a while- dealing with her substance-abusing ex, Mac Miller and most recently combating PTSD from the Manchester bombing. Ari took time away from social media so nobody can say how she actually handled everything, so this album could be the way to get a real insight to her innermost emotions.

Here's what we know so far about the album.

NAME OF THE ALBUM

The album is called 'Sweetener'.

When Ariana appeared on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, she said that 'Sweetener' is "about bringing light to a situation, or to someone's life, or somebody else who brings light to your life, or sweetening the situation".


RELEASE DATE

'Sweetener' will be released on 20th July 2018. 

The presale date is 20th of June 2018, and you'll also get an album track 'The Light is Coming' ahead of the release date.
