Ariana Grande's new album is called Sweetener, confirms release date and track titles

Ari's new record is dropping this summer.

Ariana Grande has confirmed the title and release date of her new album.

Ari's fourth album is titled Sweetener, and will be released on August 17. The news was confirmed by the star herself during an appearance on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon last night (May 1).

"It’s kind of about bringing light to a situation or to someone’s life, or about somebody that brings light to your life, or sweetening the situation,” Ariana said of the album title.

The Floridian also explained that she is doing "something special" on the 20th of each month in the run-up to the album, before saying: "It's only like three 20ths until the big thing... aah, I just told you when it is", before announcing she will perform at the 2018 Billboard Awards on May 20.

In addition to performing her UK Number 2 hit No Tears Left To Cry, Ariana also confirmed some song titles that will feature on Sweetener, including the already-announced R.E.M plus God Is A Woman, The Light Is Coming, and the album's opener, Raindrops.
