Ariana Grande Discusses New Album Sweetener

Ariana Grande, one of the cover stars for The Fader’s upcoming Summer Music Issue, has shared details on her next album, Sweetener, due out in July. Grande says fans can expect her fourth studio album to be more message-driven than her previous releases. “I’ve always just been like a shiny, singing, 5-6-7- 8, thing. But now it’s like, ‘OK . issa bop – but issa message. Issa bop but also has chunks of my soul in it,” she told The Fader. Grande spoke on the emotionality of the tracks and some of the album’s “trap beat” production, which is evident on the album’s first single “No Tears Left to Cry.” She worked with Pharrell Williams to take her music in this newer direction, revealing that she cried many times during the writing sessions. “There’s definitely some crying-on the-dance floor stuff on this one,” Grande said. Besides sharing details of her upcoming album, the pop star also spoke about life after the Manchester bombing, and how her fans encourage her to be vulnerable, in the interview.
