Just days after she returned to the spotlight with a new pop anthem (yes, and?), Ariana Grande has announced details of her upcoming seventh studio album.

Grande shared the news on Instagram overnight, revealing three covers – one showing a blurry close-up of her face, another showing her posing with her hands (draped over in red lace gloves) arched over her head, and one more of her covering her eyes – alongside the album’s title, Eternal Sunshine, and its release date of March 8.

Eternal Sunshine follows up on Grande’s 2020 effort Positions, which sported hit singles like the title track, 34+35 and POV. In the interim, she linked up with The Weeknd for two remixes of his own tracks – Save Your Tears in 2021, then Die For You last year – and collaborated with Demi Lovato on the song Met Him Last Night in 2021.

Meanwhile, Grande has kept busy with her work on Universal’s big-screen adaptation of the Broadway musical Wicked, in which she’ll star as Glinda The Good. The film is set to land in cinemas in late November 2024.

In 2019, The Music named Thank U, Next one of the top albums of 2019, with writer Hannah Story stating: “Over the top of skittering, trap-influenced beats, Grande talks about needing space and the way intimacy is performed, imitated or conjured out of thin air. It’s an empowered attempt to tear back her post-break-up narrative from the mass media and instead celebrate her friends and inner strength.”
