New Ariana Grande LP Fuses House + R&B

In a statement from her record label, Ariana Grande‘s new album ‘Eternal Sunshine’ is a combination of “house music and a little R’n’B”.

The now 30-year-old superstar singer’s label boss leaked information about what to expect from the eagerly awaited follow-up to 2020’s ‘Positions’.

In new behind-the-scenes Instagram video shared by Grande this week, Republic Records co-president Wendy Goldstein stated : “Between you and Max [Martin] it’ll just be perfect. The vocals are great. The changes, the tempos, the house music of it, then there’s a little R’n’B. It’s you. It’s like an elevated version of all the albums that came before like ‘Sweetener’ meets kind of a ‘Thank U, Next’.”

Thus far, fans of the chanteuse have been privy to her first single ‘Yes, And?’ – which subsequently received a Mariah Carey-featured remix – but they won’t hear any additional music before the LP drops next month.

Earlier this month, the Grammy winner recently requested her supporters to listen to the album in full on March 8, rather than releasing a series of singles.

Taking to her Instagram Stories, Grande stated “We are a little over a month away from ‘Eternal Sunshine’ and I don’t think it’s possible to articulate how grateful I am for your love, support and excitement!” “I wanted to say…as hard as it is to resist the urge to share another song or single with you all asap, I would really love for you to experience the album in full this time.” “There will of course be more singles off of this project once it is out (and we may have a little surprise or two up our sleeves to hold you over until then so don’t you worry) but waiting a little longer for you to be able to listen fully through first really is my ideal way for you all to experience this body of work.”

Expressing gratitude and thanks to fans for trusting her “vision and plan” for the highly anticipated album, Ariana added “You have waited so long for new music from me and I am so grateful for your patience!” “I look forward to savoring every second of this new era with you all and I sincerely cannot wait for it to be yours!” “It’s going to be (and already is) so special. I am so excited for all that is to come. More than ever.” “Love you so so so!!! (sic)”

The artist described her full length as “a concept album”, mentioning that a lot of the songs are “really vulnerable”. In a previous Insta post Grande explained how she invited family, friends and members of her Republic Records team to listen to an advanced preview of the collection.

“I’m nervous, but I wanted to share this with you because it’s kind of a concept album.” “It’s all different, heightened pieces of the same story [and] of the same experience. I’m weirdly emotional but… this is what’s going on.” “Some of them are really vulnerable, some of them are [me] playing the part that people expect me to be sometimes and having fun with that,” she said.
