Everything We Know About Ariana Grande’s New Album Eternal Sunshine

Must read

Ariana Grande is back from somewhere over the rainbow. On Dec. 7, 2023, she posted some photos of her in the recording studio, which of course got the internet buzzing with rumors that she was working on an album.

“FINALLY,” commented fellow singer Selena Gomez.

“Oh this bout to eat,” SZA wrote.

Then, on December 17, Grande teased the album once again, posting a video with no audio of her singing in the studio.

All of the rumors turned out to be true when, on Jan. 7, 2024, Grande announced her single “yes, and?” The song dropped a few days later on January 12 and debuted at number one on the Billboard Hot 100.

Grande also released a music video for “yes, and?” that same day. She was inspired by singer Paula Abdul and her 1988 music video for “Cold Hearted.”

One week later, Grande officially announced her upcoming seventh studio album, Eternal Sunshine. This is her first album since Positions in 2020, so fans have been anxiously awaiting new music from the Wicked star.

With just one month until the album’s release, ahead is everything you need to know about Eternal Sunshine.

When does Eternal Sunshine come out?

On January 17, Grande officially announced the title and release date of her newest album: Eternal Sunshine comes out on March 8, 2024.

“I think this one may be your favorite. It is mine,” Grande posted to her Instagram Story on February 1.

Grande is keeping the songs from this album under wraps until its official release.

On February 5, she posted to her Instagram story, “my loves ♡ 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.”

“Thank you for your trust in my vision and plan! You ave 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,” she finished.

However, Grande also revealed that there would be seven different cover variations.

On February 7, Grande revealed some more song titles on her Instagram. Track 2 is called “bye,” track 6 is “supernatural,” and track 10, “we can’t be friends (wait for your love).”

What can we expect from Eternal Sunshine?

On February 1, Grande posted an Instagram Reel from when she first played some of the songs from the album for her family and team.

“I wanted to share with you this, it’s kinda a concept album because it’s all different heightened pieces of the same story, of the same experience,” she said in the video.

“Some are really vulnerable. Some of them are, like, playing the part that people kind of expect me to be sometimes and having fun with that,” she continued. “And the rest of it is also just kinda really vulnerable.”

Will Grande be going on tour?

According to some genius TikTok sleuths, the coding on Grande’s website was updated to eventually include a “tour dates” section, so we can hopefully expect to see her perform Eternal Sunshine live soon.
