Ariana Grande reveals the cover art for her new album, ‘thank u, next’

The follow-up to 'Sweetener' is imminent

Ariana Grande has revealed details of the cover art for ‘thank u, next’ just hours after confirming that it will drop next month.

The singer only released her fourth studio album ‘Sweetener’ back in August, but has since outlined her plans to quickly release another record – especially after the success of the upcoming album’s title track, which came out back in November.

The singer shared a picture of the artwork on social media before describing it as her “fav album cover.” She added: “brian painted me. fredo shot me. made with tru, deep friendship and love. just like this music.”

Speaking about the upside down pose in the cover image, Grande added: “she still upside-down, but this time she kinda…fuck w it lol.”

Earlier in the day, Grande also announced details about the ‘thank u, next’ album, revealing that the 12-track record will also feature the songs ‘Imagine’ and ‘7 Rings’. The artist shared the tracklist in an Instagram post, which also confirmed that the record’s final track is called ‘break up with your girlfriend, i’m bored’.

‘thank u, next’ will be out on February 8 – check out the tracklist below.

This announcement also confirms that Grande’s new album will be released a full two months before she headlines this year’s Coachella festival.

Last weekend, Grande paid fresh tribute to the late Mac Miller through a number of posts on her Instagram stories to mark what would’ve been the late rapper’s 27th birthday.

Miller, who was in a relationship with Grande from 2016 until May 2018, died last September following a drug overdose at his California home.
