Ariana Grande will be closing out the summer with a bang. The singer announced over Twitter on Saturday night that her new album will be coming out on August 25th – and that it will be titled My Everything.

The new album announcement came amid a stream of tweets from Grande that shared a few other tidbits. First came an Instragrammed teaser of her new Barbarella- and Star Wars-inspired video for the Zedd-produced song, "Break Free," along with a hashtag hyping its release date, #4DaysUntilBreakFree.

Grande also announced that fans who preorder My Everything will have exclusive access to an iHeartRadio concert in which the singer will perform new songs from the album for the first time. The preorder will also include T-shirts, posters and other merchandise.

Grande also tweeted out a link to an interview with Ryan Seacrest posted last night, in which she shares the cover of the album and delves into some of its contents. She noted that it will feature another collaboration with Big Sean on a song called "Best Mistake," and that the inclusion of "Problem," her smash-hit collaboration with Iggy Azalea, wasn't always a sure thing. "I had no idea that 'Problem' was even gonna be on the album until I heard the final mix of the song," she said.

“You Oughta Know”

Alanis Morissette | 1995

This blunt, bitter breakup song -- famous for its line "Would she go down on you in a theater?" -- was long rumored to be about Alanis Morissette getting dumped by Full House actor Dave Coulier. But while she never confirmed it was about him (Coulier himself says it is, however), she insisted the song wasn't all about scorn. "By no means is this record just a sexual, angry record," she told Rolling Stone. "The song wasn't written for the sake of revenge. It was written for the sake of release. I'm actually a pretty rational, calm person."
