Ariana Grande unveiled the track list for her forthcoming album, Thank U, Next, which is set to arrive February 8th.
The pop star posted the track list on Instagram and linked to a different account, @sweetener, where it was also posted (Grande used the @sweetener account last fall to reveal details about her 2018 album of the same name). Per the track list, Thank U, Next will include the album’s previously-released title-track, as well as other recent songs “7 Rings” and “Imagine.”
On Instagram, Grande also shared a quick note about the Thank U, Next album art, saying there will be a dark version for the physical release of the album, and a pink version for the digital release. On Monday, Grande also told fans on Twitter that the record would be available to pre-order starting Friday, January 25th.
Thank U, Next will arrive just months after Sweetener, and in a recent interview with Billboard, Grande said she hopes to continue releasing music a similar pace. “My dream has always been to be — obviously not a rapper, but, like, to put out music in the way that a rapper does,” she said. “I feel like there are certain standards that pop women are held to that men aren’t. We have to do the teaser before the single, then do the single, and wait to do the preorder, and radio has to impact before the video, and we have to do the discount on this day, and all this shit. It’s just like, ‘Bruh, I just want to fucking talk to my fans and sing and write music and drop it the way these boys do. Why do they get to make records like that and I don’t?’ So I do and I did and I am, and I will continue to.”
