Within this little snippet of studio time Ariana reveals the motivation behind her writing and the tone for the album. Here's everything she said.
What has Ariana Grande said about her new album 'Eternal Sunshine'?
Speaking at the very first run through of her new album 'Eternal Sunshine' with her team at Republic Records, Ariana became very emotional talking about the vulnerability she has poured into this concept album.
She said she would describe it as a concept album because every track is "a heightened piece of the same story [and] of the same experience".
"I'm like weirdly emotional, I think because I have been doing this for you guys for like ten years, twelve years and I'm like, ah!" She started before turning away and whispering to herself: "F**king pull it together, b*tch"
In the clip she says she is going to play nine songs but admits there is 13 tracks altogether for the album.
Discussing the tracks she said: "Some of them 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 and the rest of it is just kind of also really vulnerable."
This "playing the part" angle was very clear in the lyrics and music video for the fist single release of the album 'yes, and?' where she even addresses people speculating about her romantic affairs in a shock line which says: "Why do you care so much who's - I ride?"
This is likely a reference to the backlash she has received over her latest relationship with Wicked co-star Ethan Slater who she met on set of the upcoming film.
The video ends with a cut to the team shaking their heads in disbelief giving a huge applause with a very emotional Ari looking relieved and excited.
Fans are more than ready for 'Eternal Sunshine' to drop with comments like "march 8th couldn't get here any soooner" and "ecstatic doesn’t begin to cover it" flooding her page.
