Ariana Grande’s New Album, 'My Everything,' Arrives August 25
New single "Break Free," featuring Zedd, and MTV’s "Total Ariana Live" special, both bowing July 2.
Want more Ariana Grande? No “Problem.” Your wish has been granted.
The sizzling diva will release her second full-length album, My Everything, on Republic Records, she revealed exclusively to Ryan Seacrest this past Saturday in an interview airing on iHeartRadio.com, ArianaGrande.com and all Yahoo! stations.
Following the double-platinum smash single “Problem,” her sophomore set comes out August 25.
Grande will also help launch the reboot of MTV’s legendary Total Request Live — this Wednesday. For one day only, this 30-minute special, dubbed Total Ariana Live — TAL — will see her “Arianators” invade Times Square. After performing a stripped-down version of “Problem,” she will debut her new single, “Break Free,” and announce an upcoming surprise to MTV News host Sway Calloway.
In addition, Republic Records has partnered with Branded Cities Network — the largest operator of iconic large-format interactive digital billboards in Times Square — to telecast Total Ariana Live for fans to watch outside.
“Break Free” sees Grande collaborating with world-renowned producer Zedd and co-producer Max Martin. Other guest appearances on My Everything include Big Sean (“Best Mistake”), The Weeknd (“Love Me Harder”), Childish Gambino (“Break Your Heart Right Back”), A$AP Ferg (“Hands on Me”) Ryan Tedder and Benny Blanco (“Why Try”) and One Direction's Harry Styles, who wrote the powerful "A Little Bit of Your Heart" specifically for Grande. Martin and his production team MXM produced five of the record's tracks, while other top dial-twisters featured on the album include Rodney Jerkins, Oak & Pop, and Harmony & Tommy Brown. The deluxe edition of My Everything features three additional tracks, including a surprise epic team-up.
Grande will perform at Macy's Fourth of July Fireworks Spectacular on July 4 as well as during the VH1 Presents Philly Fourth of July Jam with The Roots. She'll also take over the Today Show stage on August 29 as part of the Today Show Summer Concert Series.
