Ariana Grande announces new single, “Imagine,” says it’s about “denial”

Dave Meyers/Republic RecordsEven as her current single, “thank u, next,” once again sits on top of the Billboard Hot 100, Ariana Grande has a new single ready to go.

She posted on Twitter that the song, “Imagine,” would arrive Thursday night, but on her Instagram Story, she gave more details, posting a countdown clock that reveals that the song will drop at midnight Friday.

On the Insta Story, Ariana also posted a screenshot of a “Compose new Tweet” text box, in which she’s written, “a lot of this album mourns failed yet important, beautiful relationships in my life (as well as celebrates growth/exploring new independence).”

She continued, “But for those of you asking about imagine: i would say if ‘thank u, next’ = acceptance …. ‘imagine’=denial. hope that makes sense.”

So far, there’s no release date for Ariana’s new album, which she’s said would arrive by the end of 2019.
