American actress and singer Ariana Grande is getting ready to release her highly-anticipated debut album ‘Yours Truly’ in the fall 2013. After much speculation, the upcoming record – originally titled ‘Daydreamin” and scheduled for a late August 2013 release – will now definitely be released on September 3, 2013 via Republic Records. In addition to that, the 20-year-old singer shared the official album artwork with her 7.9 million followers on Twitter on Wednesday, July 31, 2013.
The new record’s artwork shows Grande sitting on a bed made out of roses, in front of a pink background. The young pop star is seen wearing lingerie and stockings on the cover, which is a bit risky for her girl-next-door image, but the singer did state in a follow-up tweet after the cover reveal, “But it’s about the music.”
Grande already released two singles before the album’s premiere and both songs will be included in ‘Yours Truly’. The pop star’s first single, ‘The Way’ featuring Pittsburgh rapper Mac Miller, was released on March 26, 2013 and it peaked at No. 9 on the Billboard chart, while the follow-up single ‘Baby I’ was released on July 22, 2013 and it debuted at No. 21 on this week’s Hot 100 chart.
Fans will be able to pre-order Grande’s first album, ‘Yours Truly’ beginning of next week and the singer will go on her first-ever string of live shows, titled ‘The Listening Sessions tour’ on August 13, 2013.
