June 20 (UPI) — Ariana Grande has announced that her forth studio album Sweetener will arrive on Aug. 17.

The announcement came alongside the release of Grande’s new single featuring rapper Nicki Minaj titled “The Light Is Coming.” The track, produced by Pharrell Williams, reached music streaming services Wednesday at midnight.

“Ah, gonna break that [expletive] down/You don’t wait until they wait another round/ Ah, guess you’re way above it now/And that’s your way to love it now,” Grande sings on “The Light is Coming.”

Grande released a preview of the single and the cover art for Sweetener on Twitter. The cover features the singer upside down with silver hair.

Sweetener, which will also feature the single “No Tears Left to Cry,” can be pre-ordered on Grande’s official website which notes that all album orders will give pre-sale access to tickets for an upcoming tour.

Grande recently made headlines when she became engaged to actor and comedian Pete Davidson after a few weeks of dating.
