Ariana Grande won't release any more singles before her new album drops next month.

The 30-year-old singer — whose recent hit Yes, And? was fans' first taste of what to expect from her upcoming new record Eternal Sunshine — has insisted she wants her supporters to listen to this LP in full when it is released on March 8, rather than being drip-fed the material bit by bit.

She wrote on her Instagram Story this week: "We are a little over a month away from Eternal Sunshine and I don't think it's possible to articulate how grateful I am for your love, support and excitement!

"I wanted to say...as hard as it is to resist the urge to share another song or single with you all asap, I would really love for you to experience the album in full this time.

"There will of course be more singles off of this project once it is out (and we may have a little surprise or two up our sleeves to hold you over until then so don't you worry) but waiting a little longer for you to be able to listen fully through first really is my ideal way for you all to experience this body of work."

Ariana thanked fans for trusting her "vision and plan" for the long awaited follow-up to 2020's Positions.

She continued: "You have waited so long for new music from me and I am so grateful for your patience! I look forward to savoring every second of this new era with you all and I sincerely cannot wait for it to be yours!

"It's going to be (and already is) so special. I am so excited for all that is to come. More than ever. Love you so so so!!! (sic)"

Arian recently described the record as "a concept album", noting that a lot of the songs are "really vulnerable".

In a previous post on Instagram, she explained how she invited family, friends and members of her team at Republic Records to listen to an advanced preview of the collection.

She said: "I'm nervous, but I wanted to share this with you because it's kind of a concept album. It's all different, heightened pieces of the same story [and] of the same experience. I'm weirdly emotional but... this is what's going on.

"Some of them are really vulnerable, some of them are [me] playing the part that people expect me to be sometimes and having fun with that."
