Ariana Grande on Album’s Reworked Leaked Songs

Ariana Grande's upcoming seventh full length album, Eternal Sunshine, will feature revamped versions of her leaked songs.

The pop superstar has confirmed that because fans vibed with the leaked material so much, the tracks, including a demo of "Fantasize," will now appear in their new form on her eagerly awaited follow-up to 2020's Positions.

Speaking on the 'Zach Sang Show,' Grande had commented about the leak: “Thank you so much. I'll see you in jail. Literally."

The Grammy Award-winning, multi-platinum recording artist says the songs - which she worked on with her long-time super producer Max Martin - sound "completely different" now.

The 30-year-old shared: "It was like a parody of this girl group vibe. But [the fans] love it… It's so corny, but it's okay. I took the note and I kind of gave them Ariana's version of that on the album.

"They're completely different now. So although you've heard them — because you stole them — they're very different now."

She added: "When I was writing it was with no intention for the world to hear it.

"I wrote them when I was very emotional, some of them, and then some of them are more bops."

Grande wrote the songs during her break from filming a pair of 'Wicked' films in London due to the Hollywood writers' strike last year. She wasn't going to pen new songs until after filming had wrapped because she needed to keep pop star Ariana and her character in the films, Glinda, separate.

She said: "I had to completely erase pop star Ari — the person they know so well — because it's harder to believe someone as someone else because they're so branded as one thing. I had to really go all the way to strip that down."

Grande's eagerly awaited upcoming album Eternal Sunshine - which includes the hit lead single "yes, and?" -  is to be released on March 8 via Republic Records and available for pre-order here now.
