Moonlight is Ariana Grande's third album. It is set for a late 2015 release (though this has not yet been confirmed). The album was recorded starting in July 2014, though the majority of it was recorded while Ariana was on The Honeymoon Tour in early 2015.
Background & Naming
In a livestream, Ariana Grande confirmed that work had begun on her third studio album, which will be the follow up to her 2014 album My Everything. In the livestream, she said that she wants to release it in late summer or early fall, following in suit to her previous albums. She also said that she had played some new material for her grandmother earlier that day. The name "moonlight" provided inspiration for the album, as Ariana has been tweeting it often.
