Greedy for some new music from Ariana Grande? Then you're in luck.

The "Side to Side" singer recently revealed through Instagram Stories that she is hard at work on her forthcoming album.

It all began when a Grande fan account posted a blurry black and white photo of what appeared to be the singer in the studio. Grande was quick to screenshot the post and explain "i'm pretty sure dis is very old or fake" before continuing "if you wanted confirmation that i've been workin why didn't you just ask?"

Grande then posted a Polaroid shot of her working on new music to her account followed by a black and white video of her in the same position continuing to work on what is sure to be some more smash hits. 

The upcoming effort would be the follow-up to her smash 2016 Dangerous Woman album and the first set of new music from Grande since the tragic bombing that occurred at her concert in Manchester last May where a bomb was set off after the show that killed more than 20 and injured countless others. 

"It's been very challenging for all of us involved," Grande told Billboard back in September about why she has been so hesitant to get back into the studio following the horrific attack. "So it would be nice to really hold my loved ones close for a little while, stay home for a little bit. But knowing me, I'm going to be in the studio because I love it, and I want to create. I started an album already a year ago, over a year ago, but I want to keep creating, and it's not done yet. So I'm going to take my sweet ass time, so I'll be rested and ready to go again as soon as possible."

A spokesperson for Grande could not be reached at press time for additional information on the album.
