Now that Ariana Grande has premiered her new single “Problem,” featuring Iggy Azalea and an uncredited Big Sean, the pop starlet is ready to start talking about her sophomore album. In a recent interview with Billboard, Grande revealed some details about the Yours Truly follow-up, including producers and the expected release date.

“I never thought I’d be able to say this, but I love this [album] five times as much as I love Yours Truly,” she said. “They’re different, but I love this one so much more.” The LP is slated for an August or September release, and she nabbed Max Martin and Savan Kotecha as lead producers, with assists from Benny Blanco, Ryan Tedder, Key Wane, Rodney Jerkins, Zedd and more.

“We’ve done a song together that I think is my favorite song that I’ve ever done,” she said of the Jerkins joint, adding that her Zedd collab is “fantastic and super-experimental for me. I never thought I’d do an EDM song, but that was an eye-opening experience, and now all I want to do is dance.”
