Ariana Grande has released a new, No Tears Left To Cry, almost one year on from the Manchester bombing.
She was performing the Manchester Arena when a suicide bomber killed 22 people and injured hundreds on the 22nd of May 2017.
Her reaction to the attack led to her being made the first honorary citizen of Manchester after she organised the One Love Manchester concert a fortnight after the bombing.

She teased the new music in a series of tweets which included tear emojis and announced that it would the track’s release date, “ʎɹɔ oʇ ʇɟǝl sɹɐǝʇ ou 4.20”.
The video begins at night and sees Arianna strutting around a futuristic city with unusual gravity until sunrise when she plays fetch with a dog beside a bed of water.
She paid tribute to the victims of the Manchester bombing by featuring a bee in the video – It is a symbol of Mancunian unity and strength that many people, including Arianna, got tattooed on them as a show of solidarity to the victims in the wake of the bombing.
