SWEET TOOTH

Ariana Grande, Worldwide – 17th August

Did you see the tweet from the lady herself: ‘hello it’s sweetener week’? It was all we needed to get excited about Ariana Grande’s brand new album. If her latest songs – The Light Is Coming and No Tears Left To Cry – and her album cover are anything to go by, it’s going to turn our worlds upside down. Get ready to put the album on your favourite playlist.

 

HERE FOR A GOOD TIME

Kokoro Pop Up Gin Bar, Manchester – 16th August
