Ariana Grande has included a touching tribute to Manchester in her first new music since last May’s deadly terror attack outside her show in the city.

The US singer unveiled her brand new single ‘No Tears Left to Cry’ on Friday (April 22), 11 months after the bombing at Manchester Arena which left 22 dead. 

With lyrcis including “Ain’t got no tears left to cry / So I’m pickin’ it up, pickin’ it up / I’m lovin’, I’m livin’, I’m pickin’ it up,” the track channels the same resilient spirit which Grande exhibited when she held the One Love concert just two weeks after the tragedy to help raise money for victims’ families. 

The 24-year-old also included a moving nod to Manchester in the form of a bee – the city’s symbol – which flies away at the video’s close. 

”No Tears Left to Cry’ is the first track to be lifted from Grande’s upcoming fourth studio album, which serves as the follow-up to 2016’s UK chart-topper Dangerous Woman.
