Ariana Grande just released the lead track from her forthcoming studio album, “No Tears Left to Cry,” and while’s it’s not the power ballad most fans were expecting, it’s still full of emotion. After a months-long absence from social media, the singer returned earlier this week, teasing her new single — and a new look.

Her first new track since the bombing at her Manchester, UK, concert last May left 22 attendees dead and more than 500 injured, the upbeat, catchy song is one of healing — very much in the vein of her One Love Manchester benefit concert, which took place in city just weeks after the bombing.

Naturally, fans were quick to pick up on the song’s uplifting, defiant words and were moved by the singer’s cathartic message. For those looking to dissect the beautiful message, here are the lyrics, per genius.com:

In addition to releasing the song at midnight, Grande also released a stunning, Inception-esque music video, which also contained subtle references to Manchester.

The song is both incredibly meaningful and so catchy — and we just can’t get enough of it.
