Ari appeared on the Zach Sang Show on Monday to promote her upcoming projects, including her Wicked movie this fall and Eternal Sunshine, which will be out March 8.

The yes, and? artist mentioned the demo songs she made with producer Max Martin before filming began on Wicked, which were notoriously leaked to TikTok last year without the singer's consent and promptly went viral.

"Thank you so much. I'll see you in jail. Literally," Ariana joked to host Zach Sang.

She added that the success of the bootlegged TikTok-viral songs had actually inspired her to rework them for Eternal Sunshine.

"They're completely different now," she revealed. "So although you've heard them – because you stole them – they're very different now."

Ariana went on to hint that some of the songs address the "inexplicable hellish feeling [of] watching people misunderstand the people you love and you," seemingly referencing her highly scrutinized romantic life.

The r.e.m. beauty mogul confessed that she hadn't intended to work on new songs until after she was done promoting Wicked, but the SAG-AFTRA strike had given her some downtime.

She spent the strike exploring her "healing" relationship with music, noting that she'd written the album "with no intention for the world to hear it."

Part 2 of the Zach Sang interview with Ari, a track-by-track walk-through of Eternal Sunshine, will be available on the Amazon Music app on March 8.
