Here’s “Lover/Killer,” the new single from My Brightest Diamond’s upcoming album This is My Hand, out September 16 on Asthmatic Kitty Records. After that, MBD aka Shara Worden will be heading out on a world tour.

Like her previous single “Pressure,” the track is an intricately arranged piece of dramatic pop that claps and dances around Worden’s vocals, breaking out into an almost funky jam for the chorus. Like “Pressure,” it’s a lively, unpredictable song, but it’s slightly more down-to-earth and less theatrical. Key word: slightly.

Hear previous single “Pressure” here.
