But while you wait for the record to drop, we’ve got a special treat in the form of its title track, “Hello”, which you can greet by clicking play after the jump!

“Hello” was co-written by Karmin’s Amy Heidemann and Nick Noonan, Claude Kelly (who co-wrote Karmin’s “Brokenhearted”) and Stargate‘s Tor Erik Hermansen and Mikkel Storleer Eriksen. Stargate, who you know from whipping up chart-topping hits like Rihanna‘s “What’s My Name”, Wiz Khalifa‘s “Black And Yellow” and Katy Perry‘s “Firework”, also produced the track.
In fact, we dig that “Hello” contains similar other-worldly synths to those in “What’s My Name”, but also manages to maintain that distinct Karmin edge. “Racetrack, two legs / Hollywood, big break / suck it up, intake / let me tell you how it happened real quick,” Amy raps on the autobiographical tune.
