The Veronicas Return With Ballad “You Ruin Me”: Listen To The Radio Premiere

The Veronicas are officially back! After several years of label limbo, the Australian twins found a home with Sony and got right back in the studio. “You Ruin Me” is the first taste of the duo’s long-delayed third LP (I’m guessing “Lolita” won’t make the cut) and the raw piano ballad is a something of departure for the former pop/rockers. To say the least.

While I pray for another “4Ever” or “Untouched” every night before bed, it’s good to see that Jess and Lisa have grown as artists during their absence from the spotlight. “You Ruin Me” is an absolutely depressing break-up anthem (“Job well done, standing ovation. You got what you wanted, I guess you won”) that will be played on repeat by bitter bitches from Sydney to San Francisco. I wonder if they have an uptempo version of the song on their laptop. Listen to the radio premiere after the jump.
