Sultry songstress Sky Ferreira has unveiled her debut American single, the bombastic “Obsession.” With its beat lifted from Gary Glitter’s 1972 classic “Rock And Roll” (by way of Katy Perry’s “I Kissed A Girl”), the song launches into an irresistible near-four-minutes of hooks and sing-along lyrics. Will this jam become radio’s “obsession”? Head below to listen.

Yeah—we can totally picture the Penguins jamming to this one. “Obsession” and Ferreira’s European single “One” are set to appear on the 17-year-old pop singer’s debut album, which is set for a January 11, 2011 release. (Flip through exclusive pics from the album shoot.)

“One” will be made available overseas on August 23.
