Anyone in the mood for a little…controversy? (Uh huh.)

It’s been a minute since we last heard from brooding bad bitch, Natalia Kills. After dropping razor-sharp cuts like “Wonderland,” “Free,” and “Kill My Boyfriend” along with her debut record Perfectionist back in 2011, the UK-bred vixen has returned–and now, she’s going harder, faster, stronger, controversial-er.

“Controversy” is the very first offering from the Cherrytree chanteuse’s upcoming sophomore record, Trouble, due out in 2013. It’s not the lead single–just a taste of new tunes to come.

Co-produced by Jeff Bhasker (Kanye West, Alicia Keys), the menacing track finds Natalia sounding off on the worst of the worst of society between aggressive drum beats and jagged synth stabs. “All the girls are friends with Molly/Dilated, X-rated/Pageant princess, puking rainbows,” she monotones.

The track is a fairly radical shift in direction musically for Kills, moving away from the melody-driven pop sheen of her past productions into ferocious electro. “What the fuck you lookin’ at? This ain’t high school, pussy cat,” Kills growls, bringing Peaches to mind instantly–which I love.

The only question is…will you drink the Kool-Aid?

Trouble will be released in 2013.

    It’s been fun seeing her come into her own. this feels like the completion of a cycle of evolution. She’s found a persona that stays true to her original intentions but is more her own and even darker. This wipes out most of Born this Way. Although Famesque Love is a Suicide is still one of my faves. Oh and Robyn is pretty good with lists too.

    This is just what I love out of Natalia: kinda overwrought, kinda clunky and cringeworthy, but completely entertaining. She has just the right mix of pretense and not taking herself seriously. It’s wonderful.

    I gotta say, I don’t care for it. It feels desparate to me.
