Ahead of full-length debut What We Lost arriving this month, Janette King has shared another new single from the effort.

"Ooh Yeah" finds the Montreal-based artist embracing self-confidence and self-belief in the name of growth, gliding overtop muted electronics singing, "So long / Goodbye / My old self / Time to die." It follows previously shared singles "Mars" and "Airplane," as well as the DijahSB-assisted "Cool Me Down."

"This idea of walking into a new sense of self came from the forced time alone due to the pandemic where I was left to reflect and learn what my soul truly needs in order to feel whole," King said of her latest. "The song touches on some of the positives of pandemic solitude, namely self-reflection and also rediscovering self-pleasure as a form of empowerment."

What We Lost arrives June 25 through Hot Tramp Records. King was recently named one of Exclaim!'s 8 Emerging Canadian Artists You Need to Hear in June 2021.
