Chameleonic pop singer Alex Winston adopts the role of a spurned lover on her latest single, the just-unveiled "101 Vultures." Backed by piston-powered synths and hazy hymnal vocals, the King Con empress scolds, "You should have done better." Elsewhere, she breathes fire: "I don't mean to be so crass about the situation but it's easier than breaking down... In a sea of motherfuckers, man, you were no salvation, face it."

Stream the new track below (via Idolator), and check out Winston's debut full-length, 2012's King Con, here at SPIN.
