Drew Barrymore is in the headlines—not for a movie or anything, but because she’s the title of SZA’s new song. The TDE first lady released the track last night, before performing on Jimmy Kimmel. The new single is in line with the overall breeziness of her discography, featuring her call for “gin and juice” over twangy guitar arpeggios.

SZA also announced her new album CTRL, continuing TDE’s steady stream of new projects. The new album, her first since 2014’s Z, follows some inner-label conflict that caused her to tweet “I actually quit” last October. “[TDE co-president Punch] can release my album if he ever feels like it” she said in the since-deleted tweet. There’s no announced released date for CTRL, but you can stream “Drew Barrymore” below.
