Lorely Rodriguez is releasing her sophomore Empress Of album, Us, on Oct. 19 via Terrible Records. Today, she’s shared the third single off the album, “Love For Me.” The catchy electro-synth song features co-production from DJDS and follows the previously released singles “Trust Me Baby” and “When I’m With Him.”
Us follows Rodriguez’s 2015 debut Me and features production from Dev Hynes of Blood Orange, Spanish producer Pional, and DJDS.

Empress Of and DJDS have previously collaborated, releasing two tracks together last year, including a cover of Lana Del Rey’s “Love.” Listen to “Love For Me” below.
