[FIRST LISTEN] Neon Hitch "Poisoned With Love" (Produced by Greg Kurstin)

Neon Hitch's freshly-leaked "Poisoned With Love" shows once again how incredibly versatile she is as an artist. Hitch is a true pop chameleon who can easily go from being sweet and sultry to daring and dominant at the change of a tune.

Whether it's getting real with Mac Miller, writing heartfelt balladry with Sia, getting matching tattoos with Ke$ha or laying down the rules for her "Bad Dog," everything Hitch serves up is unexpected, fun and genuinly compelling. Combine that wildly unique attitude with her photogentic stage persona and what you have is pure star power.

Hitch's brand-new "Poisoned With Love" neatly displays her quirky originality. Starting out with a soothing sound remembling a music box, the song's eerie and restless verses are resolved by a glossy pop chorus that pack a massive hook. Hitch is sick with love and wants you to know about it. She purrs, "This is not fair, I am beyond repair 'cause of you."  

"Poisoned With Love" was produced by none other than hitmaker Greg Kurstin (The Bird & The Bee, Lily Allen, Kylie Minogue, Sky Ferreira) who wraps the song in a finely-tuned, richly-layed package that perfectly accentuates Hitch's idiosyncratic delivery.
