Alessia Cara’s debut studio album Know-It-All is due out next month via Def Jam, and after releasing a banger-packed EP, Four Pink Walls, this summer, anticipation is building.

Tuesday, the 19-year-old singer released “Wild Things,” the first new song from the collection. Featuring lyrics like, “Gather all the rebels now/ We’ll rebel rouse and sing aloud/ We don’t care what they say no way, no way,” it’s keeping with the “antisocial optimist” message in her first single, “Here,” which garnered critical praise and an endorsement from Taylor Swift earlier this year.

“I can’t really explain it,” Cara told EW of “Here” in August. “I guess it’s alternative pop. If you hear it, you’ll get what I’m trying to say.”

Know-It-All is available for pre-order before it drops Nov. 13.
