Colombian pop/rock star Juanes will release the first single from his new album "La Vida Es ... Un Ratico" to radio in Asia, Europe and the Americas Sept. 4, in advance of the album's Oct. 23 release via Universal.

"Me Enamora" will be made available to mobile providers and digital retail simultaneously. The song is the first new material from Juanes since 2004's "Mi Sangre" album, which has sold more than 659,000 copies in the United States, according to Nielsen SoundScan.

That set's single, "La Camisa Negra," became a No. 1 hit in Germany, France, Italy, Spain, Austria and Switzerland.

"La Vida Es ... Un Ratico," a fusion of rock, pop and Colombian rhythms, will feature a collaboration with Argentine rock legend Andres Calamaro on the song "Minas Piedras" and a duet, "Bandera de Manos," with German rocker Campino of the punk band Die Toten Hosen. Production was supplied by Juanes and collaborator Gustavo Santaolalla.
