Kiiara is getting her "Gloe" on, dropping the simmering new track Friday (Aug. 24) with a music video that finds her in a glorious technicolor dreamcoat.

On the slow-winding, sensual track, the “Gold” singer updates her chopped-up electropop with a subdued, trap-heavy undercurrent.

Co-written by pop star-turned-songwriter to the stars Teddy Sinclair (known previously as Natalia Kills), who’s penned for Rihanna and Madonna, “Gloe” captures the trouble of kicking a fair-weather hook-up to the curb. “I’mma glow with or without you” goes the mantra she repeats through the song -- but not before she confesses that she can’t get enough of his loving.

It follows the subdued breakup song “Messy,” which serves as this single’s B-side.

In the video, Kiiara -- adorned in an amazing neon-hued tracksuit -- power-poses on a glowing cubic pedestal. She’s clouded by a deluge of smoke as she struts through the tiny stage, but she ends the video the way she begins, slouched in defeat.

Kiiara is embarking on a headlining tour that starts Oct. 29 in Chicago.
