Rita Ora's long-awaited new album, Phoenix, is due Friday, and she's making sure to keep fans entertained in the days leading up to the full release.

Her new single, released Wednesday (Nov. 21), is titled "Falling to Pieces" and marks her third song in the last eight days, after the smooth R&B-heavy "Velvet Rope" last week and the layered, melodic "Cashmere" on Monday.

"We're falling to pieces/ All of the pieces come undone/ We're falling to pieces/ All of the pieces one by one," Ora sings during the chorus before giving way to a trumpet interlude. Later in the song, the trumpet gets its moment in the sun, with a solo serving as the outro to the track.

All three of the singles from the past week-plus involve lyrics either about struggling or heat-of-the-moment relationships, and it appears that fans will be treated to more of the same when her full sophomore studio effort drops Friday.

“I've always had like features and done films, and things like that,” she told Billboard at the 2018 American Music Awards. “But this is the first time I get to pour my heart out, and I'm…not nervous, I'm just a bit excited, but a little bit like I don't know what's going to happen…it's the first time I'm like letting go, so we'll see.”
