Trixie Mattel has prepped new music to coincide with her return to RuPaul’s Drag Race for All Stars 3. In fact, she will be releasing a new single, “Moving Parts,” after the season premiere on Thursday (Jan 25). Judging by the single's cover art, it's safe to assume we'll be hearing the folk-singing drag queen show off her autoharp skills.

Mattel will follow the single with an album, called One Stone, at the end of the All Stars season: “The first one was called Two Birds, the new one is called One Stone,” Mattel told Billboard. “I'm gay, we like themes.”

Trixie’s debut EP, Two Birds, debuted at No. 16 on the Americana/Folk Albums chart. It also hit No. 2 on the Heatseekers Albums chart.

“As the only drag queen folk musician, that might make me the best drag queen folk musician,” Mattel said. “But Dolly Parton might count as a drag queen.“

Mattel will also be returning to The Trixie and Katya Show on Viceland. Though her co-star, Katya Zamolodchikova, has announced a drag hiatus, the network previously taped new episodes, which begin airing this Wednesday (Jan 24).

Check out the single artwork for “Moving Parts” below.
