It's been five years since Katharine McPhee has released a new studio album. Since her 2010 record Unbroken, she's been focusing on acting with a roles in hit TV shows like Smash and Scorpion. But now, the American Idol alumna is returning to the world of music with a new album Hysteria and a bopping new single "Lick My Lips."
"Lick My Lips" will act as the lead single from McPhee's new album Hysteria, which Billboard reports is due for release on July 21. The sunny new song features a sweet as candy beat, with McPhee's vocal giving the right amount of light touches and sass over the heavy production, which offers up a beat and melody that just begs to be danced to.
"You make me lick my lips / You're my favorite flavor / When we kiss / I just want savor every drop of it / I just can't get enough / You make my lick my lips, my lips," McPhee sings in the sunshine-filled chorus.
The accompanying music video features McPhee mugging for the camera in a variety of figure-hugging skirts and barely there bras. It's a little sexual and definitely cheeky. The clip also has a notable '50s vibe to it, with McPhee and her female crew hanging out in a sundae shop. The atmosphere is completed with some diner-approved cherry pie, greasers coming their hair, old school updos and plenty of vintage vehicles and motorcycles.
