Lizzo has announced a new album, Special, which will be out July 15 via Nice Life Recording Company/Atlantic Records. The first single is "About Damn Time," a bright, frothy, retro-flavored and instantly appealing disco pop song. You can watch the video below.

"'About Damn Time' can lead into so many conversations," Lizzo told Apple Music's Zane Lowe. "It's about damn time I feel better, it's about damn time we get out this pandemic. It's about damn time we to get the first black female Supreme Court Justice. There's so many things. It's about damn time we popped the champagne. It's about damn time the tequila got here."

The news comes right before Lizzo's appearance on Saturday Night Live this weekend, where she's pulling double duty as host and musical guest. You can watch her and Kenan Thompson SNL promos below, as well.
