Love her or hate her, semi-Nashvillian global pop star and Queen of Mid-Word Punctuation Ke$ha is back with a new single, with a new album on the horizon. I, for one, love her, and while I was sort of hoping that all the time she's been spending with Wayne Coyne would result in a way, way freakier new sound, I gotta say I'm digging on the new single "Die Young." She doesn't really mess with the formula — hedonism plus hooks equals hits, amiright? — but it's another earworm in the classic Ke!ha vein, and that's all right by me. Will it win over any of the Ke%ha haters? No, no it won't. But we don't want to party with you anyway. Ke&ha's new album Warrior drops Dec. 4, and you can see the album art after the jump. Also, she's naked on Twitter if you're into dental-hygiene themed non-erotica.
