Zara Larsson’s new era has begun, and she has already begun teasing a new comeback single, Can’t Tame Her.
Zara’s upcoming third international studio album (following 2017’s So Good and 2021’s Poster Girl) sounds like a total banger in the best way. With hints of effervescent 80s synth-pop and empowering lyrics about how you can’t “change, blame, or tame” a girl who wants to “party all night,” this song is a must-listen. We say all power to you, hun.
It sounds like a brilliant mash-up of The Weeknd’s massive hit Blinding Lights and Ava Max’s underappreciated rammer. Maybe You’re The Problem, it’s safe to say we have high hopes for this banger. We imagine Zara is the same way. She recently shared a snippet of the song’s chorus, along with a choreography rehearsal (presumably for a brand new music video), and let’s just say…she’s taking it.
Zara has reportedly been working extensively on her new album with Rick Nowels (Lana Del Rey, Marina) and Danja (Nelly Furtado, Britney Spears), though it is currently unknown which producers or writers worked on the new track, which does have a Max Martins vibe to it, we won’t lie…

Cannot Control Zara’s release will also mark the beginning of a new and exciting chapter in her career, as she joins a brand-new record label. It was announced earlier this summer that the Swedish starlet had launched her own label, Sommer House, which is licenced by Epic Records and Sony Sweden, and that she also holds all master recording rights to her previous material, including hits like Lush Life and Ruin My Life, which was released under TEN Music Group in her native Sweden, making Zara one of the few pop girls working today to earn the rights to the music she’s created.
Zara’s most recent official release was the hypnotic dance anthem Words, co-written with DJ Alesso, which peaked at Number 36 on the Official Singles Chart, earning her a tenth UK chart position.
Zara is perhaps best known for her sterling run of hits, including MNEK collaboration Never Forget You (Number 5), pitch-perfect anthem Lush Life (Number 3), and I Would Like (Number 2), while Clean Bandit’s orchestral banger Symphony gave Zara her first UK chart topper.
