Her first release since 2008's @#%&*! SmilersAimee Mann's new single shows off the more pop-oriented side to her usual acoustic tendencies. "Charmer," an upbeat, synth-heavy track, takes a dig at personable people who hide ulterior motives. "The album explores the ideas of charm and people who are charming," explains Mann, "and how they can sometimes be really fun, but sometimes very manipulative – there's a darker side."

The single is from Mann's eighth studio album, Charmer, which will drop on September 18th. Mann will tour in the fall in support of the album's release.
