Zsuzsanna Eva Ward (aka ZZ Ward) has—ahem—"Put the Gun Down" since her last album, teasing her sophomore full-length Monday morning with a sugary sweet single "LOVE 3X."

The glossy track is the first preview of her upcoming LP, This Means War, which is due Sept. 18. Described in a press release as "a sexy, girl power romp with a badass backbeat," the LP is available now for pre-order.
