The Mayhem singer has released the first song from her upcoming album and looks incredibly different in the video for Call Me.

Imelda has swapped her blonde quiff for a relaxed fringe, and traded her signature red lipstick for a subtle nude lip.

“I just got fed up being a hairdo, an image, a style," said the 42-year-old, reports the Evening Standard.

"It got to the stage where it wasn’t me any more and it was a caricature."

"I felt boxed in and bored by discussions about my style as opposed to my music, songwriting, producing, which is what drives me."

The Liberties-native divorced from her husband of 13 years Darrel Higham in 2015, although she says the album isn't a "breakup record."

“It’s not a breakup record. I came full circle as I was writing. It’s all in there: birth, sex, love, divorce and death. It’s the story of my life.”

The couple have one four-year-old daughter, Violet, together.

Call Me is out now.
