You won't recognise Imelda May with her totally new look.

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.
