Rising pop starlet Dev has a new EP, Bittersweet July, set for release in early 2014, which the singer says marks a significant evolution from her 2011 debut album, The Night the Sun Came Up. The changes were both scary and exciting, Dev tells Rolling Stone. "I had to learn to become more comfortable with myself this time around because a lot of my situations were changing around me," she says, "and while I've always made songs about personal situations, this time around they're even more personal, melodically and lyrically."

Now you can take an exclusive first listen to this new chapter in Dev's career with the snappy pop number "Kiss It," which features a guest verse from California rapper Sage the Gemini. "'Kiss It' was inspired by people I used to have in my life that were jerks and, plain and simple, I wanted to tell them to kiss my ass!" Dev says. "I made this song for people who enjoy my sassy side and I think it ended up coming out perfectly – sweet but very sarcastic."
