Next month, Lita Ford will be releasing Living Like a Runaway, her finest album since the '80s. No joke, the record features some of the vocalist/guitarist's best songwriting with tracks like "The Mask," "Relentless" and the heartfelt ballad "Mother," ready for a future 'Best of' compilation.

After a disappointing album a few years back (that we won't even mention here by name), Ford is obviously determined to take back her throne as the Queen of Hard Rock. Noisecreep is excited about the record and convinced Ford to let us premiere "Branded," the opening track from Living Like a Runaway, and the first taste she's giving the public from the album.

"'Branded' is forever like a tattoo, or a mark that won't go away like a wicked scar! Sometimes people get their significant other's name branded to try and show that they "think" they own you," Ford tells Noisecreep about the track's lyrics.

Check out "Branded" below!
