After turning her finely-manicured hands to music on debut single 'Tonight' earlier this year, RuPaul's Drag Race UK winner The Vivienne is back with another banger.

Britain's busiest drag queen, who has starred in TV shows The Vivienne Takes On Hollywood and Netflix's I Like To Watch since snatching the crown at the end of last year, has turned to her hero Pete Burns for inspiration for her latest track.

'Spin Me Round' is a fresh house dance take on Dead or Alive's 1985 classic which sees The Vivienne team up with dance supremo Initial Talk, who's worked on remixes for all your fave pop girls, from Dua Lipa to Kylie Minogue.

The Vivienne, who paid tribute to fellow Liverpudlian Burns on Drag Race UK with a runway look inspired by the late musician, once again channels the star in the newly-released lyric video, which teases the upcoming video.

Speaking to Attitude earlier this year, The Vivienne opened up about her 'Say yes' approach to fame the opportunities coming her way since being crowned Britain's Next Drag Superstar.

"You can never predict what's going to happen after Drag Race, you just take every day as it comes," she said. "Say yes to everything and see what works. I'd love to do the West End, I'd love to do all sorts of stuff. Just do it and have fun."
