Fall Out Boy have released “Irresistible,” the fourth song to be released from their forthcoming album American Beauty/American Psycho.

Available for an immediately download on iTunes, the new single follows three previously released songs—”The Kids Aren’t Alright, “American Beauty/American Psycho” and “Centuries,” the latter of which currently claims the No. 2 position on Billboard’s Rock Songs chart.

All three tracks are available as instant downloads when you pre-order the $7.99 album.

“When I think of ‘Irresistible’ it brings this image to my head, whether it’s fictional or real, of Sid and Nancy in an alley garbage raining down on them in an eternal  spiral of romance and poison,” explained Pete Wentz of the song. “Sometimes it hard not to love what can hurt us the most.”

Last March, Wentz teased one of his favorite lyrics via Twitter.

Unlike the band’s typical guitar-driven choruses, “Irresistible” boasts trumpets giving it some pomp and circumstance, and a marching band feel. Frontman Patrick Stump took up the trumpet some time ago, featuring the instrument on older tunes including “I’ve Got All This Ringing in my Ears and None on my Fingers” and “Infinity on High.”
