It’s a hot new look – and new sound – for former Destiny’s Child member Michelle Williams, and PEOPLE has your exclusive first listen to “We Break the Dawn,” the synth-heavy first single from her album, Unexpected, due in August. (Click play below to hear it, then check out the singer’s official Web site michellewilliamsonline.com for more info.)

It’s a big new step for Williams, whose previous two albums focused more on her gospel roots – and it has the pop seal of approval from Mathew Knowles (aka Beyoncé’s father), who’s releasing the disc through Music World Entertainment/Columbia Records.
