Selena Gomez released her new single “Wolves” and it could be her most personal song lyrically.

The singer’s collaboration with helmeted DJ/producer Marshmello dropped on Wednesday, making it the third EDM feature Gomez has done since Kygo’s “It Ain’t Me” and Zedd‘s “I Want You to Know.”

In the chorus for “Wolves” Gomez belts out: “I’ve been running through the jungle/ I’ve been crying with the wolves/ To get to you, to get to you/ I’ve been down the darkest alleys/ Saw the dark side of the moon/ To get to you, to get to you.”

Interestingly, Selenators have drawn the parallel between the song title and the scientific name for wolves: canine lupus.

“Wolves” is Gomez’s first release since she revealed in September that she had a kidney transplant, which she needed due to complications from the chronic autoimmune disease lupus.

Gomez previously opened up about her kidney donor, her longtime friend, actress Francia Raisa, and shared a photo of the pair holding hands from their hospital beds as well as pictures of her stomach following surgery.

The singer first announced her lupus diagnosis in October 2015 and took time off in summer of 2016 when she told PEOPLE exclusively: “I’ve discovered that anxiety, panic attacks and depression can be side effects of lupus, which can present their own challenges. I want to be proactive and focus on maintaining my health and happiness and have decided that the best way forward is to take some time off.”

Full lyrics below:

In your eyes there’s a heavy blue
One to love and one to lose
Sweet divide, a heavy truth

Water or wine, don’t make me choose
I wanna feel the way that we did that summer night
Drunk on a feeling, alone with the stars in the sky

I’ve been running through the jungle
I’ve been crying with the wolves to get to you, to get to you
I’ve been down the darkest alleys
Saw the dark side of the moon to get to you, to get to you
I’ve looked for love in every stranger
Took too much to ease the anger all for you, yea all for you
I’ve been running through the jungle
I’ve been crying with the wolves to get to you, oh to get to you

Your fingertips trace my skin to places I have never been
Blindly I am following
Break down these walls and come on in
I wanna feel the way that we did that summer night
Drunk on a feeling, alone with the stars in the sky

I’ve been running through the jungle
I’ve been running with the wolves to get to you, to get to you
I’ve been down the darkest alleys
Saw the dark side of the moon to get to you, to get to you
I’ve looked for love in every stranger
Took too much to ease the anger all for you, yea all for you
I’ve been running through the jungle
I’ve been crying with the wolves to get to you, oh to get to you
