Entitled “You’re Mine,” the song is a moving ballad that is a tribute to her late boyfriend and co-star, Cory Monteith, who died in July.

Michele gave fans an early listen to one of her most personal tracks by sharing a link to the full audio track for “You’re Mine.”

“My next . . . track #YOUREMINE (available tomorrow) is my favorite song on #LOUDER,” she tweeted Monday. “It’s so special to me & its story is so close to my heart.”

The song’s heartfelt lyrics include, “And you said those three words I’ve been waiting for/ You became a part of me,” as well as “You’re mine, for life/ And I’ll be by your side/ We are entwined/ You’re mine, for life.”

Michele spoke about the song, and its special meaning, to Elle late last year. “The album was done, and the label said, ‘Do you want to add anything?’ I was like, ‘I might regret it if I don’t,'” she said at the time. “It makes me think so much of Cory. It was ours. When I think if him, I play this.”

Her debut album, Louder, is set to be released on March 4, 2014.

In another post, the 27-year-old starlet said that her upcoming song was written by “the amazing” Australian singer/songwriter Sia Furler.

The single will be available on December 10, the same day fans can pre-order her highly anticipated solo album.

Michele has already filmed the music video for the track. “SO EXCITED SHOOTING MY VERY FIRST MUSIC VIDEO TODAY FOR THE FIRST ALBUM SINGLE!” she tweeted earlier this month. She also posted several photos taken from the set.

Michele, who stars as Rachel Berry of Fox‘s hit musical dramedy, plans to release her first studio effort in early 2014. In an interview with Elle for the magazine’s December issue, she revealed that her album would be featuring a song that she recorded for her late boyfriend, Cory Monteith.

The song is titled “If You Say So“, which were the last words Monteith said to her before he died back in July.

Michele said that she initially had no plan to include the song in her album.

“The album was done, and the label said, ‘Do you want to add anything?’ I was like, ‘I might regret it if I don’t,’ ” she said of adding the song to the tracklist at the last minute.
