Lady Gaga and Ke$ha seem to release a new single every three months or so. But fans of Subtle Sexuality, the red-hot fake girl group featuring The Office mates Mindy Kaling and Ellie Kemper, have been forced to wait more than a year for the follow-up to “Male Prima Donna,” even though Kaling promised us last August there would be more tunes forthcoming. Well, the agony is almost over: A video has been shot for the new song, and Kaling says it’s expected to drop in about a month via a new NBC.com webisode series. So what’s the title?

Vulture, which considers itself the MTV News for all things Subtle, is happy to reveal that the tune is called “Girl Next Door.” “It’s a pop-country song,” Kaling told us, saying there are elements of Carrie Underwood and Taylor Swift in the ditty. (The video is based specifically on Swift’s 2009 hit “You Belong With Me,” in which Swift plays, as Kaling puts it, “both the girl next door and the hot, bitchy girl.”)
