Swedish band Girl Scout have returned with their new single “I Just Needed You To Know” as their first release of the year.

Girl Scout are back with their first music since the release of their 2023 debut EPs Real Life Human Garbage, and Granny Music.

“‘I Just Needed You To Know’ was born during a spontaneous jam session in the middle of rehearsing for tour,” says vocalist/guitarist Emma Jansson. “Starting with Viktor toying with the opening riff, almost the entire song was just the band playing in a room with the mics rolling. We wanted the raw energy of the song to remain, so not much has been done to it.”

“The phrase “it is what it is” is one that I hear a lot amongst the older generations,” she adds about the lyrical side of the song. “To me, it feels like a way to avoid acknowledging hard times or difficult feelings. It’s such a stifling phrase. What if that’s not enough? What if I want more than to grit my teeth and move on? I think there is a clear generational divide when it comes to the language surrounding mental health, and the willingness to understand the causes behind it.”

"I Just Needed You To Know" is out now.
