The new single follows last year's Chrismas EP and Hackman's debut album We Slept At Last. It features London-based risers The Big Moon as a bolshy backing outfit, with alt-J's Charlie Andrew on production duties.

"'Boyfriend' is payback for all those times I’ve been interrupted mid-snog by some seedy wanker asking to join in," Hackman says of the track. It's a robust maneouvre away from her folkier roots, with chunky, scraped riffs and a gutsy chorus.

"Boyfriend" is released 31 March via AMF Records.
