As previously reported, Florence Welch seemed to tease fans earlier this week with the suggestion that she’d covered the classic No Doubt hit “Just a Girl.” Well, the wait for it is over, because the song is out now.

Florence + The Machine’s take on the classic track is featured in the just-released trailer for season 2 of Showtime’s Yellowjackets. Their version is very much Florence + The Machine, giving the song a haunting vibe that slowly builds.

“I’m such a huge fan of Yellowjackets and this era of music, and this song especially had a huge impact on me growing up, so I was thrilled to be asked to interpret it in a ‘deeply unsettling’ way for the show,” says Welch. “We tried to really add some horror elements to this iconic song to fit the tone of the show. And as someone whose first musical love was pop punk and Gwen Stefani it was a dream job.” 

Season 2 of Yellowjackets premieres March 24.
