Florence + The Machine released a cover of the No Doubt classic “Just A Girl.” Florence Welch and company cut their version of the 1995 hit for the Showtime Emmy-nominated drama Yellowjackets ahead of the season two premiere on Friday, March 24.
The Gwen Stefani co-write “Just A Girl” served as the lead single for No Doubt’s landmark 1995 album, Tragic Kingdom. Florence Welch spoke about reimagining the song — which she co-produced with Mark Bowen of IDLES — for Yellowjackets.
“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. 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.”
