The crunchy break-up anthem marks the third song to be lifted from Girl In Red’s second album ‘I’m Doing It Again Baby!’, which is due for release on April 12 via Columbia (pre-order here). It follows ‘Too Much’ and the record’s title track.

On ‘You Need Me Now?’, Girl In Red – real name Marie Ulven Ringheim – calls out an ex’s bad behaviour and “games“, singing: “I’m tired of waiting around/ Letting you let me down/ I’m done being yours.

Later, Girl In Red and Carpenter link up in a spoken word interlude. “You know what would be really fucking cool on this? Sabrina!” the former says. “Like if we could get Sabrina on this. Oh my God, like seriously.”

Carpenter interjects: “Oh my God, you’re so right. I’m going to sing now.” Delivering on her promise, the US singer then provides a verse before she and Girl In Red join forces in the final chorus and outro.

“I just want to sit down and make a new record,” Girl In Red explained at the time. “I think records are pretty hot, man. Records are sexy. Putting out a record is such a big statement nowadays.”

She continued: “You gotta have something that’s worth checking out and I’m lowkey tired of singles. I am lowkey tired of just getting a song here and there.

“I just want to get a body of work from someone. With anything in the Girl In Red project I just want to be thoughtful. With the music, I just want to put out a record because that’s what I want.”
