It is a truth universally acknowledged that there are few more nerve-wracking experiences than listening to the comeback single from one of your youth's most seminal pop groups. Luckily the official comeback track from 90s UK girl group All Saints, as we promised last month, is a certified low-key banger. The ladies' killer harmonies are underscored by lush guitars, smooth synths, and some particularly sassy lyrics. 

"It's about conversations I was having with Nic at the time when she was going through personal things in her life, and as a friend I was just inspired to write about it," Shaznay recently told us about the single. "When you write songs it's all about feeling." At the time Nicole was going through a particularly brutal divorce with Liam Gallagher of Oasis, and the track is not about filing paperwork — it's about the exact moment the singer was informed that her husband was a serial-cheating d-bag. "It's about a moment," says Shaz. "A phone call." It's basically the opposite of "Bootie Call."

Read our exclusive comeback interview with Mel, Shaznay, Natalie, and Nicole here, and preorder the album here ahead of its April 8 release. It includes a song called "Ratchet Behavior," in case you were having any hesitations.
