First Aid Kit have released their first single from the follow up to 2014's 'Stay Gold' album.

The Swedish sisters, Johanna and Klara Soderberg, explained that 'It's a Shame' came about during a writing trip to Los Angeles last spring.

"We went to Los Angeles last spring and spent five weeks there writing," they said in a press release. "It was a tough time for the both of us. We were in this beautiful sunny place, but mostly felt sad and lonely. ‘It’s A Shame’ is a song about the emptiness and desperation you feel after a relationship has come to an end. How you will go to great lengths just to numb the pain and feel less lonely.”

It's the first song from their forthcoming fourth studio album, release date TBC.
