Swedish sister duo First Aid Kit have shared a brand new song, “You Are the Problem Here,” in honor of today’s International Women’s Day. The song is in support of women’s rights and tackles rape. The stand alone single will be released digitally this Friday (March 10), with all proceeds going to Women for Women International. The band are working on a new album (the follow-up to 2014’s, but this song won’t be on it. Listen below.

First Aid Kit’s Klara and Johanna Söderberg have issued this statement about the song: “Today is the International Women’s Day and the theme of the year is #BeBoldForChange. ‘You Are the Problem Here’ isn’t a typical First Aid Kit-song. It’s angry and direct. It’s a song written out of despair. After reading about yet another rape case where the perpetrator was handed a sentence which did not at all reflect the severity of his crime we felt upset and vengeful. We were, and are, sick of living in a society where the victims of rape are often blamed for the horrible thing that has been done to them. Our message is clear and should not be controversial in the least: if you rape, you are the problem. Alcohol is not the problem. So called ‘youth culture’ is not the problem. You are. And you always have a choice.”
