First Aid Kit release new song “Angel,” working on fifth album

Swedish folk duo First Aid Kit have been working on their fifth album, and while most details on that are still TBA, they did just release their first original single since 2019, "Angel." It's a well-considered folky pop song with lyrics showcasing their vulnerability: "Give me love and give me compassion/Sell forgiveness and give me some passion/I love you, even if you don't love me," sisters Johanna and Klara Söderberg sing over the chorus. With "Angel" comes a music video directed by frequent collaborator Mats Udd. Watch it below.
