Brake squeals - not the pad

My left rear brake squeals when brake pressure is applied, but it’s not the pad. The pads have been replaced. The squeal existed both before and after the pads were replaced. Possible causes?

I can affect the squeal with the amount of pressure I apply to the brakes. I’m guessing there’s something on the surface of the rotor? The squeal actually seems a bit louder now that there are new pads.
