He said of the song;
"[Youth] is the most important song on the album. I was touring around Europe when the events of Manchester and London happened, it was very overwhelming. I wanted to write something but it had to be about the feeling for us as a generation when one of these things happens. So I wrote a song about our youth, a feeling that can’t be taken away from us."
