- “good 4 u”
“It's a super angsty song inspired by some of my favorite pop punk bands. It's one of my favorite songs on the record and I really hope you love it. Oh, and there's also a sick music video for it. My friend Petra Collins directed it. We wanted to pay homage to the iconic feminist camp horror movies we love.”
“I wrote most of 'raitor' on my bedroom floor in Salt Lake City. I sort of forgot about it until I sent a bunch of voice memos to Dan [Nigro] and he said he liked this. We finished it up together and I really like the way it turned out. It sort of feels like an old country song to me, which I'm obsessed with.”
“When I came up with 'drivers license,' I was going through a heartbreak that was so confusing to me, so multifaceted…Putting all those feelings into a song made everything seem so much simpler and clearer—and at the end of the day, I think that's really the whole purpose of songwriting. There's nothing like sitting at the piano in my bedroom and writing a really sad song. It's truly my favorite thing in the world.”
“I had this like line in my phone written for like a while 'when she's with you, do you get deja vu?' I was in the studio with Dan, and we were trying to write like a sad song, but it just wasn't coming. So he's like 'What else do you have?' and I was like 'I have this like line written' and he really liked it. So we kind of wrote it together, and created this whole like world. I really love painting pictures with songs, so we've tried to be really vivid with the lyrics.”
