slowthai said of the meaning the album title “ugly”, “I think you turn that can negative into a positive so I've been about my whole career. I think we use the word and the terminology is obviously subjective to the person but that to me the things that I believe are the best and the most beautiful and is that things that the cliche and beautiful to most people, they kind of veer me away. I think we should stop going with what the social norm is and just do what we think is beautiful. It's just stands for you got to love yourself. That every day you got to look in the mirror and even if you feel ugly, it turned into that positive. For me, I wanted to do the thing that no one wants to do. And go where no one's been. And the places where you're the most uncomfortable are the places where you should thrive. And as an artist, that's where you belong. The moment you feel. You found yourself I think that's when you're the most lost.”
