Frontman John O'Callaghan said of the song, “I hope this song moves into a room in your head. Sonically, you can take the song however you will, but the lyrics hold a special place in my heart. 'Sticky' is about that person or feeling you just can't shake. I certainly hope it stays with you.”
The album comprises of 10-track and is their first LP in three years.
He said, “This album is quite literally a real-time dive into the duality of love and anxiety in my life. They are such opposing feelings, but they coexist all the time in my head. Life is a funny thing, but I believe everything is exactly as it should be.”
He continued, “For my two cents, XOXO is all of the best parts of The Maine. Just the right amount of ambition and nostalgia. It can be an easy listen or a hard look into the mirror. I hope it's whatever you need it to be.”
