Tegan and Sara finally released their first single “Boyfriend” off their forthcoming eighth studio album Love You To Death. The Quin sisters premiered the track on Beats 1 Radio.
“Boyfriend” is about a love triangle that Sara found herself in when she was getting into a relationship with a girl who had never dated a girl before, bt was still seeing another man.
“She had a guy she was sort of seeing and we used to joke around she was treating me like her boyfriend and I was trying to get her to tie it down. I think that’s pretty relatable. Obviously being gay and the bit of a gender twist in the song,” Sara explained. “I get that doesn’t seem immediately relatable to everybody whether they’re straight or whatever. But this idea that we’ve all been in that situation where we really like someone and want to make it official and they’re not ready, that’s what the song is about.”
Love You To Death is set to drop June 3.
