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.
â€œShe 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 thatâ€™s pretty relatable. Obviously being gay and the bit of a gender twist in the song,” Sara explained. “I get that doesnâ€™t seem immediately relatable to everybody whether theyâ€™re straight or whatever. But this idea that weâ€™ve all been in that situation where we really like someone and want to make it official and theyâ€™re not ready, thatâ€™s what the song is about.â€
Love You To Death is set to drop June 3.
