"This is a very layered and very deep record for me," the singer/songwriter explained. "It looks into my childhood and examines who I am at this point in my life... This is gonna sound terrifying, but there is a strong theme of Christianity on the record. When I was growing up, Christianity was drilled into my head so intensely...There’s also a lot of stuff about race and specifically things that have happened to me."

Hynes also referred to the new album as "probably the most relatable thing I’ve ever done." Read the full interview here.
