"It's really quite earnest. It's quite real," Matty Healy told Zane Lowe on Beats 1 earlier today. "I don't really look back very much either in that regard, like properly sentimentally. So it was nice to do that. It came quite late in the record and it was just quite easy because in its simplicity it was easily executable and it's quite an obvious emotional quality to it. It came quite easy that song, but I think I just wanted to write a love letter to friendship, as opposed to every love song being about our romantic relationships. I think that our friendships are obviously our most formative relationships. So shout out to the homies."

Notes on a Conditional Form is — barring any further delays — due out next Friday, May 22. The British pop band have already shared a handful of singles from the record, most recently the Phoebe Bridgers-featuring "Jesus Christ 2005 God Bless America" and the sax-heavy, Huey Lewis-esque "If You're Too Shy (Let Me Know)."
