The Capitol Records-released effort is an acknowledgement of how the New Jersey native feels about love, from the “blind declaration” sung in her #1 hit “Without Me” to telling her fans she’s taking responsibility for the “not necessarily safe” positions she’s been in.
When speaking about the overall project, the 24-year-old noted “I sat there to make this album and I was like, ‘Yeah, I’m going to make an angry album.’” She continued: “And I wasn’t mad. It’s exciting. … I’m closing a chapter in this record that I feel very much like I needed to put the final word on, put the nail in the coffin, if you will. Graveyard, marry it.”
She told Lowe, “In some ways it’s a metaphor. It’s about like loving someone to death, kind of. And then in other ways it’s actually pretty literal. There’s a lot of moments in the song that are pretty literal, which was kind of scary to write about. But you know me, I find the scary thing and I do it.” Watch the entire interview below.
