"Your happy and hippy," she said of the song. "It's laid-back but it's hopeful. It's a record that... gives me such a great feeling when I listen to it.

"The lyrics are very hopeful and positive, but it's about love and... a little different to what people would expect, I think. I'm excited about that," she continued. "I'm excited to surprise them sonically."
