Tegan and Sara are releasing a new album, Love You to Death, on June 3 via Warner Bros. Now the sisterly duo have shared the album’s first single, “Boyfriend,” which was teased last week. It premiered on Beats 1 radio today. Listen below.

Sara Quinn spoke to Beats 1’s Matt Wilkinson about the track: “It’s a pretty straightforward pop song about a relationship that I was getting into with a girl who had never dated a girl before. She had a guy that she was sort of seeing, and we used to joke around that she was treating me like her boyfriend, and I was trying to get her to tie it down. I wanted her to make it official with me. And I think that’s pretty relatable: obviously, being gay, the sort of gender twist in the song. I get that that sometimes doesn’t seem immediately relatable to everybody, whether they’re straight or whatever. But [it’s] this idea that we’ve all been in that situation where we really like someone and we want to make it official, and they’re not ready.”

Love You to Death is the follow-up to 2013’s Heartthrob, which probably featured the Quin sister’s biggest song yet, “Closer,” and brought them an even bigger audience. Greg Kurstin (Adele, Sia, Beck, Ellie Goulding) produced Love You to Death, which is the duo’s eighth album.
