In [100 Letters], I tell the story of the relationship from start to finish. I give away the ending, like the prologue. And then I went, ‘Oh my God. I love Romeo and Juliet because I feel like I’m living it. I’m going through this relationship where I feel like a version of myself and a version of himself, are dying for the sake of wanting to make our love work.’ And then I started trying to write other music and I realized, ‘I don’t know what to write about. I don’t know who I am’. I had a message on Badlands, and then in starting this new record and going through this breakup, I realized how much of my identity I had given to my partner.
