In an interview with NME, Li said she saw her albums as a trilogy, with Youth Novels as the first chapter and this one ending the story. She also explained how a breakup has had a major impact on the writing of the record, which can be heard on “Gunshot.”

“It’s always about me and the guilt and the shame and the hurt and the pride and the confusion of being a woman,” she said.
