Tegan And Sara Premiere New Song 'Boyfriend' (A Top Story)
Sara Quin had the following to say 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 told host Matt Wilkinson (via Radio.com).
"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 sort of, you know, tie it down. I wanted her to make it official with me."
She adds, "I think that's pretty relatable. Obviously, being gay, there's sort of a bit of a gender twist in the song, and I get that that sometimes doesn't seem immediately relatable to everybody, whether they're straight or whatever. "But this idea, you know, 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, that's what the song is about."
