The “Fine Line” singer performed at Coachella in April, debuting the song “Boyfriends,” which will be on his upcoming album, Harry’s House. Harry told Apple Music that he actually had a rough demo of the song ready while he was finishing his sophomore album, 2019’s Fine Line. Instead of rushing it, he concluded that the song would have its time. Ben Harper joined the song on the guitar and the story of it started to come into focus.
“I think the good part of [“Boyfriends”] is that it is everything,” Harry explained. “It’s both acknowledging my own behavior. It’s looking at behavior that I’ve witnessed. I grew up with a sister, so it’s watching her date people and watching friends date people, and people don’t treat each other very nicely sometimes.”
He added, “It was one of those really quick, just say what you think of boyfriends.”
Harry’s House is slated to release on May 20.
