"[It] is one part in the centre of a long narrative that tells the story of two people in love despite the forces trying to keep them apart," she said in a statement.
"On its own, the song is about two impatient young lovers, but in the context of the Hopeless Fountain Kingdom universe, the stakes are much higher for these two star-crossed lovers."
