Speaking to us for the cover of our April 2022 issue about the song, Orville explained, “It’s advice that someone gave me, because I used to be someone who found it hard to be vulnerable and say what I want and need. I found it hard to be kind to myself, to go easy on myself, to encourage myself, all of those things, for a very long time. For most of my life, actually. And I finally learned how to, so I guess that song is me sort of encouraging someone else to do the same.”
