NME‘s cover star back in February, Owusu explained that the lyrical concept of the two black dogs which appear throughout the album, representing depression and racism.
“Obviously, I knew of the black dog as a metaphor for depression,” he said, “But then it struck me – I’ve literally been called a black dog in my life with the racial slur connotation.
“The reason I chose these two concepts is they’re ideas that have been weighing on me for such a big portion of my life. It’s a see-saw, they’re both co-dependent on each other a lot of the time.”
