“‘Bad At Love’ was one of the very first original songs to be written for the project,” Smith said of the new track. “I think ultimately the song was born from my own romantic relationships. When I love someone, I love them fully, and sometimes the passion can be too much. I always know when it’s time to move on.”

He continued: “That being said, I am extremely grateful that I am still very good friends with the ladies I have loved, and still love, to this day.”

Myers added: “‘Bad At Love’ was one of the first original songs we wrote for this album…lyrically Brent was writing about things in his life that maybe we wouldn’t really touch on with Shinedown and I think it came out to be an incredibly naked and honest song.”

Speaking on the Eilish cover, he said: “And I think ‘Bad Guy’ turned out very cool – it’s a nice bluesy version of the song.”
