“We wrote this song really quickly, late one night and often the songs that come quickest are written from the gut and the heart, not with the head,” the band said in a statement.

“We wanted the melody to feel like a hymn, to give the confessional lyrics weight despite being wrapped up as a pop song.”

They continued: “It’s about accepting vulnerability as a man and knowing it’s OK to be broken. There’s never been a more pressing time to spread the message that it’s OK to not be OK.”

The full tracklisting for the album is as follows:
