The track arrived Thursday along with an interview between the singer and Apple Music’s Zane Lowe. The singer told Lowe that “Moment” was the first single she completed for her upcoming project.
She also opened up about how coming out as bisexual has made her more comfortable and vulnerable in her music, “Before, I felt like I had to cater to what society would feel like is correct by using pronouns like ‘he’ or ‘him’ in music. [Now] I feel like I can either not use them or say ‘she’ or ‘her’. I feel a little bit more comfortable expressing that. And I’ve had the conversations with family, so it goes deeper than just music too, just feeling comfortable in my own skin.”
