In this week’s Cover, discusses her upcoming debut album ‘American Hero’, due out on Interscope. She told NME that the song fills a void in pop music: “You don’t hear that many songs about queer sex like that. It’s my sense of normal, but I suppose to the outside world, it represents much, much more. So in a way, I’m happy I can be that representation, that I can put out a rock song about lesbian sex.”

Elsewhere, she discusses co-signs from Olivia Rodrigo and Billie Eilish, her heritage and more.
