The lyrics for his new single read: "Brand new places I'll choose and I'll go, I know / Embracin' this news I behold unfolding / I know, I know, I know it don’t feel like it’s time / But I look back at this moment, I'll see that I'm fine."
In a follow-up tweet, the rising star made a reference to his newly released EP 7's artwork, which has rainbows drawn on some of the buildings.
