Tegan And Sara have premiered “Boyfriend” on Beats 1, and the lead single off their forthcoming album Love You To Death indicates the bright synth-pop of Heartthrob was no passing phase. The verses are all sleek, slightly retro electro-love, but the chorus is a burst of digital and emotional fireworks.

“It’s a pretty straightforward pop song about a relationship that I was getting into with a girl who had never dated a girl before,” Sara Quin told Beats 1. “We’ve all been in that situation where we really like someone and want to make it official and they’re not ready. That’s what the song is about.”

LYTD drops June 3. Hear the first single below.
