Smith was a guest on Michelle Visage’s Rule Breakers podcast. Talking about “Unholy”, which they described as a “queer Bonnie & Clyde” track, Smith said Petras’ part didn’t initially feel right.

“It was such a powerful day. It was a room full of some of the biggest pop writers in the world,” they said. “All straight guys. And me and Kim were there. And her part of the song was starting to go down this road that felt a bit… it just didn’t feel right? It honestly didn’t feel queer. It didn’t feel like us.”

“I remember, it was like four or five o’clock in the afternoon. She had been recording for hours. And me and her just had this chat and we were like, ‘No, no, no. We need to scrap everything we’ve done, and rewrite it,’” Smith recalled.

“And she went in and it was unbelievable. She basically wrote the entire melody in one take, and then we came in and we worked on the lyrics for her verse. And it was just so fun.”

Gloria is released on January 27, 2023. Check out the artwork below.
