Speaking about 'Break The Rules', which will be released on October 5th, the singer said: "The song is inspired by a lot of the things I was listening to whilst in Sweden at the end of last year. I spent about a month making a punk record and covering songs by Swedish punk bands like Snuffed By The Yakuza. This song was written when I came out of the other side of that punk phase and translated it into something more pop.”
