Speaking of the track, James Sunderland said: “’Songs for The Weekend’ was born last winter at Brett’s lake house in Idaho. He was backing his car up and there was this great backup tone/sound, kind of like a high pitched buzz. I got a little obsessed with it so we recorded it on my phone and threw it in the session and the song was born. You can hear this sound at the beginning of the song and throughout the choruses.

They went on to say, “Unlike many of our songs, this one was written by the two of us in Brett’s cabin overlooking the lake at sunset. It came from a moment of pure fun – we just had fun with it and didn’t overthink it. The main line, “we’re just writing songs for the weekend”, actually started out as a joke about writing songs for artist, The Weeknd. It developed from there into a song about how we don’t matter, in a good way. Sometimes we take ourselves too seriously and can forget that we only make music. This song is an ode to the beauty of our non-essential. What we do matters, but it really doesn’t. And that’s liberating and kind of amazing for us.
