If Not Now, When? is all about the romance, says Boyd: "It's about love and finding art and success in love. I never know what I'm going to be writing about until I'm actually writing about it. It's what's relevant in my heart and mind. There's definitely a romantic undertone and overtone."
That sentiment was partly inspired by his girlfriend, who he's been spending lots of time with during the band's hiatus. Another inspiration has been enrolling in art classes at Otis College of Art and Design in L.A.: "It definitely inspired me through the process of being humbled. I'm was surrounded by 20 year olds who are super hungry and talented. It helped challenge me to rise to different level, a different occasion in crafting a song."
