is the debut solo album from Sofie, the DJ/musician who got her start interning at the indie label Stones Throw Records and becoming a talent scout before forging her own recording career. "Truth Of The Matter" is a retro-styled contemplation of a changing relationship.
Sofie, who sang a stripped-down version of the song for the Songfacts Podcast
in 2021, explained that the meaning has changed over time. She said: "'Truth Of The Matter' was a song about a friendship / relationship, but as it's grown as time has passed since I wrote the song, I've found it uncanny as to how many instances it can pertain to. We can break it down... 'Truth of the matter is it didn't always used to be like this,' which is so applicable to so many life scenarios because nothing ever stays the same. Then it's also about how people's interactions with you will inevitably shift over time. Situations change, circumstances change, and as a result, interaction is also going to be very transitory, so that's really what that song is all about."
