The album title came from a cab journey in Belgium where Wolf Alice were recording Blue Weekend
. It was a sunny, blue-sky day and as they drove Rowsell suggested to drummer Joel Amey that they go to a nearby forest "on the next blue weekend."
"Blue is a nice color, but it also means sad," Rowsell said to NME
. "And I often think the weekend is so fun, but lots of drama takes place then so sometimes it's the catalyst for your downfall."
