Could they be any cuter?

Less than a month after finally going public about their four year relationship, Hayley Kiyoko and former Bachelor star Becca Tilley just did their first joint interview as part of an Amazon live stream — and dished on Hayley’s new album in the process.

Rumors of the two being in relationship had circled for years, and Hayley’s new Bachelorette-themed music video, “For the Girls,” which sees Becca herself stepping out of the limo to compete for Hayley’s hand at the end finally gave them the opportunity to confirm it.

“It got to a point where I felt so much support and love and when we started talking about the music video, 'For the Girls,' it just felt like a natural progression for us to share our love story and our relationship,” Becca said. “It wasn’t a whole planned thing… It just felt like the right time for both of us.”

Hayley released two solo singles plus a collab with fellow queer artist Fletcher last year, but “For the Girls” is the first properly promoting her upcoming sophomore album, Panorama. (The other two singles, “Found My Friends” and “Chance” will also be released on this album.)

And though “For the Girls” is more of a fun summer song aimed at, well, the girls in a general sense, Hayley isn’t shy about admitting a number of the songs coming up on Panorama are actually about her relationship.

“There are a lot of songs on the album that have been inspired by Becca,” she said. “It’s funny, sometimes I’ll play her a song and she’ll listen to it and be like, ‘Oh my gosh, I love this song. Who’s this song about?’ and I’ll be like, ‘You!’”

The “Girls Like Girls” singer elaborated by saying much of the album is “inspired by navigating love and a relationship,” and how even being in a “healthy, wonderful relationship” means you still have to put in the work — and there’s plenty of relatable lyrical interest to mine from that.

You can watch Hayley and Becca's full livestream on Amazon now.

Panorama will be released on July 29 and is currently available for pre-save and pre-order.
