Blossoms frontman Tom Ogden has revealed their song 'Honey Sweet' is about his ex-girlfriend - but he hasn't told her
Blossoms frontman Tom Ogden hasn't told his ex-girlfriend their song 'Honey Sweet' is about her.
The 23-year-old rocker has no idea if his former flame is aware that the track is about their relationship, but he's not fazed by it as he's been dating someone new for over a year and he doesn't speak "negatively" about her on the tune from their 2016 self-titled debut LP.
In an interview with the Metro newspaper, he explained: "It's about my ex-girlfriend. We weren't speaking at the point I wrote the song but she's probably heard it and knows it's about her.
"It doesn't affect me either way if she's heard it or not.
"I don't think I'm saying anything negative."
The 'Charlemagne' hitmaker is keeping his mystery new girl a secret, but says she doesn't work in the music business.
He added: "I've got a girlfriend and I've been with her for nearly a year. I met her last summer but I'm not going to tell you who she is.
"I've known her for a while and she doesn't work in the industry."
Meanwhile, the singer - who is joined by Charlie Salt, Josh Dewhurst, Joe Donovan and Myles Kellock in the indie group - has said they are not bothered that they didn't pick up the British Breakthrough gong, which went to Rag 'n' Bone Man, at last month's BRIT Awards as he doesn't think winning it would have had much of an impact on their career going forward.
He said: "It's not going to affect us, the fact we didn't win. We didn't have our heart set on it but, once you're there, you do get a bit competitive."
Blossoms will support their idols The Stone Roses at Wembley on June 17.
They will be joined by Sleaford Mods and The G-O-D.
