When asked what ‘Stupid’ is about, the Stockholm producers say: “It is about that feeling when you’ve met someone that you deep down know is gonna get you burned. It’s about that time when you choose to ignore the little thoughtful person on your shoulder saying – ‘She’s gonna hurt you, and I’ll hate to say I told you so’. Looking back, you can’t help but feeling stupid. So s.t.u.p.i.d.”
