Don't Delete the Kisses" is a song by English alternative rock band Wolf Alice from their upcoming second studio album, Visions of a Life. It was released on 5 July 2017 through Dirty Hit as the album's second single.
The band announced on July 3 that they'll be premiering the second single off Visions of a Life on Beats 1 on July 5. It was released after its premiere to streaming services and digital download. In an interview with Matt Wilkinson of Beats 1, the band described the song as "the most synth-heavy tune" they've made. Lead vocalist Ellie Rowsell also said: "I kind of wanted to make one of those head out the window on a long drive tunes. And I wanted to try my hand at like a hold-nothing-back love song. That was my thoughts. But other than that I just kinda let it go where it wanted to go… I just think if you hold back it will sound worse won't it?". Regarding the sound of the album, they added: "I think hopefully when people hear the whole thing it won't be so all over the place. There are things that tie the 'Yuk Foos' and 'Don't Delete The Kisses' together if you know what I mean. There's hopefully something for everyone. I too struggle to define it"
In an interview with The Fader, Rowsell stated that she wanted to write a love song, but was "not going to hold back and make it discreet. I wanted to make it really obvious what I'm talking about. I was going to keep it sad, in the vein of the first couple of verses, and then I was like Nah, it's too depressing to have a love story that doesn't work out. I'm gonna Hollywood it, and make it happy."
