What To Expect on Conan Gray’s Superache
With NPR‘s Susan Davis, the Gen-Z singer-songwriter chats about life, love, the new album and its inspirations. However, Gray strikes an interesting distinction between Kid Krow, his debut effort, and Superache, his follow-up. Rather than overdramatizing his heartbreak, he tells it how it is, making Superache more relatable and vulnerable with straightforward lyricism. He says:
You know, my first album was just my introduction. It was just me saying like, hi; like, I’m Conan. I’ve been heartbroken once when I was 17, you know? Like – and it’s kind of just a first impression. But with this album, I was like, oh, so I actually have to talk about some of the other things, I guess. And that’s what made it feel like I was like – like, it was really a miserable process, to be honest, of, like, having to open up. I’m such a closed-off person a lot of time, and I think it just kind of felt, like, I guess, scary, intimidating.
Over the past year, Gray started releasing singles in promotion for Superache with the anxious first single, “Astronomy.” Gray said the single is about how he fears he and his friend Ashley will part ways– and will do anything to prevent that from happening. Since then, he promoted the four album singles: “People Watching,” “Jigsaw,” “Memories,” and doe-eyed “Yours.” However, the 80s-synth “Telepath” did not make the cut even with its flamboyant energy. He surprised fans with the shameless, self-deprecating and playful “Disaster” music video on the album’s release day.
