Kicking off the New Year with very big news, buzzing 21-year-old bedroom pop singer-songwriter Conan Gray reveals the details for his anxiously awaited full-length debut, Kid Krow, arriving in stores and at all digital retailers March 20th.
The pre-order includes instant grat downloads of previously released fan favorites such as current single “Maniac,” “Comfort Crowd,” and “Checkmate” as well as the brand-new song “The Story”—just unveiled today. Stream “The Story” Here and Check Out “The Story” Lyric Video Here!
“The Story” lives up to its title as Gray’s most candid and confessional composition yet. Over solo acoustic guitar, he depicts the trauma and tragedy of the suburbs, bullying, sexual repression, and finally escape to a better life in vivid fashion. He opens up more than ever and promises, “It’s not the end of the story…”
He commented, “The record is a study of how I perceive the world. I talk a lot about my friends and people I’ve met touring over the past year. It’s me. I’m not the coolest person, but the album is me accepting the fact I’m weird and I don’t need to be anybody else. It’s also a chance to encourage others to embrace who they are and be unapologetic about it.”
As the story goes, Conan Gray found a way out of his tiny Texas hometown by building his own musical world from nothing more than Garage Band and a cheap microphone taped to a lamp.
