He’s still riding the success of his smash hit ‘Maniac’, which became a massive viral sensation, and as he continues to make a name for himself on the global music space, Conan Gray shows off a new side of his artistry as he premieres his new single ‘Overdrive’.
Conan describes the new single’s message of optimistic escapism, “I wrote ‘Overdrive’ to escape reality. I’ve spent the entire past year moping around alone in my house, I wanted to make something to get me to dance around my house. Something to belt into the showerhead and lose your worries to. Every time I turned it on to tweak production or change lyrics, I’d always just end up singing along and forgetting why I was so stressed— which is exactly what I hope this song is for the people who listen. Just a moment of reckless abandon and catharsis in a world filled with inhibition.”
The star is set to premiere the track’s official music video soon which he personally wrote, directed, shot, and edited, alongside frequent collaborator Dillon Matthew. Right now, he’s prepping more music for release very soon this year.
Long before closing in on over 3 billion streams in three years, achieving platinum singles, and attracting unanimous applause courtesy of everyone from Sir Elton John to Taylor Swift, Conan Gray turned his bedroom into an escape from the darkness around him and a de facto creative hive.
