His newest single is a song that explores the after-effects of losing someone–knowing you have to leave and let go but are not able to bring yourself to do so. 

I’m not yours/And I can’t change your mind/But you’re still mine,” Conan wrote in the song. 

GQ, a popular and well-known men’s magazine, even called Gray the “new Prince of sad songs.” Many of his fans at Pascack Hills agree with this statement. 

“I love Conan Gray’s new song because it can relate to many people,” said Hills freshman Gail Gluck, “Listening to this song leaves a sad impression on people. Although the song is happy and about remembering the good times…the rhythm underneath the song resembles the beats underneath most sad songs.”

“Superache” is said to encompass that; remembering the good times while trying to get over the pain that lingers for years. 

“A superache is something that hurts you so much, it lingers with you for years after,” Gray said in an interview with Rolling Stone, “It’s something that can only be healed through years of dramatic mourning, self-sabotage, songwriting, crying to your friends. It’s a super ache.” 

So mark your calendars and keep your tissues handy; June 24 marks the day that Gray’s sophomore album will be revealed to the world!
