Platinum selling, pop prince Conan Gray returns this week with the release of his new track Astronomy – a haunting and heartfelt power ballad that lyrically addresses the often painful realisation that a once loving relationship is slowly coming to an end.
Produced by Daniel Nigro (Freya Ridings, Lewis Capaldi, Kylie Minogue) and serving as the follow up to Overdrive, the single is set to feature on Gray’s eagerly awaited second studio album, scheduled for release later this year.
“’Astronomy’ is about that slow, painful, often denial inducing process of growing apart from somebody. That moment when all of a sudden you look at that person you’ve loved for years and realise you no longer know them. That you two exist on two different worlds now.” Conan says of the track.
“I find the worst heartbreaks happen slowly. No blowout fight and slamming doors and showing up on doorsteps while it’s raining. Just a gradual decaying of love with nothing left to do to stop it from slipping away. There’s no explanation, nobody to blame. That hurts the most.”
