Conan Gray Announces New Album ‘Found Heaven’

Conan Gray has announced that his forthcoming third studio album, Found Heaven, will arrive on April 5 via Republic Records.

Produced by Max Martin (The Weeknd, Adele, Ariana Grande), Greg Kurstin (Adele, Beck, Sia, Pink), and Shawn Everett (Kacey Musgraves, The Killers), the album sets the stage for Conan’s new era.

To celebrate the release, Gray will unveil a new single entitled “Lonely Dancers” on February 9. Found Heaven will include the forthcoming single, “Lonely Dancers,” in addition to the previously released “Killing Me,” “Winner,” and “Never Ending Song.”

In 2023, Conan graced the stage of the Global Citizen Festival in New York’s Central Park, performed for nearly 300,000 people at Lollapalooza across Latin America, and almost 40,000 people at Outside Lands. Continuing to make fashion headlines, Conan wore a custom Balmain look while attending the 2023 Met Gala.

“Winner” arrived in August of 2023. On the cut he sings, “Now there’s no one/Who ever has done better/At making me feel worse,” he sings over the anthemic instrumental. “Now you really are the winner/Yeah, there’s nothing/That ever did quite kill me/More than what you did/Now you really are the winner/Take a bow cos you’re the winner.”

“I wrote this song at 2am,” Gray explained in a press release. “Everything at the piano just spilled out all at once. it was a moment where I finally felt like, “fine. great job. you did it. you hurt me more than anybody ever could hurt me.” and it oddly felt nice.

“I see now that there is a certain freedom that comes from recognizing that you’ve been hurt. in no longer running, and just facing the fact that ‘you win. you hurt me.’ I hope this song helps people find a little piece of that freedom.”

This new project will arrive after Gray released his second album, Superache, in 2022. That record saw him reunite with Dan Nigro, with whom he worked on his debut, Kid Krow, and set a standard for Gen Z’s emotional outpouring through candid songwriting and vulnerability.
