Conan Gray Releases New Song “People Watching”
- American singer-songwriter Conan Gray has released a new song “People Watching” with an accompanying music video.
He wrote the song with American singer-songwriter Julia Michaels, and Dan Nigro, who also produced the track.
The song will appear on his upcoming sophomore album “Worlds Apart”.
“'People Watching' is for all my fellow lonely people who wonder what it's like to be deeply in love,” Conan Gray said of the song in a statement. “I've never dated anyone in my entire life, so I've spent so many years of my life watching perfect couples sit in cafes and share coffee, whispering sweet nothings to each other. I can't help but fantasize about what it must be like to feel that emotion.”
He continued, “There's nothing I love more than watching them exist in their little world, where seemingly nobody else exists to them. The song's lyrics are things I've eavesdropped off of times I used to spend people watching at the cafe in college. Studying them living their lives lets me live vicariously through them, in a way.”
- The video was directed by Joe Mischo. “The best place on earth to people watch is the cafe. The perfect couples talking about their mornings, students studying, sweet couples who've sat at the same table for decades. It's wonderful,” Conan Gray said of the video. “My best friend Ashley and I used to joke about the idea of us working at a cafe together, how terrible we'd be at our job because we'd get so distracted staring at people. So for the 'People Watching' video, I brought Ashley to LA and thought I'd play the situation out, really show how much of a beautiful disaster it would be if I were to work at a cafe as I always say I should've.”
