Gearing up for a massive year, platinum selling, chart topping, pop singer and songwriter pop singer songwriter Conan Gray unveils a brand-new single entitled “Jigsaw”.


Listen to “Jigsaw” HERE via Republic Records.


Conan comments on the new release: “I wrote jigsaw originally as a bit of a diary entry rant for myself. I’d spent my entire life contorting myself and changing everything I used to be in order to make everybody happy. I was so used to trying to please everyone that, when it came to love, I started to do the same. I thought maybe if I dress a certain way, act a certain way, do my hair the way you’ll like, then maybe you’ll finally love me. It didn’t work, obviously. By the end of it all it I ended up looking in the mirror and barely recognizing my rearranged and twisted reflection. I hope that jigsaw is a bit of a warning to people. That destroying yourself to win somebody’s love will only leave you empty on the other side. Because in the end, that person won’t love you, just the version of you that you made for them. Instead choose to become somebody that you love.”


Conan who has always been known for his creative dexterity, drew the single artwork for “Jigsaw.”


Marking his first new music of 2022, “Jigsaw” paves the way for his anxiously awaited second full-length album due out later this year.


It also arrives on the heels of his most recent release “Telepath. The latter has gathered nearly 35 million streams and counting. Earning critical acclaim, NPR noted, “Conan Gray has ignited Sad Girl Fall” and proclaimed, “A repetitive, mind-numbing bassline gives this song an electro-pop feel that throws us back to the ‘80s.” Fader dubbed it a “striking new electro-pop single,” and press continue to praise Conan with UPROXX saying “Gray has steadily released hit after hit.”
