Conan Gray Reveals Why ‘Heather’ Almost Didn’t Make His Debut Album

Written by on October 9, 2020

Conan Gray called into The Late Late Show with James Corden on Wednesday (Oct. 8) to spill the tea on the inspiration behind his hit single “Heather.”

Chatting with James Corden, the rising pop star admitted the yearning anthem almost didn’t make the cut for his debut album, Kid Krow.

“When I wrote the song, I was really embarrassed because it’s about this girl from my high school who, like, barely knew that I even existed, and I was super jealous of her,” he said with a laugh. “And I just thought that maybe nobody would relate to it, I thought that maybe I was insane for feeling the way I felt…It’s not a very nice song; it’s not nice to tell someone that you want them to disappear.

“So yeah, I almost didn’t put it on the album,” Gray continued. “I thought that I was crazy, and turns out that I’m not the only one that’s felt that way about someone. I think everybody as a Heather in their life.”
