Conan Gray’s third album “Found Heaven,” which came out on April 5, shows upbeat emotion
Muriel Knudson
Conan Gray released his third album, “Found Heaven” earlier this month.

Conan Gray’s new album could be one of his best, it introduces a new type of music for him, and shows an expansion in his music. The album shows emotion even though most of the songs are pretty upbeat, it just shows how talented Conan Gray is.

“Found Heaven” has 13 songs, five of those, “Never Ending Song,” “Lonely Dancers,” “Alley Rose,” “Killing Me” and “Winner,” were previously released in late 2023 early 2024.

“I think it’s very different from his other styles of music,” said sophomore Lean Curfman. “I definitely think he did a good job with the album.”

Gray has previously released two albums and one EP along with some singles over several years of releasing music. He has become a very popular artist, and still has a lot more he can and will do with his career.

“I like alot of the stuff he puts out,” said senior Hannah Covalt. “I think this album is very versatile, as opposed to his last two albums. I think it was just a really good contrast in his discography.”

This new album shows a new variety to Gray’s music that fans have not seen before he started the release of “Found Heaven.”

“[My favorite song] would probably have to be Winner,” said Curfman, “because that’s the one I listened to the most.”

Winner is one of the songs Gray released before the album, it was released Aug. 25, 2023.

“Kid Krow is always going to have a special place in my heart,” said Covalt. “because that’s what got me hooked on him … I also love a lot of his newer stuff, I think he’s eating it up.”

Conan Gray has a very original take on music, especially with his lyrics; they are raw and he does not try to hide emotion behind them. His music is relatable to a variety of audiences, and whether a persons been a fan for five years or five weeks they are going to love this album.
