Indie pop singer-songwriter and internet personality Conan Gray has announced his latest single 'Heather' is getting its own official music video. The new visual is arriving on Thursday, August 20, at 9 am PT (12 pm ET / 4 pm GMT) The 21-year-old singer took to both his Twitter and Instagram accounts to tease the video with a short clip with a duration of just a single bar of music. Based on the clip, with the singer in a slow-mo shower, it looks like Gray is heating up the dreamy nature of the track with a more sensual theme in the music video. Until its release, you can watch the lyric video below.

Fans on Twitter are in a meltdown over the teaser. "CONAN MY HEART JUST JUMPED WTF," wrote a fan while another tweeted, "IM LITERALLY SCREAMING IN MY ROOM RIGHT NOW OMFG CONAN."



One fan wrote, "Pack it up 50 shades of conan gray."


Another fan wrote, "Damn we gonna cry."


'Heather' came out on March 20, as part of Conan Gray’s debut studio album, 'Kid Krow'. Prior to its release, Gray seemingly implied that 'Heather' is one of his favorite tracks on the album and it is also a fan-favorite. The song is based on a type of bisexual love triangle where the titular "Heather" is not the one Gray is crooning but rather the person that stole the affections of his actual love interest. Gray opened up about his love life with 'Heather' in an interview for Apple Music when 'Kid Krow' released in March. He said the track "is the song on the album that I always cry to." He added, "I think it’s the most honest recount of my love life at the moment."

Gray explained, "It’s about a girl named Heather. I think everyone has a Heather in their life. The person that I really, really liked was in love with Heather. They were not in love with me, and because of that, I f**king hated Heather. I hated Heather with all of my heart and soul." He continued, "I had no reason to hate Heather. Heather is a perfectly nice girl. She’s sweet and she’s pure and she smells like daisies—she’s perfect, but I hate her. It’s this humiliating thing to admit, but it’s just true."

A the time, Gray admitted, "I’m scared to see how people are going to react, because it isn’t a good thing to think something like that, but I also think it’s something that I’ve never really heard anyone admit. I’m sorry, Heather. You’re a wonderful person.”

Sonically, the song is tipped by a sweetness in tone yet born out of pain. Over tender acoustic guitar and ambient synth, Gray sings, "Why would you ever kiss me? I'm not even half, as pretty. You gave her your sweater. It's just polyester, but you like her better. Wish I were Heather."
