After dropping the song announcement on January 11, Taylor Acorn has officially shared her new single “Gray.” On the heels of her dark, melancholic, yet energetic 2023 single “Basement,” “Gray” sees the singer exploring life when it feels drab and exhausting—a feeling many can relate to.

“These persistent little doubts/Chew me up then spit me out/Went by the book but skipped a page,” Acorn sings before ramping up to the supercharged chorus, juxtaposed with sunny, dance-inducing guitar melodies. Listen to the new track below.

“I know I say this a lot but I truly mean it when I say one of my favorite songs I think that I’ve ever written comes out tonight and honestly I’m so damn proud of myself, of my co-writer and best friend @danswank for always pushing my abilities as a writer and for bringing this song to life, the incredible @grant_fm for always killing it with the master, @ds_creatives of course for helping bring the artwork to life, and my small but mighty team who allow me to create without ever hesitating to support me and my ideas (even if they get a little crazy lol),” Acorn said in an Instagram caption.

She continued, “This time around feels so different, but in the best way possible. I love this song and this sound with every fiber of my being and I hope you all will love it just the same.”

It was an incredibly exciting 2023 for Acorn, as she released “Coma” featuring Hey Monday‘s Cassadee Pope, shared her EP Certified Depressant, performed at Riot Fest, and just announced a major U.S. and Australian tour.
