Summer may not officially start for another couple of months, but Greyson Chance is already vying to have his new song become the song of the summer. Chance’s new single, ‘Hellboy’ is the singer’s latest from his forthcoming EP.
Chance brings sexy and sultry lyrics to his latest single and in an interview with Paper Magazine, the 23-year-old singer explains his inspiration for ‘Hellboy’:
It’s a long and complicated story like everything else. But the pandemic has been, for me, sitting down trying to focus and make an album. As the world has been crashing and burning around me, it was a little difficult to truly stay focused on, “What is the intention? What do I want to say in this next body of work?” And ‘Hellboy’ to me was the first time with the record where I actually remembered how fun it could be and how I could step into this world, step on stage, step into the studio and become this character. ‘Hellboy’ was the first time with the album where I felt like I was embracing the fun in music again and just thinking about, “Who can I become when I walk into the studio today?” So it is a bit of me embracing an alter ego, but also for the first time during the pandemic finally having fun with music again and finding fun in life in general.
Over on his TikTok account, Chance talks about how he started in the music business compared to where he is today.
