We actually wrote this song the first day we ever met so that it was sort of our entrance into not only our friendship but also kind of our relationship as we were then starting to work on the album. It was also coming after a time where I had a really horrible fan of laryngitis over the summer. So, I had been mute for two and a half weeks. So this was like the first day that I was allowed to sort of be creative again, and the song happened. I woke up in the morning, I went to the piano. I immediately started playing that line went in and met Teddy, and it just kind of happened really naturally. While many of his peers aim for success by creating streaming-friendly bodies of work, at massive detriment their own artistry, Greyson thankfully firmly holds onto the importance of an album. Also what it meant to have an album, not only as an artist but also just as a human being. To have the body of work that can really sort of survive as a reminder of, during this period of time.

In the music video for Greyson Chance's new single, "Boots," he struts through the desert like he owns the place, decked out in cowboy-inspired gear. As part of our current western renaissance , the track celebrates his Oklahoma roots while also poking fun at trend obsessed LA culture — like when Chance's opponent pauses to puff on a Juul during a Clint-Eastwood-style standoff.

He was quickly swallowed by the industry machine, who wanted to fit him into the Bieber mold — pumping out pop tracks and lacking creative control.

Now 10 years since the moment that first put his talent on display for millions and after a grueling year of touring with Portraits more than shows spanning multiple continents , the year-old is ready to continue leveling up as an artist and performer. For his new album due out in , Greyson's been in-and-out of the studio working with industry heavy-hitters like Teddy Geiger and Uffie to make music that gives fans a real look at what his life has been like for the last year.
