UNCO[V]ERED artist Greyson Chance is gentle yet painfully honest. Spare in texture, emotionally turbulent. He is a virtuoso of understatement, a plain-speaking poet and an artist whose time has come.
Having left Los Angeles to return back to his home state of Oklahoma, Chance was freed from the pressures of the music business with a surge of self-discovery he hadn’t anticipated. “When I wrote a song, I was able to stop thinking about what someone might think of it in a conference room in L.A.,” he says. “I can never give up this process now. It’s always going to be with me.”
A native of Edmond, Oklahoma, Chance came into the national spotlight in 2010, after an unforgettable performance of Lady Gaga’s “Paparazzi” was viewed by over 60 million people on YouTube. Greyson came out publicly in 2017 and uses his platform to be a resource and champion for others in the LGBTQ community.
“Dancing Next To Me” was produced by close collaborator, Teddy Geiger, who is the executive producer on Greyson’s new album set for release this year. The video was directed by Edgar Daniel (Ava Max) and was shot in a warehouse in Los Angeles. The video aims to explore the iteration of human interaction, from rising sexual tension to falling emotions. “Dancing Next To Me” continues to showcase Greyson’s ongoing evolution as an artist and what’s to come from him in 2020.
UNCO[V]ERED premieres on Saturday at 12pm, right after the Official [V] Top 50. Channel 801, only on Foxtel.
