Gorran is a London based vocalist and songwriter whose music fuses elements of dance, pop, R&B and hip-hop. Following the release of Easy For You and Hush which both garnered commercial acclaim, accumulating over 100 thousand Spotify streams in only a few short weeks, Gorran is now unveiling the I Don’t Love You Anymore. He spoke with The Fountain about the catalyst for the track as well as his writing plans for 2020.
TF: You have a new single out, I Don’t Love You Anymore, what has the reception been to this?
The reception so far has been amazing. The track is at over 85,000 streams on Spotify alone now, and I’ve received many messages from people about how the song has affected them personally.
TF: And how would you sum up the track in one sentence?
It is a very, very sad song about the moment that I realised I was no longer in love with the person I thought I was going to spend the rest of my life with.
TF: And are you working towards the release of an album or EP?
The songs I’m in the process of writing at the moment feel like they are very much part of the same world sonically and thematically, and so will most likely become and EP /album eventually. You’ll have to wait and see.
TF: What else is on the cards for Gorran, can we expect a gig in Scotland soon?
I’m writing a lot at the moment. I want to take the time to continue to develop my sound and my songs. Last year was a very busy period for me in other areas of my career, and my life in general, so I wasn’t necessarily in the right headspace to write as much as I am currently. I’m loving how things are going right now. I’m in a really good place. And yes, I will make sure I do a show in Scotland at some point in the near future!
TF: What has been your favourite gig to date?
Playing the Roundhouse last year was an amazing experience. I’m grateful to have been able to play such an iconic venue so early on in my career. It was lovely of KT Tunstall to bring me on the road with her.
