‘Not Over You’ offers a cheeky take on the precarious balance between unrelenting love and bitterness following a break-up. Conor’s opening lyrics immediately set the tone: “I heard you’re sleeping with somebody new / I hope he leaves you, I hope he cheats on you / ‘Cos I’ll be right there to hold you when you cry.” That witty wordplay is set to the kind of urgently exuberant sunshine pop that Conor is renowned for.
“It feels exciting to be able to put out ‘Not Over You’ so soon after ‘Hate How Much I Love You“ says Conor. “I was worried the fans might not like the new material, but their response has been so overwhelming and I feel so lucky to have such loyal fans after all this time. This is only the beginning and I can’t wait for them to hear more!”
Conor also applies that fun factor to the accompanying video, which he directed. Whether he’s working at the supermarket, serving at a bar or working out at the gym, Conor’s character conjures up imaginative schemes to get one over his ex’s new partner. Yet there’s a twist-in-the-tale that he didn’t see coming…
