Claud is back with a brand new single, “Go Home,” out now via Saddest Factory Records.
The track feels like a perfect summer anthem. With fun-loving guitars, breezy melodies, and catchy vocals, you’ll definitely want to drive down the highway to this track with the windows down. Lyrically, Claud delivers clever lines like, “I don’t understand your references/ Your collegiate sentences/ Friends who talk theory when I thought this was a party.”
“‘Go Home!’ is about falling into that hole of feeling awkward and uncomfortable in your own skin that all you crave is going home and sliding into whatever is familiar,” Claud explains.

Today’s release follow’s last year’s album, Super Monster. The stunning 13-track collection is all about self-discovery, as Claud sings of queer love and growing up. The clever, insightful tunes are a true-to-life exploration of the messy process of finding yourself. Most of the tracks look at different stages of relationships, from early crushes to devastating heartbreak.
Atop vibrant pop tunes, these tracks come packed with visceral, extremely self-aware lyrics, with an unmatched sense of tenderness and relatability for the listener.
The tracks “detailed the phases of only two or three relationships, simply written during them or at various points after they were over,” Claud explains. “I’d write about how I felt in the moment, then two months later, a year later. My perspective evolved during one relationship with the same person. I changed so much that it feels like a different person writing some of these songs – but it’s just me.”
