Dan Croll shares new singles 'Rain' and 'Actor With A Loaded Gun'

After returning earlier this year to unveil his comeback singles 'Yesterday' and 'Stay In L.A.', Dan Croll is back once again to share another pair of releases.

The new tracks 'Rain' and 'Actor With A Loaded Gun' continue his journey of acclimatisation to life in California, and were produced by Matthew E. White at Spacebomb Studios in Richmond, Virginia.

Speaking about his new offerings, he said, "I wrote 'Rain' as I was packing my belongings a few days before the move to California. I knew the weather was good, I'd been to L.A. a couple of times on tour (mainly in the summer) and it was always hot and sunny, but this was near winter and I was unsure about how many coats and jumpers to pack (the typical British problem of having to own so many). I asked a friend of a friend and they bluntly told me not to bring any. I found that hard to believe, especially when he said it never rains, which I guess I found a little sad, as it's obviously a big part of British life, to not have even a little bit of it would be strange. Since moving, I still don't own a coat, there is no need, and while it has rained a handful of times it's still definitely something I miss about back home.

"'Actor' is about my first step in to the social aspect of L.A. life, I didn't know anyone in Los Angeles, and had to rely on one friend of a friend. He did a great deal for me to get me on my feet, including inviting me to some parties. The first one I went to I was so nervous about, it'd been years since I'd ever needed to actively make a friend and was desperately trying to remember how to. My social anxiety was in full swing when I was there, and I was trying to not tank every conversation, but what I weirdly found comforting was that a good chunk of people there were pretty awful, hilariously so in fact, the stereotypical L.A. social climbers, and it somehow calmed my nerves to know I'd be ok here because at the end of the day, I wasn't there to be an actor."
