Check out excerpts pertaining the song below, and click XXL‘s logo beneath to read the full, 5-section interview with Yelawolf.

Yelawolf Talks “Twisted” | XXL ::
“….XXL: What can people expect from Shady XV?
Yelawolf: I was surprised to see “Pop The Trunk” and “Let’s Roll” on there. I didn’t know they were doing that, which is cool. The original record I put on there, “Down, was a record that was really jamming but I wasn’t going to put it on Love Story. So it just so happened the opportunity came up to place it on Shady XV. “Down, it’s in the vein of where I’m at these days. I put that song on there. I did the feature hook for the Slaughterhouse and Eminem track ["Psychopath Killer"] and the feature verse for the Eminem and Skylar Grey song ["Twisted"].

What can expect from “Twisted? That one caught my eye.
I’m going to leave that one a surprise, just because it’s that much of a surprise. Some people are not going to expect it at all. Even I was like, what the fuck. It definitely flips things. I’ll say that.

When did all this get recorded?
Everyone was doing their own thing on it. Everybody was working in their own city. I was in the studio already working on Love Story. I pretty much haven’t stopped working on Love Story. I just put some shit together, Marshall would send me some shit, and I would record it and send it back to him…..”

Skylar Grey DCCCLXXII :: ‘American’ Confirmed for New Album+’Bed of Lies’ Interview w/ Billboard – 11-NOV-2014

Those of you who follow Ms. Grey on Twitter have likely seen that yesterday, on this past American Veterans Day (November 11), she confirmed the inclusion of her song American on her upcoming still-untitled album!

She also shared the following interview that she recently did with Billboard.

The interview was conducted just after Ms. Grey‘s performance with Nicki Minaj at the 2014 MTV EMAs, and covers a range of new and interesting topics – the sound and status of the next Skylar Grey album (slated for a 2015 release), how “Bed of Lies” came to be, and wanting to bring out a more emotional side of Lil Wayne.

You can check out a few excerpts of the interview article below – click the article title to access the full-length version on Billboard!

Skylar Grey Interview | Billboard ::
“….Are you officially on the “Bed Of Lies” single?

Yeah, the song started being written almost a year ago and then she picked it up and wrote her verses on it. Luckily, she liked the demo of it enough to keep me on the song. I knew it was maybe gonna happen, but she released a lot of different singles first. So I didn’t really know when she was gonna drop this song. And then about a week ago I got a call from her team and they wondered if I could come to Scotland and do the song with them. So yeah, it was the debut of this single featuring me.

When you first heard her verses, which tell of a bitter relationship, possibly her own, what was your response?

When I heard that she was taking the song I was surprised because it’s not a typical kind of song for her. I was very excited when I heard what she did with it. She seemed to take it to a very personal place. And I love that, I love doing that with my songs and my collaborations, bringing out something that’s a little more emotional and personal with the artist.

What other artist do you feel like you could bring out that emotional side?

It’d be kind of interesting to try something with [Lil’] Wayne. I don’t know if he would ever go there, but it’d be interesting to see what would happen if he did something that was personal cause I haven’t really heard him do that.

How is this experience helping you in your own vision?

I’m starting to realize my favorite me is the real me, so here I am. I’m discovering I like me in my rawest form better than me with tons of over-produced music or tons of makeup on. I just think if she’s able to accept herself and Em is able to accept himself than why shouldn’t I be able to accept myself too? They come across as very confident and it makes me inspired to accept myself for who I am.

How far along are you on the record?

I’m constantly morphing because I’m discovering new things in the studio. It’s kind of like a free-flowing thing. But there’s something happening with me in the studio right now that seems kind of magical, all the sounds I ever envisioned coming together are coming together now. I’m working with my dream team, Mike Elizondo and Mark Batson. I feel like I have 80 or 90 percent done with all the writing. So hopefully that means I’ll be able to announce a release date soon.

Can you give us a preview then sonically of the new material?
I’m definitely taking some risks on the album and I’m doing some kind of avant-garde songs and then there are some songs that are not quite so avant-garde. But they sound really cool. It’s definitely more mature than the last album, I feel like on the last album I talked about my childhood and I’m definitely not doing that on this album. It’s more adult and a little bit darker. I’m not doing any collaborations, I just want it to keep it me….”
