Skylar Grey Interview w/ UPROXX ::
“….Did you pick to record “Stand By Me” by Ben E. King?
Budweiser came to me asking if I’d be interested in recording a cover of
“Stand By Me” for their Super Bowl commercial, and explained what the spot would be, I thought it was a great idea. I was excited to record one of the greatest songs of all time, and for such a good cause.

What are you working on now? When can we expect your next solo project?
You can expect new music very soon! Following the release of
“Stand By Me” I will be releasing my own solo version of “Walk On Water, which will also be on my upcoming album. I am writing and recording that as we speak. With this album, I’m going back to my roots, the music I grew up on like Joni Mitchell and Fleetwood Mac. Also, I know I’m known for pretty dark lyrics, but most of the songs I’m writing these days are happy love songs, because I am head over heels in love!

Is there anyone you’d like to collaborate with in the future?
That’s a tough question… there’s so many talented people in the world I would love to work with. But right now I’m focusing on my own project….”
