Skylar Grey – “New Kind of Love” | Friday Pop Shop ::
“….there’s huge early-2000s rom-com energy in Skylar Grey’s optimistic new tune from Mindy Kaling’s Four Weddings and a Funeral series on Hulu.

Skylar Grey MCLXXXIX :: ‘Angel With Tattoos’ Project x Other New Music – New Details

Ms. Grey has announced via her Instagram Stories that she is now a free agent, and also detailed what we can expect regarding new music!

If you missed her series of Stories videos, here is a brief overview….

*Angel With Tattoos is currently planned to be the first release in a wave of new music releases, and will have a release date soon – stay tuned!

*Angel With Tattoos will not be a traditional album – it will initially be made available as a 5-song release that will grow over time as Ms. Grey creates more and more music for it. She may stop adding new cuts to it at some point, or it may be a forever-expanding release.

*Angel With Tattoos will still be a 1970s/folk sounding concept project.

*Ms. Grey has been in the studio constantly, experimenting with new sounds and getting herself to where she’s comfortable producing more of her own music herself, instead of having to rely on other producers.

*Some of the sounds that she’s been experimenting with include utilizing a lot of strings and breakbeats.
