Grey Explains Mood of Debut Album | HipHopDX ::
“….Skylar had this to say about what listeners can expect from her new album: “There are a lot of different things on the album. ‘C’mon Let me Ride’ definitely does not represent the rest of the album. You will hear things that are more expected, more melancholy, more melodic. Then there is stuff that is more fun. That is because when I started making this album, the oldest song was two years old and was right around the time I wrote ‘Love The Way You Lie.‘ After that song, I felt a lot of love while working with great people and having money again. I had a couple of really happy years and started writing some happier songs too. ‘C’mon Let me Ride’ is reflective of these good times”….
As previously mentioned, Eminem has given Skylar Grey a lot of advice. Out of all the sessions that Skylar Grey has had with Eminem, she speaks on the best advice that he gave her: “Well I have a lot of identity crises. I love so many different kinds of music and fashion. I am all over the map. Sometimes I go too far in one direction and I say ‘Oh no, that’s not me.‘ Eminem told me, ‘Just be you.‘ That is so simple yet so true. I should not try and be anything, I should just be me. It should be as easy as breathing to put out this album and make these songs.”….
Don’t Look Down is scheduled to be released in early 2013 with more appearances from Eminem along with a feature from Marilyn Manson. As far as producers go, Skylar is going to be working with Alex Da Kid and J.R Rotem, among others….”
