Skylar Grey has recently released her new video for her latest single, “Invisible.”. The video is directed by Jay Martin (Wolfmother, Atreyu, Death Cab For Cutie) and stars Grey, herself.
Skylar penned “Invisible” about a year ago, while living in the Oregon wilderness, and has this to say about the track:
“I wanted it to be Peter Parker by day meets Spider-Man by night. An everyday kid who isn’t really that cool but there’s something else going on that people don’t know about. That’s kind of the journey that I went on. I discovered that my insecurities and my flaws were things that I actually need to embrace, and I let them become my superpowers.” The song “Invisible” is the single from her forthcoming albun, INVINSIBLE.
INVINSIBLE is going to be released from Alex da Kid’s KIDinaKORNER/Interscope Records. . Grey has most notably made a name for herself lending her songwriting and singing talents to such acts as Eminem and Rihanna (“Love the Way You Lie”), Dr. Dre (“I Need a Doctor”), Diddy Dirty Money (“Coming Home”) and Lupe Fiasco (“Words I Never Said”), among others.
Grey’s INVINSIBLE, produced by Alex Da Kid, will take listeners by storm with a breathlessly original sound – a sonic exploration in darkly brooding yet beautiful vocal textures, innovative beats and biting lyrics. From “Invisible,” to INVINSIBLE, the album represents the unveiling of Grey, who has remained much of a mystery to this point.
“I have been working so hard with Alex on this music; I’m excited it’s finally going to be out there for everyone to hear. I won’t have to describe it anymore, because the music can finally speak for itself,” Grey has said. “Also, I’m very influenced by film and it is my hope that when people listen to my music, they are consumed with vast, cinematic imagery.”
Lyrically, the album’s songs, which also include “WEIRDO,” “BUILDING A MONSTER,” and “FINAL WARNING,” chronicle the transformation Grey has made over the past few years as she has struggled to find her place within the music industry. “Building A Monster,” in particular, chronicles the process Grey has taken from invisible to invincible – the two words the album’s title play on.
Skylar Grey’s debut album, INVINSIBLE, arrives 2012.
