GRAMMY-NOMINATED SINGER SONGWRITER SKYLAR GREY ANNOUNCES FIRST LIVE DATES AND MUSIC VIDEO IN SUPPORT OF FORTHCOMING SOLO DEBUT ALBUM “INVINSIBLE” DUE FALL 2011 FROM KIDinaKORNER/INTERSCOPE
GRAMMY-nominated singer songwriter Skylar Grey will be performing three live shows in July, visiting San Diego, San Francisco and Pomona, prior to her previously announced performance at Lollapalooza, in support of her highly-anticipated forthcoming debut album INVINSIBLE. INVINSIBLE is due to be released in Fall 2011 from Alex da Kid’s KIDinaKORNER/Interscope Records. The music video for the album’s teaser single “Dance Without You,” debuted on Vevo on July 5th. The first official single, “Invisible,” debuted on “On Air With Ryan Seacrest” and will be available on iTunes in early July. 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. Fans and critics previously received a sneak peek of INVINSIBLE with the teaser track “Dance Without You” available as a 48-hour free download on www.skylargreymusic.com.
“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. The album will include one, soon-to-be-announced feature collaboration. A full track listing will be announced in the forthcoming months.
