So we're guessing that Invinsible has been scrapped and/or renamed?
Eminem has signed on as executive producer of debut album for singer songwriter Skylar Grey. The first single, "C'mon Let Me Ride," featuring Eminem, which is produced by Alex Da Kid and mixed by both Eminem and Alex, will be released on December 11. Grey's debut album, now titled Don’t Look Down, is due out Spring 2013 from KIDinaKORNER/Interscope.
Grey co-wrote "Love the Way You Lie," so Em is returning the favor by twiddling the knobs.
She was supposed to release her album last year and then it (and she) just...went away.
"When I was working on Recovery, I was introduced to Skylar by Alex Da Kid and I was blown away with her talent as both a songwriter and vocalist," said Eminem. "This album is really going to give her a chance to connect with the fans who probably know her music, but might not know her yet. I think they will be as impressed as I am."
Grey revealed why the album was pushed back and why she changed the title, despite promoting it with interviews and videos last summer.
"Putting out a debut album is a bit scary – I want it to be just right so I took some extra time to finish it. Eminem's increased involvement has been such a blessing; I'm getting guidance from an artist I really admire and trust,” said Grey. "Having written many new songs, the album has become a completely different animal, hence the title change. This new single with Em, in particular, is very exciting. We have worked on so many serious songs together – it's a nice change of pace to do something fun and sarcastic."
