After shelving her Invinsible album, which was hard to say and spell, Skylar Grey, known for co-writing the Eminem and Rihanna smash "Love the Way You Lie," will release her debut album Don't Look Down on July 9.
"After years of experimenting and collaborating with so many amazing people, I'm beyond excited to be putting out an album of my own," said Grey in a press statement. "It took a while, but I finally found a balance between sounds that truly represents me- an emotional, small town American singer songwriter who ventured into the land of hip-hop. 'Final Warning' is my favorite song on the album. I wrote it the same week I wrote 'Love the Way You Lie' in my cabin in the woods in Oregon, inspired by the same tumultuous relationship."
She has switched gears, from gothy and rock-oriented, to a little more pop'ish. We can't wait to hear the rest of the record.
The 11-track album will feature various songs and visuals that take the listener on a sonic exploration spanning darkly brooding yet beautiful vocals, innovative beats, biting lyrics and vast cinematic imagery. Lyrically, the album's songs are reflective of Grey's life from rebellious childhood years to more recently as she struggled to find her place in the world, all lead by her dusky, sexy, chilly voice.
Here's the Lyric video for "Final Warning":
