SKYLAR GREY’S ALBUM “NATURAL CAUSES” SET TO RELEASE ON SEPT 23RD

12 CITY TOUR WILL KICK OFF SAME NIGHT

 

 

LOS ANGELES, CA (August 15, 2016) – Singer/Songwriter, Skylar Grey will release her sophomore album Natural Causes from KIDinaKORNER/Interscope on September 23rd.  She will also hit the road for the Natural Causes Tour in partnership with the official wine sponsor Eppa SupraFruta Sangria. The 12 city tour will kick off in San Francisco at The Lodge at Regency on September 23, with stops in Los Angeles, Chicago and Washington, DC, before wrapping on October 11th in New York at (Le) Poisson Rouge.

 

Tickets for The Natural Causes Tour available on Friday at SkylarGreyMusic.com

 

The 12-track album was mostly written and recorded at her Park City, UT home, which she calls Grizzly Manor Studios.   The five-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist breathed inspiration from her surroundings and exhaled songs that speak to the magic and majesty of nature.

 

Grey began working on what would become Natural Causes shortly after the release of 2013’s critically acclaimed Don’t Look Down, which reached #8 on the Billboard Top 200. She made short trips to Los Angeles in order to collaborate with producers including Alex Da Kid [Imagine Dragons, X Ambassadors], Mike Elizondo [Dr. Dre, Fiona Apple] and Mark Batson [Jay-Z, Dave Matthews Band], and Symbolic One [Kanye West, Beyonce].

 

Grey stepped outside of her comfort zone for this album.  For the first time, she picks up the mic and raps during key moments of “Lemonade” and “Picture Perfect”—which she dubs a “personal favorite.” Her rhyme skills even take the spotlight on a separate contribution to the Suicide Squad Official Soundtrack entitled “Wreak Havoc.”  The album also delivers ethereal guitar picking in the track, “Moving Mountains,” and electro beat and harmonic swell, in the debut single, “Off Road.” Elsewhere on the album, “Straight Shooter” blasts out a sing-rap bounce through skittering production, while “Jump” sees her breathy voice entwine with a tribal chant and tripped-out delay. Eminem produced “Come Up for Air,” over a jazzy noir shuffle of drums by Questlove and a bass guitar hum, her stark and stirring vocal and poetic lyrics instantly captivate.

 

Grey is widely recognized for co-writing the biggest selling single of 2010: Eminem’s “Love the Way You Lie,” which earned her two GRAMMY Award nominations for Best Song and Best Rap Song of the Year. She also co-wrote and appeared on Dr. Dre’s “I Need A Doctor,” which she performed alongside Dre and Eminem on the 2011 GRAMMY Awards telecast and for which she was nominated for two GRAMMY Awards.  Most recently, Grey collaborated with X-Ambassadors on her single “Cannonball” and just wrapped a North American tour with Atlas Genius.
