SKYLAR GREY’S MUSIC VIDEO FOR “OFF ROAD” DEBUTS TODAY AND TRACK NOW AVAILABLE THROUGH ALL DIGITAL RETAILERS
Album due this fall from KIDinaKORNER/Interscope
NEW YORK, NY (July 22nd, 2016) – The video for Skylar Grey’s new song “Off Road,” shot entirely on the new Samsung Gear 360, debuts today with the release of the track available now through all digital retailers. “Off Road,” produced and co-written by Jayson DeZuzio for KIDinaKORNER, is featured on her upcoming album due this fall from KIDinaKORNER/Interscope.
Veering in and out of a driving electro beat and harmonic swell, “Off Road” showcases Grey’s spirit with an invigorating invitation to stray from the path most traveled.
“Off Road is a summer jam about adventure”, said Grey. I’m always looking to explore uncharted territory and try new things to expand my horizons. Here’s a little backstory on how the song came to be… it all began with a track by Jayson DeZuzio that I was obsessed with. The first time I tried writing to it, my song didn’t do the track justice so it got put away. Then about a year later, he wrote me and said that another artist was interested in taking the track, so I said “WAIT! Let me try writing to it one more time…” So I rewrote to the track that very night, and the result was “Off Road.”
Directed by renowned photographer, Tyler Shields, “Off Road” was shot on the Samsung Gear 360 camera. Part of Samsung’s larger VR ecosystem of devices, the Gear 360 camera is a high-resolution, 360-degree camera that captures images using two 195 degree hemisphere, allowing viewers to be fully immersed in Skylar’s life in Park City, Utah. From the top of a mountain to a canoe in the middle of a lake, the video takes viewers on a journey that they control via the use of the 360 degree technology.
“Working in 360 is such a different way of thinking, and using the Samsung Gear 360 camera was a crazy new adventure in itself! The fact that you can not only watch me perform, but also see what I’m looking at will give fans a really intimate view into my life and my home environment in Park City”, said Grey.
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. In 2013 she released her debut album Don’t Look Down executive produced by Eminem and debuted at #8 on the Billboard Top 200. Most recently, Grey collaborated with X-Ambassadors on her single “Cannonball” and just wrapped a North American tour with Atlas Genius.
