Scandinavian artist Skott, has released her new video to for “Stay Off My Mind,” the first single to be lifted from her album of the same title. “Stay Off My Mind” is available everywhere digitally now via Sony Music Entertainment U.K./RCA Records. “Stay Off My Mind” follows previous releases including “Remain,” “Mermaid” “Glitter & Gloss”, “Lack of Emotion,” “Amelia,” “Wolf,” her collaboration with production duo Grey “Crime” and the debut single “Porcelain.”
Despite the uplifting feel of this track, “Stay Off My Mind” was written following the death of a close friend. “Ultimately it’s a song about missing someone so much that you’re living more in the past than in the present. It’s bittersweet because we can have such fond memories, but life goes on and sometimes having flashbacks can keep you from moving on.” Skott reveals.
Evolving from the haunting demeanor of her introductory tracks last year, the new music showcases a brighter side to this breakout artist who continues to impress with her smart and otherworldly lyricism and peerless vocal delivery. Produced by Skott’s long-term collaborators in Stockholm (Agrin Rahmani, Theo Ekblom and Christian Nilsson) and mixed by Anders Hvenare (Miike Snow, Niki & The Dove, Tove Styrke), the EP showcases a playful new direction and acts as a very welcome return from this innovative Swedish musician.
Currently, Skott is preparing to embark on a UK tour supporting MØ in March and April.
