American singer-songwriter Skylar Grey released a new EP “Angel With Tattoos” on October 18th.
Originally, “Angel With Tattoos” was recorded as her third studio album. But she left Interscope Records/KIDinaKORNER back in July.
She decided to release as the independent 5-track EP. It will grow into the album as new songs are added.
This project has two main concepts. One being the sound inspired by her roots and influences, including Fleetwood Mac, Joni Mitchell and Carole King. While the other is its theme, which is mainly inspired by her relationship with her fiancé Elliott Taylor.
She told PAPER Magazine, “With the new music, I’m going back to my roots which are a lot of acoustic and folk-inspired music from my childhood. I grew up listening to Joni Mitchell and Fleetwood Mac and stuff like that. I miss that era in music, and then also I’m just really a fan of strong lyrics and storytelling and singing about true things. So, there’s a lot of story-telling in my songs, straight from my diary. This is the love of my life, Elliott, and I write pretty much everything about him these days, so it’s a lot of love songs.”
