UNVEILS OFFICIAL VIDEO TO LATEST SINGLE “STAY OFF MY MIND” 

Today, the mysterious Scandinavian artist Skott shared the official video to her latest single “Stay Off My Mind,” the first single to be lifted from her EP of the same title. “Stay Off My Mind” is available everywhere digitally now via Sony Music Entertainment U.K./RCA Records. Watch the video HERE.
 
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.
 
“Stay Off My Mind” follows previous releases including “Remain,” “Mermaid” [Watch video HERE] “Glitter & Gloss” [watch video HERE] “Lack of Emotion,” “Amelia,” “Wolf,” her collaboration with production duo Grey “Crime” [watch video HERE] not to mention her stunning debut single “Porcelain.”

SHARES BROODING, ATMOSPHERIC NEW TRACK, “REMAIN” - OUT NOW

“Remain” was written from a place of heartbreak and acceptance, the singer explains; "I fell madly in love when I was 13, and for five years we were inseparable. But sometimes we’re powerless against change – this song is about the pain of growing apart, and accepting that sometimes we have to leave something behind in order to move forward.  How do you tell that to someone, when it’s already hard enough to accept it yourself?”
