Skott shares new EP 'Stay Off My Mind'

Having spent much of last year releasing one-off singles, Skott has begun her 2018 with the surprise release of a brand new EP.

The new four-track release 'Stay Off My Mind' is being led by the title-track, which sees her sample the anthemic Peter, Bjorn and John single ‘Young Folks’.

Speaking on the track, Skott said, “I've been working a bit with Bjorn from Peter Bjorn & John, and we meant to replace the sample, but it just worked so perfectly so its ended up in the song. The producers and I couldn't decide on a bpm for the song – when the verse felt fast, the chorus felt slow, and vice versa, so the song actually switches tempo four times”.

But despite its upbeat sound, the track was written in memory of a close friend of hers who passed away recently, with her adding, “Ultimately it’s a song about missing someone so much that you're almost 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.”

The EP also comes with the announcement of a series of live shows for later in the year alongside MØ. Click here to stream the EP in full and see the full list of tour dates below.
