Eminem to Executive Produce Skylar Grey’s Debut Album
Eminem has officially signed on as an executive producer for Skylar Grey’s debut album, Don’t Look Down, which is slated for a Spring 2013 release.
The two first got acquainted during the recording of Em’s Recovery album in 2010.
“When I was working on Recovery I was introduced to Skylar by Alex Da Kid and I was blown away with her talent as both a songwriter and vocalist,” said Eminem. “This album is really going to give her a chance to connect with the fans who probably know her music, but might not know her yet. I think they will be as impressed as I am.”
Marshall also co-produced her first single with producer Alex Da Kid. The track, “C’mon Let Me Ride,” featuring Eminem, will be released to all digital retailers on December 11.
“Putting out a debut album is a bit scary – I want it to be just right so I took some extra time to finish it. Eminem’s increased involvement has been such a blessing; I’m getting guidance from an artist I really admire and trust,” said Grey. “Having written many new songs, the album has become a completely different animal, hence the title change. This new single with Em, in particular, is very exciting. We have worked on so many serious songs together – it’s a nice change of pace to do something fun and sarcastic.”
A music video for the single has already been shot in Detroit. The song’s hook is rumored to feature Em doing a new rendition of Queen’s hit “Bicycle Race.”
