Colette Carr Releases Installment of SKITSZO with SKITSZO PART 2 Out Today
Singer, rapper, songwriter and Malibu-reppin' Colette Carr is pioneering a maverick, new delivery method for the upcoming release of her debut album Skitszo. In keeping with the innovative and through-composed spirit of Colette's music and personality (as evidenced in a series of viral videos, mix tapes, features and dynamic multi-media blog), Cherrytree Records introduces a new way to issue Colette's debut to her loyal and engaged fanbase and beyond. The album's songs will go on sale as fast as they're finished via four digital EP installments to be released in two-month increments. On July 9th, 2013, the full album will be made available and include all four prior EP's plus four additional, new tracks.
Today sees the release of Skitszo Part 2 which includes the new single "Why Are You Leaving?" produced by Cherry Cherry Boom Boom and featuring Far East Movement's Kev Nish. On the track, Colette personifies a less-than-innocent bystander in a relationship gone south while Kev Nish is the foil to her torment. The accompanying video, to be released later this month, is a gritty testimonial about a relationship grown complicated shot in the melancholy corners of a wistful downtown LA.
Skitszo, which features Colette's unique combination of singing and spitting ("spinging"), is a wickedly inventive set of pop, hip-hop, and electro-pop co-written with and produced by The Cataracs, Martin "Cherry Cherry Boom Boom" Kierszenbaum, Frankmusik and RedOne. Colette's unique flow and unexpected lyrics are a wild mix of sassy humor and spitfire personality.
Just last month, not only did Colette hit #1 on the Hype Machine chart with her cover of The Waitresses' classic holiday track "Christmas Wrapping"- a collaboration with U.K. electro-pop band The Good Natured, but EQ Music Blog named Skitszo Part 1 one of the Top 20 Best Albums of 2012.
