Skylar Spence shares new single “Cry Wolf”

September 4, 2018 12:41 pm

Skylar Spence's two-track release, the follow up to his 2015 album Prom King, comes out tomorrow! listen to "Cry Wolf" via The Fader.

Ryan DeRobertis on the release: "I felt alone and detached from things that used to make me feel joy, but kind of just allowed myself to wallow in that anxiety and depression instead of reaching out for help," he said. "It took me nearly a year to reach the point where I had to start making changes in my life, and this chorus was meant to be kind of a mantra for people who've found themselves in my space, where you've talked so often about making changes it starts to feel like crying wolf. You can get through it (and appreciate the insight you gained for having gone through it!)"

Carousel / Cry Wolf is available here.

Skylar Spence shares new single “Carousel”

August 21, 2018 11:17 am

Thrilled to announce that Skylar Spence is baack. Enjoy the ride with his new song, "Carousel," taken from his forthcoming two-track release out September 5th. Video created by Jena Goma (Showtime Goma, of A Sunny Day in Glasgow.)

The chorus was intended to be cyclical like a ferris wheel or a carousel -- at the end of the ride, you end up where you started. In the song, the vacation starts out hectic which, for him ruins the point of a vacation, when you can’t kick your feet up and relax. You need to work hard for those moments, to feel like you earned them. Those moments when one doesn't have to abide by a schedule, that allows for relaxation or even exploration, and they usually end up being the best parts of a vacation.

Carousel / Cry Wolf is available for pre-order here.

Skylar Spence releases single “Faithfully”

October 10, 2016 1:53 pm

A new Skyar Spence track premiered today! Head over to The Fader to stream his dreamy
new song “Faithfully.”

Ryan DeRobertis on the track: “The main vocal sample is from Aretha Franklin’s ”Wonderful,” a song that I sampled a few years ago in my song, “Mr. Wonderful,” which is pretty ebullient and braggadocios by nature,” he said. “I think this song is in stark contrast with “Mr. Wonderful”—when I was making it I pictured two people catching each other’s eyes on a subway. Maybe one of them’s married. The point is, there’s nothing between them besides that fleeting, spontaneous chemistry that’s led many to Craigslist’s missed connections. So this song’s kind of about missed connections. Also, I’d like to stress that it’s an older tune I really wanted to release, and it’s neither a track from my forthcoming material, nor a hint of what’s to come!”
