Sky Ferreira Hospitalized After Concert Fall

Sky Ferreira injury

Sky Ferreira checked in with fans on Twitter (@skyferreira) moments ago, talking about her injury the previous night while performing as an opening act for Miley Cyrus at the Honda Center in Anaheim, California. The 21-year-old singer, touring in support of her debut studio album ‘Night Time, My Time’, writes:

I fell during the intro of the 1st song of the set. I ended up with 60 stitches & at the hospital for 7 hours. I didn’t even notice the injury until 10 mins after I played because I had so much fun. I just figured it was some blood. I’m so excited to do the LA show tomorrow (despite the not so cool bandage around my leg).Thanks @mileycyrus for having me. Love u xoxoxo #ThePowerOfAdrenalin

Biggest thank you 2 @grant_singer for staying with me the entire night & taking care of everything. For real for real.

Sky Ferreira: Album Getting Pushed Back A “Huge Opportunity”

Sky Ferreira checked in with her Twitter followers (@skyferreira) on Friday, discussing delays in the release of her debut album on Capitol Records. The 21-year-old, who has been releasing singles since 2010, six in total, has yet to find much traction on radio with any of them, yet Sky has been fortunate to have the major label backing her not pull the plug. A Tweet from DIIV (@DIIV) prompting Sky’s delay explanation stated:

Everyone who’s bummed that @skyferreira pushed back her album should just be psyched because it’s gonna be that much better. huge things in store

Sky writes:

My LP got pushed back for a few reasons. 1. Huge opportunity to make something better 2. I’ll now be able to release it worldwide

I wasn’t able to before due to the transition/EMI being bought by Universal

3. RELEASE DATES ARE SORT OF REALLY COMPLETELY OUT OF MY CONTROL. Jk. Kinda.

It’s really for the best. It’s not getting delayed because things are going wrong. It’s actually the complete opposite.

EP coming out in September. Including…You’re Not The One.

Sky Ferreira Talks Music, Jeremy Scott & Inspiration

Sky Ferreira, seen here wearing eyeliner, talks about being inspired by producer Jon Brion, what her schedule has been making new music and wearing clothes by fashion designer Jeremy Scott

Sky Ferreira recently spoke with Fashion News Live before a Jeremy Scott fashion show, where the pop artist talked about what has been inspiring her and what fans can expect with her music.

“I have many inspirations actually,” the 20-year-old said. “I think it’s more life situations and who I’ve been working with. I’ve been working with Jon Brion on tons of stuff, so a lot of his work has been inspiring me.”

As for how what her schedule has been recording her new music, Sky said, “I’ve been going to the recording studio in LA every night for the past 3 1/2 months and I work until like nine in the morning, so it’s pretty insane. It’s a lot slower and a lot more organic than it was before. I’d say half of it is a bit more dense and a lot more down tempo, piano driven songs.”

Sky Ferreira On Debut Album & Getting A Song From Shirley Manson

Sky Ferreira appeared on Belly of the Beast with Hannah Rad recently on EVR.com, where the singer talked about catching the attention of Bloodshy and Avant on MySpace, how many tracks fans can expect on her full-length debut album and teaming up with Shirley Manson on ‘Red Lips’.

“I basically talked a lot of sh** with them. I was like, I can do everything, even though I couldn’t do that much besides sing and write kind of, not my best, but I tried, and I got a record deal from it.”

Talking about plans to release her debut album in 2013, Sky said, “If it was up to me, I’d put 16 (tracks on the album), but I obviously can’t do that. So like 12 to 14, but I’ll say 12. Actually I’m trying to figure out how to do it, because half of it is dance pop, and the other half is stripped down with Jon Brion.

Talking about the Manson penned track ‘Red Lips’, featured on Sky’s second EP ‘Ghost’ which was released last month, Sky explained, “It was originally her song from her solo album, and she was like, ‘Do you want it?’ I was like I’m not gonna say no to Shirley Manson.” As for meeting the Garbage singer, she explained, “My friend Greg was working with her on a shoot, and somehow my name came up during the shoot, and she was like, ‘I know Sky. She used to work with Greg Kurstin and I’ve know her for years’, even though I’ve never met her but she’s known about me since MySpace. She knew me from MySpace. That’s kind of how it happened and he kind of, and this is when I wasn’t doing too well, I was in record label hell, I got shelved and I couldn’t go anywhere obviously and I didn’t know what to do. She kind of was like, ‘Record this song and maybe something will happen.’ So I recorded it and it came out.”

Sky Ferreira: I’m Going Through A Reinvention Phase

Sky Ferreira by Rankin

Sky Ferreira spoke with Rolling Stone in a Q&A, talking about her role as a face for CK One and the progress on her debut album. “I’m going through a reinvention phase, where I’m trying to figure out where it is I want to go next,” the 19-year-old said. “I’m not sixteen anymore, you know? I’m not sure I want to continue in the dance-pop vein that I’ve come to be associated with. The thing people may not know yet is that I have a really good voice; I can actually sing and I’d like to use that to my advantage. Everyone’s vocals are so processed now. So, showcasing what is unique about my voice and my songwriting is a priority. I have a lot more things to say now.”
