Sky Ferreira Returns With New Song “Don't Forget”
- American singer-songwriter Sky Ferreira returned with a new song “Don't Forget” on May 25, 2022.
It is her first single in three years since the 2019 single “Downhill Lullaby”.
Also, both of songs will appear on her upcoming sophomore album “Masochism”.
Sky Ferreira shared on social media, “This song has lived 9,000 lives(versions). This album is finally real. 9 years later. It’s real. So many things I’ve wanted to say for so long…it’s arrived & my mind is blank.”
The track was written by Sky Ferreira and TAMARYN. Produced by Jorge Elbrecht and Sky Ferreira.
Sky Ferreira told Vulture about the song, “It wasn't supposed to be apocalyptic, but in some ways it is. I did see fire, and I also saw a place between heaven and hell, that sort of vibe. But not in a biblical sense. I felt very stifled for a long time, and I still do. It's not that I wanted to burn people's houses on fire or something; it is a little more symbolic. It's about being put in these situations for a long time. It's a bit of freeing myself, but not in the most conventional way. Because I don't feel free, necessarily. I'm not trying to throw everyone under the bus yet. Because that's the thing: How do I say what I've been going through without having to become a victim to it or it becoming some narrative? Then my whole record becomes that. In my mind it's like, You don't get to do that to me.”
- She continued, “The song's actually a weird song; the chorus is weird. People who heard it were like, 'Why isn't this chorus bigger?' In a way, it's minimal. But the song isn't minimal whatsoever. I realized that about my music, I'm just not a minimal person. When I think of pop music, I lean towards the '80s and '90s without meaning to. It's not that I'm trying to sound like that. I listen to new stuff too, but when I'm writing and I'm making music, I listen to things differently. I just need to figure out, What do I actually want to say? and What do I want to make? and shut that out. When I'm listening to music, it's like, Why do I even like this part? Do I like the tone of it? There are all these elements, and then I try to make it into one thing. The song doesn't sound as complicated as what it is, but that's the point. It shouldn't sound complicated to your ear. That's the goal: putting all these things together that technically don't make sense, and then trying to figure out. The thing in the song that was important to me is the dynamic of it. I don't think it's a very quiet song.”
The new album is expected to be released in 2022. It is her first LP in nine years since the 2013 debut album “Night Time, My Time”.
She said, “On the heels of this, like, 100 percent confident. It's not like I'm not releasing music till 2023. The album is written. I think there's some things that need to be finished, and I would like to write some [more] songs. I have so many songs written, but I do think it would be nice to write under the circumstance where it's not in the middle of having my hands tied, like being bound and gagged. I've yet to be able to do that. That's why I've been so particular with this song.”
