After releasing the dead-serious “Final Warning” back in April, Skylar Grey gave us another taste of her upcoming debut album today with the release of her new track “Wear Me Out.” The slinky, piano-driven track is about Grey’s childhood, as she explains: “I am going back to my roots as a piano-driven singer-songwriter with this song,” she said. “The song and the video were both inspired by events in my childhood, like sneaking out of the house to camp with my friends and flirt with boys.”
“Wear Me Out” was produced by hitmaker J.R. Rotem and is the first glimpse we’ve gotten of Skylar Grey without Alex da Kid‘s sound; he produced her previous singles “C’mon Let Me Ride” and “Final Warning.” Fortunately, the change in production doesn’t affect Grey’s overall sound, as her signature moody singer/songwriter style is still very much present here.
“Wear Me Out” will be available on Skylar Grey’s upcoming debut LP Don’t Look Down, out July 9.
