Live in Los Angeles? Love Skylar Grey! You're about to have a super happy FRIDAYYY!
We have a pair of tickets to give away for her show at The Roxy on Tuesday, November 1st 2011.
To have a chance to snag the tickets, leave a comment on this post! We'll give you over the weekend to get your entries in (please one per person) and end this contest on Monday, October 17th at noon ET. Wednesday, October 19th by Noon EST (We decided to extend it for those that may have missed out over the weekend). We'll pick a winner at random and get you all hooked up shortly thereafter.
Need a refresher? Make sure you check out her video for her single "Invisible", which comes from her upcoming album, Invinsible, which is coming soon to some eardrums near you.
Skylar Grey offers up the visuals to her slow burning track "Invisible" today and the visuals are pretty dark. The colour tones obviously lead you to a bleak state of mind from the offset with greens and greys dominating the cityscape but I suppose in a way the video gives a little hope. Maybe. A little. Until Skylar bursts into flames and well then what can you do?
Skylar is expected to release an album in 2012 but for now this will have to do for fans. Enjoy.
Soul Culture points to this interesting take on Eminem and Dr. Dre's hit track "I Need A Doctor" from the youtube sensation that is Karmin. Recorded for Billboard at Lollapalooza, they begin with a variation on the original using a stomp box and acoustic guitar before being joined by Skylar Grey herself midway through the track. The performance is great and it's nice to see that all the artists have a mutual respect for each other, so much so that they'll step in and sing with one another at any given opportunity.
I wasn't particularly big on the original version of Skylar Grey's official first single "Invisible" but let legendary director David Lynch get ahold of the track and he turns it into a dark, creepy, yet beautiful masterpiece. Take a listen to the remix below courtesy of NME. "Invisible" drops August 9th on iTunes.
Newest pop sensation Skylar Grey performed her first show (under the Skylar monkier) at The Rickshaw Stop in San Francisco and debuted new songs from her upcoming debut album Invinsible (yes, that is spelled correctly). Check out two of her newest tunes, which I had the pleasure of getting a preview of earlier this week "Building A Monster" & "Beautiful Nightmare" in the player above, as well as the rest of her set including a performance of her latest single "Invisible", the upcoming Marilyn Manson collab "Can't Haunt Me" and an amazing piano medly of chart topping guest features ("Coming Home", "Words I Never Said", "I Need A Doctor" & "Love The Way You Lie Pt. 2") after the jump, courtesy of Skylar Grey News.
But that isn't all folks, on August 9th, Interscope will be releasing Skylar's first official single "Invinsible" on iTunes along side a remix single for the "street" single "Dance Without You" which features remixes by R3hab, Monsta, Alvin Risk and TV on The Radio/Maximum Balloon's Dave Sitek. Take a listen to Dave Sitek remix of the track below and you can also check out the full tracklisting after the jump and hear the rest of the remixes at Skylar Grey News.

Check out the first official single from Skylar Grey's debut album Invinsible (yes that is the correct spelling). The track was debuted minutes ago on Ryan Seacrest's show on Kiis.Fm (as you can tell by the tags), so if you missed out on the show you can still hear the track in the player above. The track was once again produced by Alex Da Kid. The track is alot more radio friendly than the previous buzz track "Dance Without You", it kinda reminds me of a Bruno Mars track so I'm more in favor of the previous than the latter. But let us know what you think of this new track in the comments below.
