Containing a cheeky sample from Peter, Bjorn & John...

Scandinavian singer-songwriter SKOTT has announced the release of her four-track EP, ‘Stay Off My Mind’.

The track reflects SKOTT’s artistic evolution and is an obvious breakaway from her haunting singles, ‘Porcelain’ and ‘Wolf’.

The new release a cheeky contribution from Peter Bjorn & John - a drumbreak sample from their whistle-tastic 2006 release 'Young Folks’.

Discussing the production process, SKOTT explained; “I’ve been working a bit with Bjorn from Peter Bjorn & John, and we meant to replace the sample, but it just worked so perfectly so its ended up in the song. The producers and I couldn’t decide on a bpm for the song - when the verses felt fast, the chorus felt slow, and vice versa, so the song actually switches tempo four times”.

Explaining the themes behind the track, SKOTT said; “Ultimately it’s a song about missing someone so much that you’re almost living more in the past than in the present. It’s bittersweet because we can have such fond memories, but life goes on and sometimes having flashbacks can keep you from moving on”.

Check out the EP, ‘Stay Off My Mind’, below.
