Sky Ferreira debuted new material at the Belasco Theater in L.A. last night. She also brought DIIV’s Zachary Cole Smith on stage for a cover of Hole’s “Asking For It.” Additionally, Ferreira told Billboard that she’s working with Night Time, My Time producers Ariel Rechtshaid and Justin Raisen again on her next album as well as collaborating with Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie (whom she describes as a mentor) and aiming to nail down some studio time with Gesaffelstein. Ferreira’s description of the new material:
Right now, I have the opportunity to try things. I’m enjoying myself a lot more. I think I’m in a different headspace than I was last time out, because so much has happened in the last year and a half. I think [the album] will be a little heavier. It’s not going to be an electronic album completely — it’s going to be a blend of everything.
She also spoke about splitting with John Mayer/Miguel manager Troy Carter — Ferreira is now managing herself — and she discussed her experience touring with Miley Cyrus. Furthermore, she said she has a new A&R at Capitol Records who’s more in tune with her vision and ready to properly promote her next release:
“I don’t just want it to be put out there again,” she says, referring to a perceived lack of promotion around Night Time, My Time. “I feel like I’ve been sitting at the DMV for 10 years. I did all my paperwork, I passed my test, but they still haven’t called my number. It’s all right, but it’s a lot of waiting.”
