There's something about Sky. Charming, casual, coy and a little goofy (and I mean that lovingly), this rapidly emerging pop siren is being hailed as one of pop music's most promising new talents. And that claim certainly should not come as a surprise. At only 18 years old, the Hollywood singer has already collaborated on tracks with some of the biggest names in the business including Linda Perry, Greg Kurstin, Dallas Austin, Nicole Morier and Swedish production duo Bloodshy & Avant who first discovered her.
Ferreira is currently prepping her debut record that is slated for release on the magical date of January 11, 2011. In the meantime, we will be treated to more of Sky's music. In the U.K. she is stirring up a storm with the incredibly catchy "One," while her debut single in the U.S. will be "Obsession." (The digital-only "17" that came out in May was intended as a tastemaker.)
I caught up with Sky in an exclusive interview via video to chat about her new album, how she ended up working with all of those hit writers and the sobering reality of the business side of music. On her way to the location of the interview in New York, Sky ended up in a major downpour that gave us a bit of a slow start, but things warmed up nicely throughout the interview. Make sure to watch the entire piece in which also reveals some interesting thoughts about gays, Madonna and Robert Patterson. Watch Sky's phenomenal video for "One" after the jump.
