So Sky Ferreira Is Crazy… And It Is Awesome (NSFW!)

Sky Ferreira is easily one of the most exciting artists in alternative pop at the moment. The anticipation for her debut album has been such a long, drawn out process to the point where we’re all still a bit skeptical that its ever actually going to make onto shelves. Nonetheless, the record is slated for release later this month, and all systems are apparently go! The first real clue was that she scrapped yet another place-holder EP, You’re Not The One, and instead released the proposed title track as a single all on its own. The track is not only fantastic, but it has been announced as the lead single from her upcoming album (Read the review HERE,) which is a really good sign! The second clue came in the form of an actual album title, Night Time, My Time, alongside Clue #3: an actual tracklist! All of the scrapped-EP tracks were apparently, and suddenly, deemed album-worthy, and were rightfully absorbed into the record’s lineup. We’ve all been here before, though. Ms. Ferreira has scrapped more projects (she’s even had some literally deleted from iTunes!,) changed directions, and released flawless placeholders for no reason (the Ghost EP) than any of her fans will ever care to rationalize, so you can’t blame anyone for being skeptical.

So here we are, a few short weeks before the release of Night Time, My Time is supposed to go down, and a few short weeks after she was arrested in New York alongside boyfriend/DIIV-frontman Zachary Cole Smile for drug possession. Most recently, she’s had to drop out of her opening slot on Vampire Weekend’s current tour due to a vocal chord injury. For someone who’s yet to even release a debut album, there’s certainly been quite a bit of drama mixed in with the anticipation, hype, and occasional disappointment. Just today, Sky gave us one final clue that her album…an actual finished product… is actually going to make its way into our lives in the very near future: the album cover. Additionally, she presented us with one of her most shocking, but awesome moments to date. Well… let’s just say it’s a doozy!

Yes, those are her boobies. Clearly channeling the intersection of her inner-PJ Harvey (check out her iconic Rid Of Me cover) and Madonna, the cover not only provides the final proof we need that the album is actually coming, but that Sky Ferreira is actually crazy! Do we all love her for it, though? Absolutely. She’s actually behaving like a rock star! Not that I would ever advocate drug use or public nudity, but it is pretty awesome to see someone really captivating us like this again! When she first emerged onto the music scene, she seemed like this really cool chick was just a little off-beat; it was endearing. Every move she’s made since has proven that she’s not only way more offbeat than we could have anticipated, but she’s a legit artist who is whole-heartedly set on making sure her output is worthy of being put out. If the songs on her Ghost EP weren’t considered good enough album material, than I can’t even imagine the final quality of the ones that actually did make it onto the record. Nonetheless, we’re all paying attention now! Good on you, Sky!
