Skylar Grey - Moving Mountains

Skylar Grey mines her folk roots on her brand new song Moving Mountains. Following last year’s Cannonball (featuring X Ambassadors), the new cut is ripped from the same sonic fabric and features minimal instruments and an unfettered vocal. When given such grounded lyrics and soul-shaking emotion, Grey shines the most. Take a listen to the song below. “Instead of moving mountains, let the mountains move you,” she whispers.

“I’ve definitely gone on a lot of musical adventures over the past few years, working with people in hip-hop and with DJs and experimenting in all these different genres,” Grey says of her journey the past several years, which included the cheeky C’mon Let Me Ride pin-up with Eminem. “And it’s good to keep going on adventures, because you never know what you’re capable of. But this new album is very much me coming home, and doing something that’s most authentic to who I am at the core.”

The yet-untitled new LP (the follow-up to 2013′s Don’t Look Down) was mostly created in her home studio in Park City, Utah, and is expected later this year. “Being in Utah, where there’s peace and quiet and room to think, it really helped me to focus and create what felt right to me,” Grey adds.
