COLETTE CARR RELEASES LONG-AWAITED DEBUT ALBUM SKITSZO TODAY ON CHERRYTREE RECORDS /INTERSCOPE
INCLUDES NEW 'CLAV-BANGER' SINGLE “I DON’T WANNA GO”
July 9, 2013— Santa Monica, CA — Rapper-Singer Colette Carr releases her 20-song debut album, Skitszo today via Cherrytree Records/Interscope.
Having released Skitszo Parts 1, 2, 3 and 4 to blog-acclaim and fervent fan ("Goers") support, Colette now unleashes the complete Skitszo album featuring head-bobbing, new single “I Don’t Wanna Go." Carr has co-written all of the songs on Skitszo and collaborated with super-producers RedOne, Martin “Cherry Cherry Boom Boom”
Kierszenbaum, Frankmusik and The Cataracs. Colette’s combination of singing and spitting (“spinging”), combined with her unique flow and unexpected lyrics are a wild mix of sassy humor and spitfire personality. Never has her immediately contagious style been more present than in her new single "I Don't Wanna Go" which blends the best of Biz Markie, Digital Underground and Bugs Bunny and mixes it with a healthy splash of Colette's charisma and Malibu sunshine.
Carr has been creating and innovating at the same time. The MTVU top video winner and Billboard Unsigned Chart topper released her music in the most topical and urgent way - by issuing Skitszo at the exact pace in which her audience craved it - in five 4-song installments delivered every 2 months leading up to today’s release.
"I'm not gonna say this wasn't high-speed stakes ," confesses Colette. "I definitely could have driven off the Autobahn at any point, but it led to some of the most exciting musical experiences of my life and I couldn't be prouder of this album and my Goers for spurring me on like the thrill-seeking maniacs they are."
Colette’s videos have now racked up more than 16 million views on VEVO while her latest single, “Never Gonna Happen” has garnered over 5 million ticks. Check out the Skitszo videos here.
