Sky Ferreira Talks That Album Cover, Controversy & Not Being Taken Seriously

f21369364acf7d14aaad26a91f411338 Sky Ferreira Talks That Album Cover, Controversy & Not Being Taken Seriously

Sky Ferreira‘s long-long-awaited debut Night Time, My Time hits retailers next week, and the songbird is hyping the album with some smartly curated press — including a revealing interview with Pitchfork where she discussed the sound and shape of her new musical direction and how she’s evolved over the ten million years since she first signed her deal, back when dinosaurs roamed the earth.

It’s more likably surly stuff from the singer, who explains how she ended up with the haunting half-nude photo that’s now her album artwork — ”Initially, we thought, ‘I’ll stand in the shower because the green wall looks cool,’” she said. “And then it was like, ‘Why is she dressed in the shower? This looks fucking weird.’”

She also talked about the largely unfair pressures put on her — and how she feels like she can’t ever quite win. As she explained:

I’ve literally had to go through all my awkward stages in public. I was doing interviews at 16 and I didn’t know what I was talking about. I was just joking around. People still bring up things to me that I said five years ago. People want you to stay a certain way because they like you better that way. Then some people don’t like that version, so they say, “You’re a fake.” You’re either too ugly or too pretty. Too fat or too skinny. You’re on drugs or you’re too prude. If you’re friendly, you’re fake. If you are mean, you’re a bitch. I just realized that you can’t satisfy everyone.

The whole interview is well worth a read — catch it over at PitchforkNight Time, My Time drops October 29.
