Skott has dropped a brand new EP.

Titled ‘Stay Off My Mind’, it features a title track built around legendary indie whistle-banger Peter, Bjorn and John’s, ‘Young Folks’

Speaking about the song, Skott explains: “I’ve been working a bit with Bjorn from Peter Bjorn & John, and we meant to replace the sample, but it just worked so perfectly so its ended up in the song. The producers and I couldn’t decide on a bpm for the song – when the verse felt fast, the chorus felt slow, and vice versa, so the song actually switches tempo four times”.

“Ultimately it’s a song about missing someone so much that you’re almost living more in the past than in the present. It’s bittersweet because we can have such fond memories, but life goes on and sometimes having flashbacks can keep you from moving on.”

Skott returns to the UK this March, where she’ll support MØ on tour.
