Skylar Grey Releases New Track with X Ambassadors

By  USDR

Five-time GRAMMY-nominated singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist Skylar Grey releases a new single, “Cannonball,” featuring her KIDinaKORNER/ Interscope Records labelmates X Ambassadors, today via all digital and streaming partners. Check it out HERE. Grey has also shot a video for “Cannonball” with X Ambassadors, which will premiere on Vevo in the coming  weeks.

“Cannonball,” which Grey co-wrote with its producer Alex Da Kid, Sam Harris, Noah Feldshuh, Casey Harris, and Adam Levin, is also featured in EA’s FIFA 16 soundtrack, which was released yesterday, alongside songs from Of Monsters And Men, Beck, and Disclosure, among many  others.

“Sam and I wrote Cannonball about the power of will and how it can be an underdog’s greatest advantage. It’s one of my most energetic songs off the new album, but I’m definitely weaving my folky roots into everything these days,” says  Skylar.

Grey will hit the road for a U.S. tour with X Ambassadors kicking off October 20th. Please see below for all upcoming  dates.

Grey’s critically acclaimed album Don’t Look Down, executive produced by Eminem and Alex Da Kid, was released by KIDinaKORNER/Interscope Records and debuted at #8 on the Billboard Top 200. She is also responsible for co-writing some of the most memorable songs to light up the Billboard Hot 100 and iTunes sales charts, totaling more than 25 million singles globally. Grey has worked with an array of artists co-writing and featuring on songs with Dr. Dre, Eminem, Nicki Minaj, will.i.am, Zedd, Kid Cudi, Diddy, Moby, David Guetta, Kaskade, Cee Lo, T.I. and many  more.

Most recently, Grey was included on the highly successful soundtrack for the film 50 Shades of Grey with her song “I Know You,” which reached No. 1 on the iTunes Top Songs chart while the video is fast approaching 30 million Vevo views.
