Sky Ferreira

I'm start to believe that she doesn't commit with deadlines (for example, Don't Forget edit never being ready). So Capitol always turns off on her. For me, doesn't make any sense Capitol prevent her on release things AFTER the Night Time, My Time release and her already solidifing a image. It's like... they really thinking that they could make her go back to electropop?

I know she can be annoying with how she does or doesn't share information and she needs to work on that, but in terms of Capitol, yes, we know that her debut being a success wasn't warmly received by the label.

Even at the time, there were """insiders""" aka gays connected to the Capitol marketing department who called her ungrateful, on different online forums, over the funding and """promo push""" she got for I Blame Myself post-success.

And online gays are just online gays, but to have Sky confirm this year how Capitol treated her across various interviews confirmed the hostility towards her. She made it clear that Night Time, My Time's critical success was never perceived as the label being wrong and her proven right. It was treated more like her making up for set-backs somehow blamed on her and Capitol were now graciously finally going to give her a real Top 40 push after years in return.

The interviews this year have shown she feels no one at the label seems to get her.

I get Sky herself might have trouble being on time or meeting deadlines for whatever reason, but surely her touring team could help her avoid/correct that? Being late for festival gigs almost single every time is so weird.
 
Eh, anxiety/stage fright is a complex beast and I know from past experience when I worked in venues that often performers will just find some sort of fault backstage, front of stage, wherever to try and delay the inevitable.

She shouldn't be touring if she's this bad and unreliable, honestly, and it'll mean promoters are less likely to take a chance on her when she needs to promote the album in future. Getting a Lauryn Hill-esque reputation is not cute: festivals in particular cannot afford to have performers fucking around pushing things back.

Yeah I can imagine something like this might be at play, and the festival setting just makes it all worse.

Must be tough as I guess this is good money and press, but then it can also turn the other way and harm future opportunities.
 
Something music related has happened! This is not a drill!!

Night Time My Time has been randomly remastered(?) in Dolby Atmos on Apple Music and after a quick listen with headphones it’s… it’s a mixed bag. There’s a lot of stunning little changes to the levels that really elevate moments, and then there’s whatever they’ve done to You're Not The One. OOF the changes they’ve gone for are very unpleasant to me on that track especially (of all tracks to flop on too!). Reaaallyy wish Apple would let us be selective on which tracks get played in which format, instead of it being all on or all off, as I’d keep quite a few in the new Dolby sound! 24 Hours is gorgeous like this. Excited to give it another spin soon and listen even more intently.

Now the question is - did Sky oversee this work? Was she shut out of the room? Was it done at the label’s request, or hers? Does it indicate they’re re-invested in Sky? That more is on the way?? Help i’m finding optimism again someone come crush it, quick.

I think Apple might let you save some songs like "stereo" and once you leave the Dolby Atmos enabled, it will play a mixture of pre-saved songs (stereo) and online ones (Dolby Atmos). But can't confirm dd hope it works.

Hmmm I can imagine it could be something the label just did on their own, but at same time, it's Capitol x Sky Ferreira, the label that didn't have her full-2-EPs-and-1-album catalogue on Streaming.
At same time, I don't think we would ever hear such thing if the mixing was under her perfectionist hands.
