Sky Ferreira

really off topic but Sky's owns the masters of Night Time, My Time? I remember read somewhere that she owned her masters at the moment that she decided to pay herself the studio sessions but I don't remember if that's true. It could be Mandela effect.

Despite paying for the sessions herself. Captiol still owns the masters. She tried numerous times over the years to repress a vinyl but Capitol blocked her. She did independently fund the first green pressing. But Capitol still would've had to sign off on it.
 
My posts are very few and far in between in this thread, but I… don’t think Sky would come back, like, at all, if she didn’t have an album to present? Not unlike Kendrick or SZA, or even someone more traditional like Madonna, she probably has a statement to make, and I imagine it goes beyond one song.
Uh, I...

The thing is, someone at the label must have given her word that the album will come out this year or else I 100% don't believe she would have mentioned it during the press cycle. Mostly because she knows how embarrassing it would be if it didn't happen and the lashings on social media will reach new extremes.

I said it before but at this point, she just needs to lay it all out on the table in clear and concise terms. It's been nearly 10 years of not being able to release music, what's left to lose.
 
Apparently they gave the concept of the Don't Forget video to another artist at Capitol so she said she's over it / is giving up. I feel so sad for her.

I really don't blame her.

Why does it seem like Capitol is...so openly antagonistic/malicious with her? They really don't even try to hide it.
We've seen a lot of label purgatory girls over the years, but Sky's case feels particularly insidious and disgusting.

Artists often have clauses in their contract, particularly with major labels, that mean they can't defame or embarrass them publicly. It's probably not worth the potential legal hassle to do a tell-all which is why there's so many subliminals and hearsay around these holdups.

Someone like RAYE did it properly: blast on socials and create a viral moment and the label have no choice but to react because of the sheer amount of goodwill and media coverage behind her.

I think Sky could pull this off. It’s been more than a decade of them treating her like shit & her fans are very aware of it. I don’t doubt how petty executives can be, but I truly believe once people get wind of her story it’ll be horrific PR and they’ll probably want to cut their losses.

But then again, her situation is a lot more insidious than the other label purgatory girls. I can see why she wouldn’t want to do that.

Over a video?

Who the fuck cares! The song was released months ago and is dead. It's not even that amazing of a lead single anyway. Don't do a video and just release the MUSIC. She has songs like Guardian and I Pray For Rain just rotting. Sounds like another cop out.

I'm pretty sure they shelved her video that she already filmed because they wanted to use the concept for another artist. Would you not be pissed / defeated if your entire single release was sabotaged by your label and your ideas stolen? It seems like she was promised an album release / rollout and the same exact thing ended up happening that happened with the last campaign.

If she shot the video and it got shelved and the idea was given to another artist... that's some shady label stuff going on. She has so many tracks that could make for great music videos too... if they were actually released: Descending, Pray For Rain, Guardian, All My Lovers Die, and a ton of covers.

I dunno—I'm inclined to have sympathy for a woman who has been perpetually mistreated by her label, dealing with chronic illness, and the list goes on. She hasn't had a lot of wins in the past ten years, and the video not being released could be the final straw for her. We don't know what's going on behind the scenes, but I don't expect you to carry an ounce of sympathy or nuance for female performers given your post history, teebs.

None of us know what her relationship with Capitol is actually like but I fully believe her when she says she's been mistreated by them. She has literally nothing to gain from lying about it.
I 100% believe this but also sadly believe that she’s incredibly difficult to work with as well. Like it can be both.

I mean, the term "difficult" as often applied to female performers is unfortunately very loaded in the industry and its definition really depends on who you ask. Not saying you're doing that with your post as I generally get what you're saying - I don't think anyone here wants to deny her her agency, and like I said, the truest story of Sky vs. Capitol is one I doubt any of us will ever hear. But I'll never understand the immediate default to "she's lying", even after the last several years, because it just makes no sense to me and generally strikes me as weirdly mean-spirited.

This. I'm tired of the undercover misogyny in pointed statements like this.
