Swedish singer-songwriter Skott has recently released her highly-anticipated sophomore album “Roses N Guns”. The album is an organic journey that features ten songs inspired by nature and emotional influences. In a recent interview with CelebMix, Skott discussed the themes, creative process, and personal inspirations behind the album.
Skott drew upon emotions of life and death, heartbreak and love for the album. Her grandmother used to tell her that a silver bridge on a peaceful lake represents the place where loved ones cross into the afterlife, and that inspired her song “Silver Bridges”.
Similarly, “Memory Shore” was inspired by something her mother used to tell her as a child. Skott’s personal inspirations are reflected in the lyrics and themes of the album.
“I work and write with some of my closest and most trusted friends, who I’m lucky also happen to be very talented.” — Skott
The album’s title, “Roses N Guns”, is a wordplay on Skott’s name, which means both “sprout” and “gunshot” in Swedish. The title represents life and death, which are recurring themes throughout the album.
Skott’s journey of self-discovery is also reflected in the cover artwork, which features a giant map where each song is a location.
Skott produced or co-produced all of the songs on the album and worked with her closest and most talented friends. The creative process was similar to her previous work, but she learned that she could experiment more with production. She even played a violin solo for the first time in “Memory Shore” and plans to incorporate more violin in the future.
“It’s meant to be listened to from start to finish if you have time, but if I had to pick one, I’d say the title track, “Roses N Guns” does sum up the theme of the entire album pretty well. ” — Skott
Skott’s album takes listeners on a rollercoaster of emotions, with the title track “Roses N Guns” summarizing the theme of the album. The album ends with “Memory Shore”, a comforting song that gently tucks the listeners in goodnight.
Skott advises fans to listen to the album from start to finish, but if she had to recommend one song, it would be “Roses N Guns”.
Skott’s album “Roses N Guns” is a personal and emotional album that showcases Skott’s talent as a singer-songwriter and producer. Fans of Skott’s previous work will enjoy this album, which features a mix of nature and emotional influences.
The album is a must-listen for anyone looking for a journey of self-discovery and personal growth.
