Los Angeles, CA, April 01, 2018 --(PR.com
)-- The fourth single “Lay Me Down” from the new album “Marmalade” by international performer, recording artist and Producer Jamie “Sky” Skylar will be released on Tuesday, April 3rd, according to a spokesperson for Prophet Records.
Following the release of the first three singles, It Makes Me Crazy, I Know You Know the Walrus Too and Marmalade, Lay Me Down is the fourth and final single to be released prior to the release of the album titled Marmalade on April 27th - available in select stores and on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, Pandora, YouTube and other music sites worldwide. Pre-sales for the album begin April 16th and will offer fans a pre release discount through April 26th.
“Lay Me Down is a very special song,” Skylar said, “because it speaks to the way we’re supposed to love one another.” “About being able to hold on or let go as the future unfolds without anger, resentment, judgment or being hurt, and the promise of friendship in the future to honor that love, no matter what. When it comes to love, clearly, we humans are still in our infancy and still have a lot to learn about real and unconditional love,” Skylar said. “Because, if we truly love someone, doesn’t that mean we want them to be happy, no matter to whom or where that takes them?”
Doing more than singing or talking about love, Skylar walks the walk, and has pledged a significant portion of the proceeds from the sale of the single It Makes Me Crazy to The Hunger Project. In response to this generous gesture, the Jamie “Sky” Skylar Fan Club is encouraging everyone to buy the single and encourage everyone they know to buy it too, because we all truly can make a difference.
Also contributing to the magic at the Hyde Street Studios (San Francisco) and LAFX (Los Angeles) were multi Grammy® Award-winning Engineer Mark Needham (The Killers, Paul Simon, Fleetwood Mac, Chris Isaak); Drums and Percussion, Ernest “Boom” Carter (Bruce Springsteen-Born to Run); Bass, Bobby Vega (Etta James, Zero); Lead and Rhythm Guitar, William (Bill) “Sputnik” Spooner (The Tubes, From Mall to Mars); Guitar and Steel Guitar, Jeff Watson (Night Ranger); Keyboards and Strings, Co-Producer George Michalski (San Francisco, Yosemite, Barbra Streisand’s Greatest Hits, Vol. 2); and Keyboards and five time Grammy® Award-winning Producer John Jones (Celion Dion, Duran Duran).
A limited tour, television and other appearances are planned to support the album, subject to Skylar’s prior filming and other commitments. Skylar and Jones will team up again later this year for the soundtrack of the upcoming feature film “The Caul of Moijan” written, produced and directed by Skylar for Skylar Film Studios, LLC. Family ties of note, also in the business, include Skylar’s son, Producer Dylan Johnson (Waterfront Property), and actors, brother Don Johnson (Miami Vice, Nash Bridges) and niece Dakota Johnson (Fifty Shades of Grey).
