BUZZ CONTINUES TO BUILD AROUND ELECTRO-POP NEWCOMER THANKS TO THREE
HOT TRACKS, "17," "ONE," AND "OBSESSION," AND APPEARANCE IN ADS FOR
TOMMY HILFIGER AND CALVIN KLEIN


DEBUT ALBUM DUE THIS SUMMER ON CAPITOL RECORDS


March 2, 2011 - New York, NY - A sultry, enigmatic presence in global
ad campaigns for Tommy Hilfiger Denim and Calvin Klein's ck one, and a
media darling who's been featured in Teen Vogue, V, Interview, Nylon,
Marie Claire, Billboard, Entertainment Weekly and more, 18-year-old
singer-songwriter Sky Ferreira continues to build on the buzz
surrounding her with the release of As If! - a digital EP that will be
available from all digital retailers beginning March 22nd. The
lead-off track, "Sex Rules," is currently for sale on iTunes.


The five brand-new tracks will tide fans over until Ferreira's debut
album due out on Capitol Records this summer. Ferreira has been in
London and Sweden working on the album - a sparkling collection of
electronic pop tunes that combine lustrous melodies with spare,
digitized beats - with a host of A-list songwriters and producers,
including Swedish hitmakers Bloodshy & Avant (whom Ferreira worked
with after reaching out to them on MySpace when she was 15), Greg
Kurstin, Dallas Austin and Teddybears.


As If! follows on the heels of Ferreira's three successful tracks
"17," (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nr4EQtoY2lo) "One,"
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pxFFJu7RVuk) and "Obsession,"
(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qMvWA7Vv96w) music that Entertainment
Weekly has called "infectious, surprisingly sophisticated dance-floor
electronica." "Obsession" (written by OneRepublic's Ryan Tedder)
appeared on "Now What's Next" as a bonus track on the digital version
of Now That's What I Call Music, Vol. 35 and on the soundtrack to the
CW show The Vampire Diaries.


Ferreira's kittenish looks and free-spirited sense of personal style
led to her being chosen to appear in the youthful cast of musicians,
DJ's, models, artists, and athletes starring in the edgy global
advertising campaigns for Tommy Hilfiger's Kids of America
Spring/Summer 2011 Denim collection and Calvin Klein's ck one Spring
2011 lifestyle line, which was conceived by creative director Fabien
Baron and shot by renowned photographer Steven Meisel.


Ferreira also stars in Matt Porterfield's independent film Putty Hill.
This innovative narrative feature is anchored by Ferreira's
performance as Jenny, a teen struggling to find direction amidst the
loss of her cousin in Baltimore. Putty Hill has garnered acclaim from
top film critics around the world, as well as major festival attention
and awards following premieres at SXSW and the Berlin International
Film Festival. The film opened in February at The Cinema Guild at
Cinema Village in New York City.


The track-listing for As If! is as follows:


"Sex Rules"


"Traces"


"Haters Anonymous"


"99 Tears"


"108"

Check out what the press has been saying about Sky Ferreira:


"Few rising pop stars can claim they moved Michael Jackson to tears.
But then again, few rising pop stars have the glittery potential of
L.A. native Sky Ferreira." - Entertainment Weekly


"So what makes songstress Sky Ferreira such a special case?
Everything, basically. She's a rough-around-the-edges beauty with a
sterling voice, impeccably weird taste, and an almost maniacal
inability to take no for an answer." - Interview


"18-year-old Sky Ferreira is making her ascent with the help of good
old-fashioned bleached-blonde ambition. … The young singer's soulful
vocal prowess belies her age." - V


"Sky Ferreira is poised to be the next big thing on the pop music block." - OUT.com
