Enigmatic Swedish songstress Skott today unveils a stripped back, acoustic version of her single, “Glitter & Gloss”. In this acoustic version, Skott’s vocals shine through over minimal guitar, peeling back another layer and showcasing yet another element of her seemingly boundless talent. The acoustic version of “Glitter & Gloss” is available everywhere today via Sony Music Entertainment UK/RCA Records. Listen to it HERE.
After dazzling crowds in Austin (SXSW), LA and New York with her big voice and captivating live performance, Skott looks to up the ante, returning to North America later this summer with two confirmed festival appearances, first at Wayhome in Ontario (tickets), then at Lollapalooza in Chicago (tickets).

Earlier this year, Skott released her first ever music video for “Glitter & Gloss”— directed by Zhang + Knight. The video was beautifully shot over two days in Ukraine. Watch it HERE. As her first release of 2017, “Glitter & Gloss” follows previous singles, “Lack of Emotion,” “Amelia,” “Wolf” and her stunning debut single from last summer, “Porcelain,” which snagged a coveted slot on the official FIFA 17 soundtrack.
Skott spent her early years in a remote forest community run by a collection of outcast folk musicians. Together they built a small but supportive network, quite far from the nearest populated city. There, surrounded by nature she thrived, learning to appreciate life without all the distractions associated with living in a city. Largely sequestered from contemporary pop culture, it wasn’t until Skott ventured into the city during her mid-teens that she listened to contemporary music for the first time.
The acoustic version of “Glitter & Gloss” is available to download and stream on all digital platforms via Sony Music Entertainment UK/RCA Records.
