Skylar Spence (formerly known as Saint Pepsi) has shared a new single titled “Superman” off his forthcoming album Prom King. The electro-flavored diddy has a catchy chorus and a flirty rhythm. It’s the perfect song to close out a hot summer.
In a recent press release, Skylar shared that the song is about “a friend of mine who was living very dangerously for a while. Around the time I wrote the song, I realized I was an enabler of this behavior by not acknowledging the problem, but things soured as soon as I opened my mouth about it.”
With such an upbeat melody, you’d never suspect the song had a darker side to it. Listen to the lyrics for more details on the backstory of the song.
Skylar Spence’s new album Prom King is set for release on September 18 via Carpark Records. This will be his debut alum under the new name Skylar Spence.
In celebration of the new album, Skylar will perform at a record release show on September 25th at Palisades in Brooklyn. Following the show, Skylar will set sail for his US fall tour, joined on the West Coast by Kero Kero Bonito.
