When describing her second full-length album "Natural Causes", Skylar Grey cites a quote from Robert Redford, “This place in the mountains amid nature’s casualness toward death and birth is the perfect host for the inspiration of ideas.”

Writing and recording much of the album at her Park City, UT home, which she calls Grizzly Manor Studios, the five-time GRAMMY® Award-nominated multiplatinum singer, songwriter, and multi-instrumentalist breathed inspiration from her surroundings and exhaled songs that speak to the magic and majesty of nature.

Back when she lived in Los Angeles, Skylar Grey used to clear her head by taking long drives up the coast and through the redwoods, all the way up to Oregon. “I’d go by myself and listen to music the whole way, and just think about everything going on in my life,” says the five-time Grammy Award-nominated singer/songwriter/multi-instrumentalist.“ Those drives were kind of my happy place back then.” So when it came time to start working on her next album, Grey focused on writing songs that matched that introspective mood. “When I listen to the new songs, I imagine I’m driving through the woods alone again, on some kind of journey,” she says. “I wanted to make an album that could fit right into those kinds of moments.”

As the co-writer behind some of the most memorable chart-climbing songs in recent years—including tracks by Rihanna and Nicki Minaj, totaling more than 25 million singles sold globally—Grey also uses her refined grasp of songcraft to build a sound that’s gracefully melodic and intricately composed. In making the album, Grey partnered with her longtime producer Alex Da Kid (Imagine Dragons, X Ambassadors), as well as with Mike Elizondo and Mark Batson (a duo whose collaboration with Grey marks their only time working together outside of producing for Dr. Dre and Eminem). And on “Come Up for Air,” Grey again teamed up with repeat collaborator Eminem, who co-executive-produced Don’t Look Down along with Alex Da Kid.
