Cherrytree - Interscope Recording Artist Has Industry Going Skitszo Over Unconventional Release

Cherrytree - Interscope Recording artist Colette Carr releases album in unconventional method that has music industry and fans going Skitszo.

American singer-rapper Colette Carr, is such a dynamic and improvisational artist who is in up-to-minute contact with her audience, for the first time ever, Cherrytree Records will be making Colette's music available to her fans as fast as she makes it. The label is going to release The Skitszo Collection (her debut album) in four EP installments, with a new EP releasing every 2 months culminating in a 5th (the CD of the full album plus 4 new songs).

The reasoning behind this release approach is that Colette is so improvisational and in-the-moment that Cherrytree wants to match the delivery method to her audience with her spirit and flow. This is a pioneering new way to release music from a pioneering new Cherrytree artist.

The first single of the album, "(We Do It) Primo", was released on May 11, 2011. The song was number one on Billboard's "Uncharted Chart." The single, "SEX (feat, New Boyz)" was released December 13, 2012 and peaked at number 104 on the "US iTunes Pop Chart."The third single, "Like I Got A Gun", was released on June 6, 2012. The fourth single “F-16” was released on November 13, 2012 as a part of Skitszo, Part 1. The music video was released on December 11, 2012. Skitszo Part 1 peaked at number 12 on EQ Music's "Top Albums of 2012" chart. The fifth single "Why Are You Leaving" was released January 8, 2013 and music video was released on January 24, 2013.

"Skitszo" is a tribute to Carr's uncle, who was schizophrenic. "“It’s also a tribute to my uncle who suffered from schizophrenia, but more than that it’s a tribute to the man who showed me what true and pure creativity was before he passed away two years ago," said Carr. She described the style of the album as, "musically schizophrenic." Her uncle also inspired the video for Carr's previous single, "Back It Up."

On July 9, 2013, the full physical album will be released, featuring all the songs from the EP's, plus four new ones. Carr will also release video's for each of the EP's.

Skitszo, Part 1

"Skitszo Part, 1" has received positive reviews from music critics. ArjanWrites.com called Carr "A musical chameleon who can spit a rhyme, own a dance beat, belt out a lullaby and deliver a catchy pop hook," and also said, "It's nearly impossible to put a label on Colette Carr's music, but if there's one word to sum up her unique point of view it's that she's fearless."

"Artist Direct" also gave the EP a positive review. They described Carr's sound on the album as, "A unique combination of singing and spitting ("spinging"), is a wickedly inventive set of pop, hip-hop, and electro-pop."

EQ Music Blog also gave the EP a positive review, "Seriously, if the rest of Colette Carr’s album turns out as good as “part one”, then we are in for quite a wallop. 'Killswitch' hammered its way into my top ten tracks of the year and the hard-hitting “F-16″ proved that white female rappers aren’t to be dismissed. One to watch." They named "Like I Got A Gun" and "Killswitch" as the choice tracks.

Skitszo, Part 2

"Examiner.com" gave a positive review, saying "'Skitszo Part 2' is a wickedly inventive set of pop, hip-hop, and electro-pop." They also called Carr a rising star.
