There’s nothing indie about Sky Ferreira. The singer/model/actress’s almost meteoric rise to fame has been pushed along by affiliations with A-listers like her mentor Michael Jackson (!!!) and friend Katy Perry, and her single “Everything Is Embarrassing” was the cult hit of 2012. The song’s undeniably catchy beats, simplistic hooks and lovelorn lyrics make for a serious earworm. Ferreira’s much delayed debut album, I’m Not Alright, is scheduled for release in early 2013 and based on tracks like “Lost in My Bedroom” (which came out Jan. 2) and “Red Lips” (co-written with Garbage’s Shirley Manson) we anticipate a hit.
