The disco-influenced singer-songwriter (formerly known as Saint Pepsi) previews his debut album 'Prom King.'
Singer-songwriter Skylar Spence is gearing up for the release of his debut album Prom King by releasing his new single “I Can’t Be Your Superman.”
The track, which follows previously released tracks “Fiona Coyne” and “Can’t You See,” flows in the same disco-inspired vein with a more serious tone. “Superman is a song about a friend who was living very dangerously for a while,” the 22-year-old tells Billboard. “Around the time I wrote the song, I realized I was kind of an enabler of this behavior by not acknowledging the problem, but things soured as soon as I opened my mouth about it. It's not easy to help anyone who doesn't see the problem themselves, and that's where the song stems from.”
The Long Island artist (born Ryan DeRobertis and formerly known as Saint Pepsi) is currently gearing up for Prom King, out Sept. 18 via Carpark Records. In addition to dropping his debut, Spence is heading out on the road through the fall, playing select shows with Kero Kero Bonito.
