New Choice: Skylar Spence, formerly Saint Pepsi, teases new album with video and Coke reference
Back in January Ryan DeRobertis’ electronic pop project Saint Pepsi cited some legal issues and changed its name to Skylar Spence, swapping out a heavenly take on the soft drink in favor of a character from Woody Allen’s Everyone Says I Love You, which was also the name of a 2013 track from the Long Island producer.
Now Skylar Spence is prepping a new record to be released June 16 via Carpark, and he did it with the help of a 41-second teaser video that references Coca-Cola in the first eight seconds. You can watch the vintage video clip below.
Meanwhile, DeRobertis’ vaporware will be in full effect this summer, as Skylar Spence sets out on a handful of North American dates that includes a July 30 live dance party at Great Scott in Allston.
