Eagerly Awaited Collection Highlighted by the Smash Hit, "Bandit"; Sultry Clip Declared MTV Hits' "Hit of the Week"; Acclaimed New R&B Star Named Special On-Air Correspondent for 106 & Park Live During 2015 BET Awards Weekend; Upcoming Performances Include ReVolt Live & Verizon's "Now Playing" Tour; "EMOTIONALLY UNAVAILABLE" Available Now

NEW YORK, NY--(Marketwired - Jun 23, 2015) - Atlantic recording artist Justine Skye has announced today's release of her much-anticipated new EP. "EMOTIONALLY UNAVAILABLE" is available now at all DSPs http://smarturl.it/JustineSkyeUE.

"EMOTIONALLY UNAVAILABLE" is highlighted by such extraordinary tracks as "Anticipation (Feat. Kranium)," "I'm Yours (Feat. Vic Mensa), and the new smash hit "Bandit" (see attached tracklisting). Produced by the Insomniaks (Trey Songz), "Bandit" has already earned rave reviews from such high profile outlets as Complex, which declared the "moody, slow-burning track" to be "another step in the right direction for Skye, who, let's face it, has the potential to be in the ranks alongside your favorite pop star by next year."

"Bandit" is accompanied by a compelling companion video recently named MTV Hits' "Hit of the Week" after a duel premiere via MTV Hits and MTV Jams. The clip -- co-directed by Itchy House Films (Rick Ross, Meek Mill, Wu-Tang Clan) and Justine herself -- is streaming now at www.youtube.com/watch?v=EAAHCWFdtEU.

Currently poised to serve as 106 & Park's "Special Correspondent" during coverage of this weekend's 2015 BET Experience and 2015 BET Awards, Justine recently heralded "EMOTIONALLY UNAVAILABLE" with a series of acclaimed live dates dubbed "The "Bandit Mini Tour." The tour's Washington, DC stop earned high praise from YouKnowIGotSoul.com, which wrote, "Weaving in and out of both melodic and rhythmic/rap flavored vocals, (Skye) display(ed) her skills over hip-hop inspired original and cover tracks that incorporated heavy R&B melodies." Next up for Atlantic's Purple Unicorn includes a performance this week of her two new hits, "Bandit" and "I'm Yours" featuring Vic Mensa at ReVolt Live! and an exclusive set at Verizon's "Now Playing" Tour. A major US tour schedule will be unveiled soon -- for regular updates and ticket information, please visit www.justineskye.com/tour.

Beloved by her many fans as "The Purple Unicorn," Justine Skye blew up the Internet at just 16 with a hugely popular Tumblr page showcasing her unique personality, style, and extraordinarily soulful voice. The Brooklyn-born artist soon joined the legendary Atlantic Records roster and in 2013 released "EVERDAY LIVING," acclaimed by The Fader as "a seven-track EP full of simmering, lovelorn tracks." The following summer saw the arrival of Skye's biggest hit to date, "Collide (Feat. Tyga)," which proved a top 40 favorite on Billboard's "US R&B/Hip-Hop Airplay" chart upon its August 2014 release. Produced by DJ Mustard (2 Chainz, YG, Jeremih, Kid Ink), the track's companion video is even more successful, earning more than 1.6 million views thus far at Skye's official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/watch?v=-AgYGrXxEIg.

Skye has received rapturous attention from a variety of high profile media outlets, including features in SEVENTEEN, COMPLEX, NYLON, The Fader, V, Ladygunn, and Galore. Recent highlights include Teen Vogue naming her among "the seven singers who are shaking up the music scene" in their "2015 Music Issue."
