On “Red Lips,” which was co-written with Shirley Mansion, singer/actor/model Sky Ferreira tries on the grunge-girl persona. Terry Richardson’s video for the track captures her in the kind of heavy eye makeup that makes a person look, well, like Shirley Manson. Tarantula-licking and lipstick-smearing work in concert with the crunchy, Greg Kurstin-produced guitar riffs to bring about the perfect ratio of sex to danger. In advance of her Ghost EP, which comes out via Capitol next Tuesday, October 16h, New Jersey producer Com Truise brings us his official edit of the track, cutting the streamlined edginess with some galactic synth-tweakery.
