Yesterday (August 15), videos of a Sky Ferreira billboard in New York City’s Times Square were posted online by Instagram user @free.skyferreira. The sign shows a photo of the singer with bold letters reading “FREE SKY FERREIRA.”
The account, which has been active since March 2021, has been campaigning for the Ferreira’s release from her record label. “Sky Ferreira has been held hostage by her label Capitol Records for almost a decade,” a pinned post says. “They’ve been blocking the release of her sophomore album Masochism since 2015.”
Another post details how you can help the Free Sky Ferreira movement, which includes actions like signing the petition, sharing posts, and flyering.
The FADER has reached out to Capitol Records for comment.
