Background

In early 2015, Grey announced that she was working on a third studio album, which was due to come out in 2015. Grey later attempted to promote the album by joining American band X Ambassadors on their VHS Tour. She later revealed the release date would be on August 15, 2016. The release date was later pushed to September 23, 2016. Grey additionally claimed that she refused to have any guest features on the album, but eventually gave in when her former "Love The Way You Lie" collaborator Eminem offered to be on the album. He additionally produced "Come Up For Air". The album finds Grey collaborating with various prominent producers, including Alex Da Kid, Mike Elizondo, Mark Batson, and Symbolyc One.[citation needed]

Promotion and singles

Grey released the song "Cannonball", featuring American rock band X Ambassadors as the first buzz single from the album on March 31, 2016. The single was later revealed to have been removed from the tracklist after "Moving Mountains" was declared the first and lead single of the album. The official music video for "Moving Mountains" was released on VEVO the same day. The video was directed by Peter Harding Song inspired by her new home in Utah. The second single from the album, "Off Road", was released on July 22, 2016. The music video for the song was released on the same day in sponsorship with Samsung Gear 360. On September 2, 2016, Grey released the third single "Come Up For Air", which was produced by rapper Eminem. The fourth and last single released on the album, "Lemonade", was released on September 16, 2016. On September 22, 2016 Grey streamed a song on her album titled "Kill For You", which features Eminem, on Rolling Stone.

Critical reception

The album received rave reviews, Michael Smith of Renowned for Sound gave the album 5 stars out of 5, and called it a "masterpiece", writing "In terms of setting the mood, the album’s first full song Jump does this perfectly. The song makes perfect use of its sparse arrangement, revolving around a very minimal beat and hand clap combo backed by a repeating guitar line that moves the song forward as Grey sings over the top. [...] Skylar Grey has hands down created her best material yet on Natural Causes, and created a veritable masterpiece that will be remembered long after 2016 is behind us.".[10] Neil Z. Yeung of Allmusic.com gave the album 4 out of 5 stars, writing, "From the misty intro, "Wilderness," which turns the dial to an Auto-Tuned Bon Iver frequency, to the warm acoustic strum of the KT Tunstall-meets-Radiohead 'Moving Mountains', Natural Causes capitalizes on atmosphere and mood, opting to skip the scattered production of Don't Look Down and focus on earnestness and vulnerability." [11] Ben's Beat gave the album 7 out of 10, writing "Skylar Grey’s overall artistic vision on this project makes for a much more fully fleshed-out work than her debut, and despite the brief inconsistencies, provides us with some stunning slower tracks for the colder months".[12] Lucas Giello of Universe in Rear View gave the album A in a F to A+ scale, writing "Her vocals fit perfectly with the instruments and production, and proves that Grey is one of the biggest songwriters of this century."[13]
