Big Sean and Skylar Grey

Skylar Grey gets a blast from the past in the video for “Back From the Dead” co-starring Big Sean and Travis Barker. The singer-songwriter is haunted by a former lover as she walks through a museum filled with dioramas, grizzly bears, and grey wolves in the black-and-white clip.

“‘Back From the Dead’ is a song about somebody coming back into your life that you thought you would never see again and it’s like, what do we do now?” said Skylar.

Big Sean appears to be invisible to Skylar as he delivers his verse with skulls and a skeleton by his side.

“Back From the Dead” is the latest single from Skylar’s album Don’t Look Down, which debuted at No. 8 in July.

Video: Travis Barker & Yelawolf – ‘Push Em’

Travis Barker and Yelawolf

Rock meets hip-hop, with a little bit of rage, in the thumping video for “Push Em” from drummer Travis Barker and rapper Yelawolf.

“The song has the energy/angst of a punk rock song with Yelawolf rapping over a double-time beat and a chorus that could instigate a fight anywhere,” the Blink-182 rocker told Rolling Stone. “With the video, [director] Jason Goldwatch and I just tried to match the high energy of the song with a visual that sets the same pace. It was shot over a couple shows during Yelawolf’s current Slumerican tour and a day drive with Yela and I in my ’64 Rivi.”

The record can be found on the duo’s collaborative Psycho White EP, due November 13.
