Four years, about five aborted albums and quite a few money-earning fashion campaigns later, Sky Ferreira’s debut album ‘Night Time, My Time’ is finally out to buy in the UK.
To celebrate the happy day we never thought would come, we asked Sky 100 questions and demanded 100 answers.
This is how it went.
