Background and Release Edit
"Mermaid" is a love song is about the risk of letting someone in completely and the courage of making yourself vulnerable and finding something that is worth drowning for.
In an interview with NME Skott stated: "'Mermaid’ was actually the first song that I decided that I had to keep entirely for myself, to perform and release under my own name Skott and that was the beginning of my artistry. ‘Mermaid’ is actually my oldest song and before writing the early piano version almost three years ago I thought I wanted to work behind the scenes only, making songs for other artists. But with the early sketch of Mermaid in my hands I decided to take the song the whole way from the piano at home to a stage and present it to the audience myself."
The song premiered on Annie Mac's BBC Radio 1 show on July 19, 2017.
An official remix was released on September 21, 2017 by Hosiannah.
