“We’ve been swimming on the edge of a cliff
I’m resistant, but going down with the ship
It’d bе so nice, right? Right?
If we could take it all off and just еxist
And skinny dip in water under the bridge.”
‘Skinny Dipping’ builds on the success of “Skin” released earlier this year, with Sabrina touching the world like never before. The track is the first taste of her full-length debut album with Island Records. In collaboration with legendary songwriters such as JP Saxe and Julia Michaels, Sabrina imagines a scenario that allows her to unravel past emotions and feelings. She has healed and has released all the anger and resentment she held. Sabrina previously stated that most of the inspiration for her music comes from her own life and experiences. Her song ‘Skinny Dipping’ is no exception, where she reminisces about her former relationship. The singer reassures listeners that the track emphasizes focusing on joy amidst trying, even when facing difficult moments.
Speaking about her inspiration behind the new track, Sabrina said:
Sabrina Carpenter’s new track arrived with a visually stunning music video directed by Amber Park. Inspired by the warm hues of the ’70s, ‘Skinny Dipping’ visuals are packed with nostalgic feelings that perfectly align with the song’s theme. As she seeks to move past a previous relationship, she throws water under the bridge.
We find the singer-songwriter writing letters to herself in an attempt to heal herself and let go of her grief. The video ends with Sabrina dancing in the street in a green dress, holding the box in her hand, as she throws the letters into the air, symbolizing her letting go of the past and embracing the future.
