Skitszo is the debut studio album by American singer-songwriter and rapper Colette Carr, which was released as a whole on July 9, 2013 through Interscope. The album consists of four digital EPs, each featuring four songs, released two months apart. The full album includes all the songs from the EPs, plus four additional songs.


"(We Do It) Primo" was released on May 10, 2011 as Skitszo's lead single. Written by Carr herself and produced by Frankmusik, it samples Keane's song, "Somewhere Only We Know". "(We Do It) Primo" is a pop song with heavy synths. Lyrically, the record speaks of the just having fun, with "Primo" meaning, "Of top quality or importance". The bridge describes “doing it primo” by using various similes including: "sweeter than vanilla" and "playing all of this like it was Christmas". Despite being released internationally, "(We Do It) Primo" failed to chart. Carr makes lyrical references to label mates and fellow musicians Frankmusik, "feeling frank, spelling out the fear inside", a reference to his name and 2010 single "The Fear Inside", and Far East Movement, "better move it, rocketeer", a reference to their 2009 single "Rocketeer".

"Like I Got a Gun" is the second single for Skitszo. Carr released the single on iTunes on June 26, 2012. "Like I Got a Gun" was met with positive reviews from critics. Starpulse called it "a summer-ready party track." and an "ass slapping beat". A remix of the track featuring rapper YG was included on the first instalment of the album.

"F16" is the third single and, having previously being leaked online, was released November 13, 2012 and music video was released December 11, 2012. The song charted at #44 on EQ's Top 200 songs of 2012.

"Why Are You Leaving?" (featuring Kev Nish) was released as part of "Skitszo (Part 2)" and is the fourth single. The music video was released January 24, 2013 and the single also features Kev Nish from the band Far East Movement.

"Never Gonna Happen" is the fifth single for Skitszo and to date, has become Carr's most successful single.
