“Scary Mask” mixes two very different genres together in a chilling, yet high-energy pop-rock track.
Jumping between a slow, melancholy beat and a roots metal sound, the track acts as a balanced genre identity crisis with a chaotic FEVER-crafted backdrop.
The singer finally dropped the collab on Twitter today, featuring a chilling album cover of Poppy wearing a “Scary Mask.”
“Scary Mask ft. @fever333out now!” the tweet reads.

After giving a 24-hour drop warning for her fans, the singer continued to tease the track with a lyric snippet a few hours ahead of the release.
“Never gonna take it off, so don’t touch me #scarymask,” the tweet reads.

The song’s music video dropped soon after, giving a horror-inspired backstory corresponding fittingly to the album art.
Check out the video below.
After initially teasing the track in April, the singer and FEVER 333 shared a social media exchange before she eventually confirmed the collab.
Poppy was interview by Billboard at the BBMAs where she revealed the track’s release date and first mentioned FEVER 333.
