Earlier this month when Wynter Gordon released the video for her new single ‘Still Getting Younger‘, the singer/songwriter tweeted she was a little nervous about having to share what’s next. On her latest side project, Wynter leaves the dance floor. While still being singed to Atlantic, she’ll be self-releasing a collection of four FREE EPs titled ‘The Human Condition’. The first one, ‘Doleo’ (Latin for pain) is out 9th July.
The lead single from the first EP is called ‘Stimela’ and sonically reminds us a little of early Phil Collins. The song was inspired by Hugh Masekala’s anti-apartheid song of the same name and features a chorus sung in Zulu.
She said to Billboard:
“The music I’m making now is music I’ve always made, I’ve just never been able to release it on a label,” Gordon tells Billboard. “I was growing into this person I am now, and I had to make the music that felt right and was passionate about. I didn’t feel like I was singing everything I wanted to sing, doing dance music and pop music. I wanted to make something that felt real to me. These EPs include every genre of music I like. I really just felt like I had to by myself.”
The EPs will be released through WynterGordon.com.
