Danish artist Winnie Raeder has released her new single ‘BABY’.
Winnie has been nothing less than a revelation since she exploded into the music scene in 2019. Her debut EP ‘From Here’ and the stunning follow-up single ‘She’ drew global praise and attention. On her latest release the singers bluesy, soulful voice continues to mesmerise with a single of haunting and emotional fascination.
Describing the track, Winnie says:
“BABY is about wanting to clean your apartment because you know it’s not good for you to live amidst mess and disarray, but at the same time, there’s a voice in the back of your head that reminds you that’s how you’ve always lived and what you know.”
“Throwing away some of that garbage would mean having to get rid of some of the clutter you’ve learned to love. It’s basically that, but instead of your apartment, ‘BABY’ refers to your mind. I’ve always been very interested in people and our minds – what makes us tick and behave the way that we do. I find a lot of inspiration in that.”
‘BABY’ also marks a personal achievement for Winnie who as always aspired to self-produced.
“I’ve always wanted to write and produce my own music, and I’ve loved bringing ‘BABY’ to life. There are some brilliant female producers making music at the moment, but there aren’t enough, and that’s partly because women aren’t encouraged at a young age to explore production. A lot of female producers tend to feel a sense of imposter syndrome when they write and produce their own music, and that has to change.”
She continues: “I love being hands-on with all of the things that I do, so producing my own stuff has always been on my mind. I haven’t done it much before, and ‘BABY’ is my first real attempt to really produce, so it took a minute to get it right as everything was quite new to me. I’ve always paid a lot of attention when I’ve been in with other producers because I knew that one day I wanted to try and do it myself, so that’s definitely helped the process.”
Winnie has held several sold-out headline shows (including St Pancras Church and The Courtyard Theatre in London) and will be appearing at the 2020 Great Escape Festival, the Danish SPOT Festival plus BBC Music Introducing’s London showcase at The Lexington on March 5th.
Attendees should prepare to share an evening with a truly enthralling artist.
