Last July, Wynter Gordon released ‘Human Condition Pt 1: Doleo’, the first of four EPs. And today, she releases the second part of her ‘Human Condition’ series with ‘Pt 2: Sanguine’. The new compilation includes five colourful new anthems including ‘Tomorrow’, ‘Lucky Ones’, ‘TKO’, ‘Reach Out’ and ‘Levitate’.
The anthemic numbers are all coated with Wynter’s soulful vocals and more. My recommendation would be ‘TKO’, because it is so ipod-worthy! ‘Human Condition Pt 2: Sanguine’ is also available for stream and download after the jump!
Wynter Gordon showcases a relatively raw vocal performance while covering Natalie Imbruglia’s classic 90?s hit ‘Torn’. Wynter’s presentation was done for Billboard magazine’s ‘Candid Covers’ session, which also saw her perform ‘Kids’ from her new EP ‘Doleo’. An exclusive Q&A was also distributed.
The 26-year-old says she chose to perform 97?s ‘Torn’ because at that time she was preparing for graduation and moving on to junior high. I was in high school myself and thinking about my options for college the following year. Come to think of it, ’97 was a very good year for music. Aaliyah‘s ‘One In A Million’ and Mariah Carey‘s ‘Butterfly’ albums were released and I played those like the world was about to end.
Wynter Gordon discusses her writing contribution towards Ciara‘s new album ‘One Woman Army’. Wynter has been busy enjoying her own successes, not just as a solo artist but as a lucrative songwriter having penned hits for the likes of Mary J. Blige, Jennifer Lopez, Danity Kane and many more. Check out what she had to say in a new interview with Kempire Radio below.
Wynter was asked to elaborate on the song she wrote for Ciara and its musical direction. Wynter says of the song; “it’s very pop” and even compliments Ciara’s vocal abilities. It seems Ciara will be steering more towards pop for this new album, and I also have a good feeling that the new single will be very pop as well. I can’t wait to hear what she and Wynter have cooked up in the lab.
Wynter Gordon premieres the music video for ‘Stimela’, the lead single from her brand new EP ‘Doleo’. Wynter’s directorial debut was simple but very effective. The video conveyed a work of art that was not only emotionally powerful but expressive of the human’s spirituality. Netic from Game Rebellion also puts in a cameo appearance for the very abstract and minimalist visual. The concept involves humans being painted as free, powerful animals attempting to find their way.
Wynter Gordon’s follow up to her debut album, ‘With the Music I Die’, consists of 4 EPs each following a specific emotion.
The first, ‘Human Condition: Doleo’, which explores pain was released last night. ‘Doleo’ comes with some deep, powerful ballads and mind-soothing lyrics. The songs are a different direction from her usual dance influenced records such as ‘Dirty Talk’ and vice versa. The best part is that all of it is free.
Keep an eye out for the next one, titled ‘Furor,’ which should be released in the next couple of months.
Wynter Gordon is set to release plenty of (free) music this year! She’s gearing up to release four free EPs called ‘The Human Condition’. Each release will highlight different human emotions, as well as explore different genres including rock, trip-hop and “down-south hip hop and Celtic, classical music”. The first EP is called ‘Doleo’, which is Latin for “pain”. The lead single is called ‘Stimela’, which she debuted in concert back in April. The gorgeous track may surprise some folks because she explores the production of African-pop (which is being compared to early-80s Genesis and solo Phil Collins) rather than continue this generic dance-pop streak she’s been on lately.
She tells Billboard she was not really happy about doing dance music solely, and the EP’s will allow her to do the music she has always been passionate about. The track also draws inspiration from Hugh Masekala’s anti-apartheid song of the same name, in which she sings a chorus in Zulu. Get excited.
The first EP installment, ‘Human Condition Doleo’ will be out on July 9th.
Wynter Gordon is closing off her era for debut album ‘With the Music I Die’. And she’s doing so by releasing the final music video for her new single ‘Still Getting Younger’. The singer took to twitter to confirm she’s “going out with a bang” by putting out the dancey number, which was produced by Australian electronic duo Pnau. The Dan Eckman-directed visual is super cute and epitomises the fun side to a relationship. The random rooftop water fight, the laughter, the enjoyment. It’s so carefree and light-hearted that it’s starting to make me wish I was still in a relationship. Damn.
The 26-year-old has been hard at work on a new album, which is what I suspected. She recently played a couple of gigs and introduced a new track back in April, though it’s not confirmed whether it will appear on a follow-up or an upcoming mixtape.
‘With the Music I Die’ is out now.
On Thursday night, First Fleet Concerts presented urban dance diva Wynter Gordon (as well as Dev), where they played a set in Des Moines, Iowa.
Wynter performed a number of singles from her latest EP ‘With the Music I Die’, which included ‘Dirty Talk’ and ‘Til Death’. During her set, she debuted a brand new song titled ‘Stimela’, which is said to be from an upcoming mixtape. I need to hear it in studio quality before I make any judgements. There were rousing renditions of Rihanna‘s ‘We Found Love’ and No Doubt‘s ‘I’m Just A Girl’.
I totally enjoyed her live band performance of ‘We Found Love’. It was fantastic, not just vocally but she totally performed it and did her little groove on stage. I was sitting there like “Go Wynter! Go Wynter! Go Wynter!”
She is such a great performer, and deserves to be so much more than just a mixtape act. Seriously. Next week, she will be playing 10 dates across the country.
Watch her empowering set below!

Dance diva Wynter Gordon has just dropped the Bec Stupack directed visual for latest single ‘Buy My Love’. The tongue in cheek, fast-paced visual is fun, care-free and enables Wynter to get in touch with the vintage styles of the 80s!
The Axwell penned and produced cut is lifted from the singer’s digital EP ‘With the Music I Die’, which has so far only managed to see a release on Australian shores. The clip itself features cameos by Tristan Wilds of ’90210? fame and Zelda Williams. Check it out below!

Dance-pop songstress Wynter Gordon has shot the music video for new single ‘Buy My Love’ in Los Angeles, which is lifted from her EP ‘With the Music I Die’. The Bec Stupak directed visual features a cameo appearance by Tristan Wilds of ’90210? fame, as well as Zelda Williams.
The singer-songwriter has just wrapped up a short tour of the US with former Fall Out Boy front-man, Patrick Stump, which means Wynter can now put further focus into her new music. More importantly, she can now concentate on her own respective market after enjoying major chart success over in Australia. Check out more photos from the visual below.
Following the success of number one smash ‘Dirty Talk’ in Australia, Wynter Gordon has finally released the official music video for her new dance single ‘Til Death’. Again, this is exclusive to Australia as she appears to be getting a lot of love on their side of the pond. The track is lifted from her upcoming debut ‘With The Music I Die’ which is penciled in for a summer release.
The visual; a fun, carefree clip, features a bunch of young people at a party having a good time and getting smashed. Although you could have recorded this on your mobile, it still looked good and for a minute, I almost craved a wild party. Appreciatingly, the visual was cohesive with the song and she looked great! Check it out below…
What is it with female songstresses running away from their native US to release dance music overseas? Wynter Gordon joins Kat DeLuna, Mya, Nicole Scherzinger, Kelly Rowland and Amerie to tap into the ever popular dance culture outside of the United States. If they are encountering more success outside of the US, releasing music in other territories makes so much sense these days.
As shown in the photos, the songwriter was spotted on set this week shooting the music video for her new single ‘Till Death’. She is currently pursuing the Australian market because that is the place she is encountering the most success. Hot on the trail of her number one smash ‘Dirty Talk’ on Australia’s ARIA singles chart, ‘Till Death’ has just been released over there too. After releasing her EP, ‘The First Dance’, she is now putting the finishing touches to her debut album, ‘With the Music I Die’. Photos and audio enclosed below.
