Swedish singer-songwriter Winona Oak delivers a brand new stunning single ‘Island Of The Sun’ featured along with an official music video
The new single “Island Of The Sun” was produced by Chris Lyon (Rina Sawayama) and Valley Girl (Dua Lipa, Caroline Polachek), ‘Island of the Sun’ heralds the upcoming arrival of the acclaimed songstress’s much-anticipated debut album, ISLAND OF THE SUN, due later this year.
Winona Oak says, “This song was created on a sunny evening in Los Angeles when I was going through a really tough time and felt more homesick than ever,” says Winona. “I grew up on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean, approximately 5360 miles from LA in the middle of the Nordic forests of Sweden on a small island called Solens ö, a.k.a. Island of the Sun. The island works as a metaphor for a place when everything’s peaceful and simple. Like that time in your childhood when the world is only as big and beautiful as you make it, you know as we grow older we tend to complicate things. I want the island to represent a happy place in ourselves or in a relationship, a bittersweet yearning for a place we ache to go again.”
‘Island of the Sun’ follows Winona Oak’s 2021 collaboration with breakout bedroom pop star ELIO ‘Nobody Loves Me’, released in celebration of International Women’s Day. Last year also saw Winona share the graceful and intimate ‘Old Insecurities’.
Winona celebrated SHE with a stirring live performance of the title track as part of CBS’ The Late Show with Stephen Colbert’s #PLAYATHOME series.
