Big Beat/Atlantic recording artist Wynter Gordon has unveiled details of her eagerly anticipated new EP. â€œWITH THE MUSIC I DIEâ€ will arrive in stores and at all DSPs on June 28th.
The EP is highlighted by the breakout single, â€œTil Death,â€ alongside a number of new songs and previously unreleased remixes (tracklisting below). â€œTil Deathâ€ â€“ which is already available at iTunes, as is an exclusive collection featuring remixes by Dan Castro, R3hab, PolenRockers, Ken Loi, Denzel Park, and WaWa â€“ is currently blowing up at dance clubs nationwide. In addition, the trackâ€™s companion video â€“ directed by Adam Donald (T.I., Straight No Chaser, Lupe Fiasco, Wiz Khalifa) â€“ recently had its world television premiere on Logoâ€™s NewNowNext Music.
â€œTil Deathâ€ has quickly proven a sensation in Australia, where Wynter will release a full-length international debut album, also titled â€œWITH THE MUSIC I DIE,â€ on June 17th. The single follows Gordonâ€™s previous Down Under smash, â€œDirty Talk,â€ which earned #1 airplay and 3x-platinum ARIA certification.
In America â€œDirty Talkâ€ topped Billboardâ€™s â€œDance Club Play Songsâ€ chart upon its 2010 release, while also spending countless weeks as a Top 10 favorite on iTunesâ€™ â€œTop Dance Songsâ€ chart. The trackâ€™s success came hot on the heels of Wynterâ€™s popular collaboration with Freemasonsâ€™ on the UK dance hit, â€œBeliever.â€
Wynter Gordon is without doubt one of the most exciting new dance artists of recent years. A graduate of New Yorkâ€™s world famous LaGuardia High School For The Performing Arts, the Queens-born singer/songwriter first broke through in 2005 after penning the title track for Mary J. Bligeâ€™s #1 blockbuster, â€œTHE BREAKTHROUGH.â€ From there, Gordon contributed songs to such artists as Danity Kane and Jennifer Lopez (who included three Wynter-penned tracks on her new album â€œLOVE?â€), while simultaneously kickstarting her own stint in the spotlight with vocal appearances on co-written tracks by David Guetta and Poe Boy/Atlantic recording artist Flo Rida. The latter single, 2009â€™s â€œSugar (Feat. Wynter Gordon),â€ proved an RIAA platinum certified top 5 hit on Billboardâ€™s â€œHot 100â€ as well as a top 10 international smash.
Since then, Gordon has been hard at work crafting her much-anticipated Big Beat debut album. Slated for US release later this year, the as-yet-untitled collection is an innovative revelation, melding full-throttle dance tracks with irresistible pop hooks. All the while, Gordonâ€™s honeyed vocals ring loud and clear, adding yet another level of emotive power to her songs of heartache and struggle.
Along with her myriad other talents, Gordon is also a stunningly charismatic live performer who has spent the past two years headlining clubs all over the world, not to mention show-stopping appearances at such international events as this yearâ€™s Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival (where she shared the stage with Laidback Luke) and the Creamfields Australia 2011 festival tour. Wynter recently drew major acclaim for her performance of â€œDirty Talkâ€ on Logoâ€™s â€œNewNextNow Awards,â€ where she was also among the nominees for the â€œBrink of Fame â€“ Music Artistâ€ award.
