WINGER has unveiled the official music video for their latest single, “Voodoo Fire,” extracted from the band’s seventh studio album titled “Seven,” which was released through Frontiers Music Srl in May
The 12-track album was meticulously crafted under the guidance of WINGER‘s frontman, Kip Winger, and was recorded in the vibrant musical hub of Nashville.
Earlier this year, in January, WINGER embarked on the creation of music videos for three tracks from the “Seven” album: “Tears Of Blood,” “It All Comes Back Around,” and “Proud Desperado.” Just as with the previously mentioned tracks, the visually captivating “Voodoo Fire” video was directed by the talented Jack Edward Sawyers. This latest LP follows in the footsteps of their 2014 release, “Better Days Comin’.”
In the spring of 2020, WINGER orchestrated a unique project, inviting a constellation of artists, friends, and fans, including luminaries like Alice Cooper and members of SCORPIONS, STEELHEART, and WARRANT, to lend their voices to a collective rendition of “Better Days Comin’,” the titular track of their sixth studio album. This collaborative effort resulted in a poignant music video for the new version of the song, which debuted in late April of that same year.
Hailing from the late 1980s, the group surged into the limelight with their eponymous debut release in 1988. The album birthed chart-toppers “Seventeen” and “Headed For A Heartbreak,” earning platinum status in sales. The chart presence of “Winger” on The Billboard 200 extended beyond 60 weeks, reaching its peak at an impressive #21.
Their subsequent album, “In The Heart Of The Young,” continued the streak with platinum sales, featuring hits like “Can’t Get Enuff” and “Miles Away.” However, the band encountered shifts in the musical landscape during the mid-’90s, coupled with unexpected jests on MTV’s popular show “Beavis And Butt-Head,” leading them to a hiatus in 1994. The band’s reformation in 2001 marked a triumphant return, and they’ve maintained their musical journey since. Kip Winger himself achieved a remarkable feat, garnering a Grammy nomination in 2016 for the classical album “C.F. Kip Winger: Conversations With Nijinsky,” a collaboration with the esteemed San Francisco Ballet Orchestra.
