Winona Oak Signs to Neon Gold/Atlantic Records, Debuts Video For 'Don't Save Me' Cover: Exclusive
Winona Oak has signed to Neon Gold/Atlantic Records and debuted a euphoric video for her cover of Haim's "Don't Save Me" today (Dec. 10), Billboard can exclusively announce.
The Swedish singer-songwriter's haunting voice is perfectly complimented by neon lights and dreamy kaleidoscopic shots in the new video. She gives her own slowed-down spin on Haim's upbeat 2012 track alongside gorgeous visuals, as the scenes shift through flowery wallpaper, vintage cars and a Barbie doll-filled bathtub.
"Don't Save Me" was originally released by Neon Gold/Columbia, and Winona's cover was recorded for Neon Gold's 10th anniversary compilation NGX: 10 Years of Neon Gold.
“The uniqueness in every artist is encouraged," Winona tells Billboard of why she’s happy to sign to Neon Gold. "There’s no such thing as trying to shape someone into a specific frame, or into something they’re not."
"We've been enchanted by Winona since the second we met her on one of our writing retreats last year; it was an instant connection and we couldn't be happier to call her family today," Neon Gold co-founders Derek Davies and Lizzy Plapinger tell Billboard in a joint statement. "With a songwriting ability beyond her years, a vocal and range that’s out of this world and a show-stopping look like she's just stepped off a 1950's movie screen, she's a rare treasure and we're beyond thrilled to be a part of her journey."
