Winona Oak Releases New Song “Jojo”
Swedish singer-songwriter Johanna Ekmar, aka Winona Oak released a new song “Jojo” along with a music video on May 5, 2022.
The song is sixth single off of her upcoming debut album “Island of the Sun”, which is set to be released on June 10, 2022 via Atlantic.
It was written by Winona Oak, Gustav Nyström and Jocke Berg.
The video was directed by Julian Gillström, who also directed Winona Oak's “Piano In The Sky”, 'SHE”, “Island Of The Sun” and “Baby Blue”.
“Jojo” is her nickname. Winona Oak said of the song, “Jojo is actually my nickname, I wrote 'Jojo' as a song to myself. Sometimes I feel helpless, frustrated, and completely overwhelmed inside the frames of society. Specifically, I don't know how to navigate inside this parallel universe of the internet and all that comes with it. It's a world that's getting more and more shallow and gives us endless access to everything. Polished images of 'perfect' people living their 'perfect' lives online. I will never look like them, but the thing is that they don't even look like themselves. On the internet we can be whoever we want to be. We can pick apart and choose the best parts of our personality, showcase our best moments, our most flattering images and even manipulate them to look less human. It's a toxic part of social media that pushes people into doing things that ruin them. How do we know what's real? How do we find real love and honest connections when you judge someone based on their internet persona? If money controls everything how can people without it control a change?”
- She continued, “And who am I in the middle of all of this? Just one out of billions of tiny little spots in the universe. I know what you're thinking, but despite its heavy subjects I feel like writing Jojo actually reminded me about what's really important to me. There's so much beauty and light surrounding me, real human connections, breathtaking nature and unconditional love. And in the end I'm made of the same particles as everyone else around me and maybe they feel just as lost as I do sometimes.”
