Winona Oak Shares New Song “With Myself”
- Back in January, Swedish singer-songwriter Winona Oak released her debut EP “CLOSURE”.
After the release of the EP, she joined in Dutch DJ R3HAB's “Thinking About You” in July.
But she released her first single “With Myself” following the EP on September 1, 2020. It was written by Sly, Max Wolfgang and Winona Oak.
The accompanying music video was directed by Julian Gillström.
“The music video was recorded before the pandemic took over the world so looking back at it now is like looking back at a totally different universe. Back then we were able to share champagne glasses, hug each other and talk all night long at some cozy bar under a cold and crystal clear New York sky,” Winona Oak shared on social media. “Leading up to the release of this song I've been thinking a lot about how scarily easy it is to lose yourself in order to please somebody else. And trust me when I say that I've been there. There's so many double standards in today's society. Women are constantly shamed for showcasing our healthy desire to be sexual. And we are seen as “bossy” and less likable for being successful compared to our male colleagues. When me, @sly and @maxwolfganguk wrote this song we wanted to take all these things and play around with the concept of a “bossy” bad ass woman counting her money, buying her own gifts, enjoying the space in her bed and making love to no one but herself.”
She continued, “I want women of all ages, all around the world to feel comfortable in their own beautiful bodies, and to stop putting somebody else's needs and opinions in front of their own. YOU are in charge of YOUR body and YOUR sexuality - and that's a beautiful thing so I want you to own it. It's about time that we make more love with ourselves. ”
