Originally from South Carolina and now residing in South Africa, the singer-songwriter Ginger Winn unveils her enchanting new track and video titled “Super 8.” To mark this occasion, Winn is set to hold release parties for her single at Early Terrible in Woodstock, NY, and La Menagere in Florence, Italy, on March 23. Attendees can secure their free tickets through RSVP, enjoying complimentary refreshments and snacks at both locations.

“Super 8” emerges as a reflection on the journey of a young woman navigating through her aspirations and the realities of pursuing her dreams. With a backdrop of an acoustic guitar and embellished with lush horns, Winn’s hauntingly beautiful voice guides listeners through a mesmerizing journey filled with love, aspiration, and nostalgia, akin to watching memories unfold on a Super 8 film reel. The song pays homage to the elusive dreams of youth, capturing the essence of longing, love, and the quest for adventure.

The track’s production, led by David Baron—who has worked with artists like The Lumineers, Shania Twain, and Shawn Mendes—was completed at Sun Mountain Studios in Boiceville, NY. It features an opening with a French celesta played by Thelonious Monk and a nod to Louis Armstrong with its captivating horn arrangements. Trumpeter Chris Pasin, known for his work with legends like Buddy Rich and Frank Sinatra, adds a layer of sophistication to the song. The production aims to transport listeners to a whimsical world, ending with a gentle invitation to drift into slumber.

Accompanying the release is a video shot on Super 8 film, edited by Nicholas Paul, which visually narrates Winn’s complex story of fluctuating between dreams and reality. The video, directed by Tina Baione and Ellery Luse Weiss, and shot across Brooklyn, NY, Woodstock, NY, and Tuscany, portrays the intricate and surreal nature of dreams, showcasing Winn in a series of dreamlike scenarios that bridge the gap between the fantastical and the real.
