Winnie Raeder shares the video for ‘I Wear A Ghost’, her 2nd single (rel. via AE Records).
This was the last ever, recorded session at the prestigious State of the Ark Studios, Richmond, London. Home to the recording of seminal records from the likes of Tina Turner, Mumford and Sons, Stereophonics, Regina Spektor and Jake Bugg. The video was directed by Adam Pitts and engineered by Martin Hannah and features Jacob Attwooll on keys, Matt Zara on guitar.
Winnie quotes “You have baggage from previous times in your life that will manifest today, in the present, because where you have been in your life makes you. It shapes you.”
As the title suggests, it explores the idea that we all pick up scars in our lives that we often take into future human relationships. The optimistic power of this song is that love and connection enable that emotional weight to be shared.
Co-written with Sam Romans, Winnie recalls that ‘`I Wear A Ghost’ was a title that she had in her mind for some time.
