Diana Gordon is setting waves in motion with the visual release of new single “Woman.”
Formerly known as Wynter Gordon, the young prodigy made a name for herself in the industry as a songwriter.
Gordon released her debut album “With The Music I Die” in 2011. With her switching to her birth-given name for a stage name, it shows Diana is raw and true.
Today she returns with an empowering visual which makes a bold statement.
“Woman” is in all black & white and conceptually looks like it’s straight out of the 80’s. Only a timeless artist can pull this off and that’s what Diana is to me, an artist serious about her craft and message.
In a time where women are taking a stand more than ever for their rights, acceptance and equality, “Woman” serves as a fitting anthem to rock too.
The track is filled with heavy hitting bars to make any woman feel proud and empowered:
“That woman, she from Venus, don’t play around, baby she a genius”
“God gave you the answer when he gave you the woman, I know you the man but don’t forget where you come from.”
Diana writes of creating the video, “We shot this video on a cold day in November. 5 pregnant women on the cusp of giving birth and hungry, everyone having to pee at the same time. It was also one of the calmest days I’ve ever experienced. We all wanted to capture the incredible beauty of this ancient magic called ‘creation of life.’ I also wanted to give them classic beautiful images to show their children when they were older.
This song, that is rock & roll reincarnated, that celebrates your mother, my mother, your sister, and my sister is just my way to stand up for the woman next to me and all those unseen. We need each other and the world really needs us now.”
