Winter Announces New Album ‘What Kind of Blue Are You?’, Enlists Hatchie for New Single ‘atonement’

Winter, the moniker of Samira Winter, has announced her new album, What Kind of Blue Are You?, which comes out on October 14 via Bar/None Records. Today’s announcement comes with the release of the new single ‘atonement’, featuring Hatchie’s Harriette Pilbeam and Joe Agius. Check out a visual for it below.

“Every time I hear this song a new version of the story plays out in my head – an escape, a mystery, a forbidden love,” Winter explained in a statement. “By the time it reaches full climax there is a big reveal – the secret is out, the we discover who committed the crime, the two lovers find each other.”

Pilbeam said the song “really wrote itself and was a lot of fun to make.” Agius added, “The concept for the video immediately came to mind when working on the song together. The dark and talkative verses contrasting with the bubbly hopeful choruses really conveyed the kinda energy I wanted to translate.”

In addition to Hatchie, What Kind of Blue Are You? also features a guest appearance from SASAMI. “I feel like I’ve come full circle, making an album that my 22-year-old self who just started Winter would love,” Winter commented. “It’s my inner shadow girl, revealing herself in all her brokenness, despair and beauty.”
