Model and seasoned songwriter Wynter Gordon isn’t new on the scene — we covered her a few years ago — but she’s managed to keep a pretty low profile considering the fact that she’s worked with everyone from Mary J. Blige to Jennifer Lopez and David Guetta. Today the Queens native is back with a new single, “Bleeding Out,” off of her forthcoming solo EP, Five Needle. As the title suggests, this isn’t your feel-good summer jam about day-drinking and sex. It’s a heartfelt reverie about love and loss anchored by Gordon’s haunting vocals and Benny Cassette’s (Kanye West, Sky Ferreira) minimalist approach to the pop ballad. Stream “Bleeding Out” here as an exclusive Vulture premiere. Five Needle is out June 2 on Harvest Records.
