Kip Winger Discusses New "From the Moon to the Sun" Songs

Kip Winger posted his comments about the songs included on his forthcoming studio album "From the Moon to the Sun," due out later this year on Frontiers Records. Here are his insights:

Every Story Told:
This song was mostly recorded in Istanbul at Cenk Eroglu's studio. I got the idea from a yoga instructor of mine who once made the comment "Even though you cant do everything, you can be everything".

Nothing:
This song was originally "Killing Way" as you can hear on the Xcarnation Cd "Grounded". We changed it early on but kept the other version intact. Also mostly recorded in Istanbul. It's about the Hypocrisy I see all around me. More and more there seems to be less and less to believe in. So much deception in the world but still holding on.

Touch The Ground:
Written and recorded in Nashville. The piano part came to me late one night while working on another song. A captured moment of relationship.

Pages and Pages:
Written and recorded in Nashville. Inspired by all the denied inner voices in all of us And how life can sweep you away until there's nothing left of you.

Ghosts:
For String Quintet, Piano, Harp. Written in Nashville. Recorded in Austin TX. 1st movement of a 3 movement piece for Ballet.

In Your Eyes Another Life:
Another on recorded in Istanbul. About a past life memory of my wife Paula, and how I've searched for her through many lifetimes.

Runaway:
Writing in Santa Fe and New York. It's a song about the life of girl I know and how she's unable to find the love she's looking for.

California:
Ken and I wrote this in Nashville. It's about a friend of his who's found herself on the edge of reality with no way out of her mind.

What We Are:
Written in Nashville. Production tribute to the Beatles. You are what you talk about, we all can make a difference.

One Big Game:
Written in Santa Fe. Life is an illusion to say the least…

Why:
Recorded in Istanbul: forgiveness as something we may never understand, we forgive because it's what heals us.

Reason To Believe:
Recorded in Istanbul. You may know this track from the Xcarnation record. This version has a few different tracks.

You can listen to three songs from the album on MySpace. In the meantime, there's also an interview with Kip Winger on alloutguitar.com.

We tend to err on the side of inclusiveness when it comes to borderline music (although you likely won't see full-blown coverage of certain bands like Winger or Def Leppard here). For the older metalheads here, many may have listened to the hair metal, just like a lot of people listened to nu-metal. They aren't they heaviest forms of metal, but a lot of it is/was relevant and it's a very blurry line to create a cutoff. Ok, Winger could go on the non-metal side :-) But what about Crue? Ratt, Slaughter, Whitesnake, AC/DC? Before you answer, a lot of people argue and really believe that Black Sabbath are not metal. Black Sabbath DEFINED metal. Just because these bands do not sound like metal in today's sense doesn't mean they have no relevance. That's not to say they are all metal, but that fits them into my inclusive view of what we cover here. And I'm sure we have plenty of older readers who appreciate it.

Winger was a good band, for their time. Their guitar player, Reb Beach, was and still is a phenomenal musician.

Now Listening to: Quicksand Jesus-Skid Row

I read somewhere that all the guys in winger had degrees in music form some highly repected school of music back East. One could not assertain that from their "hit" she's only 17. With Dream Theater it is obvious, but not winger. I would have to side with deathbringer in stating that winger is not metal, and while I am in such an agreeable mood I will also agree with PHukedwithaknife. deathbringer is a class act.
