Kip Winger would like to remix the first Winger album and even maybe the second one

Winger frontman Kip Winger was recently interviewed by Shannon Wilk for Rockin’ Interviews. Kip Winger was promoting Winger‘s upcoming new studio album Seven, which will be released via Frontiers Music Srl on May 5, 2023. Winger have previously released the studio albums Winger (1988), In The Heart of The Young (1990), Pull (1993), IV (2006), Karma (2009) and Better Days Comin’ (2014).

On remixing Winger’s first album, Kip Winger stated (as provided by Rockin’ Interviews): “I want to remix the first album, maybe even the second. But the first album maybe would sound a lot closer to Pull if I mixed it. The third album is when I really learned how to make an album. When we got to Pull, I could finally make the band sound how I always wanted it to.”

On having to prove himself, Kip Winger opined: “On the third album Pull, I didn’t feel like I had anything to prove, but it was a do or die situation. We knew it was over. Everyone just wanted to hate Winger at that time so there was nothing to be able to prove. Certainly I have nothing to prove now, so I don’t think in those terms. People like Alice Cooper and Alan Parsons will tell you what the real deal is about me.”

In terms of misconceptions about himself, Kip Winger indicated: “People glamourize being an artist but it’s full on torture, at least for me it is. The whole identity of Kip Winger is a misconception. Everything about it. Except for those in the know. People think Kip Winger is probably this egomaniac who still believes it’s 1985 and he’s a rockstar. I never settled into feeling confident about any of that, it’s always been how can I make my music better.”
