Viral Pop Star Havanna Winter Releases Intoxicating New Single “Death Wish”
Burgeoning viral modern pop star Havanna Winter has released her latest single “Death Wish” which was produced by David Arkwright (Bella Poarch, NCT DREAM, Illenium) and written by Maya K, Havanna Winter, Anette Winter, and David Arkwright.
Havanna says, “Deathwish is about love and how romance is unpredictable and a bit of a double edged sword if you will. Sometimes it’s a blessing and other times a lesson, but you never know in advance, and you have no choice but to gamble, even with your heart at stake, because if you don’t, you might miss out on the most incredible part of life and something true, real, and meaningful.
“The inspiration behind it came from one of my favorite movies: Baz Luhrmann’s ‘Romeo and Juliet.’ I am so obsessed with the theme of the movie, with a mix of Shakespearean and the Roman Catholic, modern-fashion-pop-culture, being the most beautiful, yet most tragic love story of all time.”

Havanna was born in Oslo, Norway, but spent her childhood summers in Spain. With Spanish summers and Viking winters running through her veins, she made the transatlantic move to Los Angeles, California at the age of 9.
With a promising music career on the horizon, Havanna has signed with Stevie Van Zandt’s new imprint Wonderwall Records.

She has an album to come this year all guided by Executive Producer Maya K (Bebe Rexha, Anita, J Balvin).
“I am very excited to work with such a talented artist like Havanna. It’s really inspiring to be able to work with an artist who has such a clear vision of who she is and what she wants.” – Maya K
Inspired by filmmakers Quentin Tarantino, Robert Rodriguez, and Tim Burton, as well as films like “The Lost Boys” “Pulp Fiction” and “Dazed and Confused” Havanna’s musical vision is to creatively deliver a cinematic experience and sound with every song release. Cultivating elements of her retro interests has allowed Havanna to bring new life to them in the digital world.
“I was missing some of the magical moments in old school, retro movies. As I began to create music and visuals to accompany it, I thought it would be a good opportunity to try to sneak some of it back in!” – Havanna Winter
“Dreamy pop track…on par with contemporaries Lana del Rey and Bella Poarch.”- Blood Makes Noise
“I’m in awe of Havanna Winter, this lady is the definition of talent. The versatility in her style and the range of her voice is mind blowing. She doesn’t shy away from breaking out of the mundane pop formula to try something new; she embraces so many genres and flawlessly pieces them together to create music that is exceptional. I can’t wait for an album as I know it’s going to be a roller coaster of sounds where you’re never quite sure what’s coming next.” – Click, Roll, Boom
