Billboard Gets a Rush on Gin Wigmore’s New Video

New Zealand singer-songwriter Gin Wigmore, 28, is preparing for the release of her third studio album Blood to Bone with the “intense and uninhibited” video, “New Rush,” Billboard reports.

“[With the video] Wigmore is giving her fans a taste of what’s to come on the release. Her signature pop sound gets a slightly grittier edge on the new track, matched by the video’s unrelenting action. It’s about the thrill of the chase in the clip – but not in a sweet, romantic way. Wigmore is being hunted, and the arrows she’s evading definitely aren’t Cupid’s.”

Wigmore’s previous two albums combined to go platinum over eight times in New Zealand.

Blood to Bone is scheduled for release by Island Records on 30 June 2015.
