ALEX WINSTON
RELEASES  COVER OF JOE EXOTIC "TIGER KING" SONG "I SAW A TIGER"

INDIE SINGER-SONGWRITER REINVENTS TWO TRACKS FROM THE WORLD-TRENDING NETFLIX SERIES WITH NEW POP FLAVOR

 It's the #1 trending show on Netflix, "Tiger King: Murder, Mayhem and Madness," the bizarre cat breeding expo turned true crime drama that everyone's talking about. Last week, indie pop artist Alex Winston dropped a surprise cover of the infamous "Here Kitty, Kitty" song by the documentary's protagonist Joe Exotic, and today she unveils a folk-tinged edition of "I Saw A Tiger." Both tracks are now available on all streaming platforms.

"I Saw A Tiger" was created by Winston during quarantine and she has pledged that "proceeds from this song will be donated to Best Friends Society (https://nkla.org/) to help the animal shelters in Los Angeles that are struggling to keep their doors open right now. An additional donation from her track "Here Kitty, Kitty" will be made to MusiCares and their Covid-19 relief fund for artists."

The Los Angeles based singer-songwriter has been on personal lockdown in her home, like many others right now, and as the popular show made its way onto her TV screen, an inspiration was born. "I think it was the perfect storm of being in my house alone for three weeks and the utter batshit craziness of "Tiger King" that somehow found me reimagining Joe Exotic songs in my underwear at 2pm on a Tuesday."

"Winston gives a sensual, Lana Del Rey-esque veneer to the song about the mystery surrounding Exotic's nemesis, Big Cat Rescue matriarch Carole Baskin. With gently strummed acoustic guitar and Winston's intimate, velvety voice, the ballad of murder and mayhem is transformed into a pop tiger trap." - Billboard
 
"[Winston] rejects the ice-cream gloss and ambiguity of many other
contemporary pop artists" - Pitchfork
 
"Alex Winston makes the kind of big, meticulously crafted pop songs that sound anthemic without coming across as soulless" - Stereogum
 
"...you should never, ever under any circumstances fuck with Alex Winston." - VICE

The slow-burning pop melodies could not come at a more needed time. While everyone is stuck scouring the internet, waiting for the next piece of the "Tiger King" story to unfold, hearing  these two new versions offers a supremely dreamlike adventure that will calm the soul in crazy times. In classic Alex Winston style, one that's long been admired from folks at Pitchfork, Billboard, Noisey and more, she creates a world all her own, one that's likely to get her the new title 'Tiger Queen.' Billboard even claims that "Alex Winston will tame your heart."
