Runaway June have shared the sweetly nostalgic video for their current Top 40 single “We Were Rich,” out now. The video, reflecting simpler times, was directed by Patrick Tracy (Halsey, Day + Shay, and more) and premiered on CMT and CMT Music earlier this week.
Natalie Stovall says, “The first time I saw our music video I just started sobbing like a baby! I didn’t expect to get so emotional! It opens on the house I grew up in, features my parents and sweeps through intensely nostalgic moments, people, & places from my childhood and hometown,” Natalie continues. “I couldn’t think of a more perfect visual love letter to the town that made me who I am! And the fact that this is my first music video with Runaway June just makes it even more special.”
“”We Were Rich” is probably our favourite song on the record and it’s been a long time coming, this one being a single,” says Naomi Cooke. “We are so excited to finally be able to say that. It is a song about your childhood or your adolescence. It’s nostalgia reminiscing about back before you knew anything was wrong in the world, back before when you thought you had it all.”
