Jessie and the Toy Boys have just premiered a new video for unreleased track “Runaway.” The track comes in just in time for Valentine’s Day and in celebration of the U.S 9th Circuit Court ruling Prop 8 unconstitutional in California earlier this month. I absolutely love the video and the carefree feel of the uplifting pop track. Nothing better than a good pop song with a strong statement. Much love Jessie! Be sure to check it out. Enjoy!
“I was overjoyed to learn that Proposition 8 was recently over turned in my home state of California. It’s a step in the right direction, however for a country that teaches it’s children to place their right hand over their hearts and pledge ‘Liberty and justice for all’ we still have a long way to go towards actually making that a reality. When I wrote ‘Runaway’ with DJ Skeet Skeet, we wrote it from the perspective of our 13 year old selves, who felt pressure from our parents and society to be something that we were not. The song is ultimately about breaking free and following your heart. I wanted to make a music video that told a similar story in relation to gay marriage. I was honored to have the beautiful and brave Mollie Thomas star in my video, and I hope that together we are able to bring about more awareness to an issue that is near and dear to both of our hearts and spread a message of equality. Happy Valentine’s Day, everyone deserves love. – xo Jessie“
