Platinum-selling alternative rock band AWOLNATION has released “Run (Beautiful Things)” along with an accompanying video for the track.
On his reason to create an alternate version of “Run” AWOLNATION’s Aaron Bruno says, “I think that everyone can relate to negative feelings and that realization of the dark side to humanity, which unfortunately we see too much of around us at times. But then there’s the other side we find in beauty, positivity and love that is ultimately more powerful. I started to change the lyric during our live shows and it was natural to want to record this new version of the song.”
“Run” is the title track off the LA band’s sophomore album, which features the No. 1 hit “Hollow Moon (Bad Wolf)” as well as Top 5 hits “I Am” and “Woman Woman.” The original version of “Run” has become a viral sensation amongst vine community members, spawning over 250 million vine ‘loops’ so far, and Rolling Stone declared “the dystopian, orchestral ‘Run’ is one of AWOLNATIONS’s most cinematic and epic songs.” For a limited time fans can receive a free download of “Run (Beautiful Things)” via http://awolnationmusic.com/home/
