Goo Goo Dolls today launched a new video for “Lost” which you can view HERE. “The song reminds me that we all make mistakes and lose the plot of our own stories sometimes” explains singer John Rzeznik. “We get distracted with the cheap, shiny, sights and sounds of a world in disarray but ultimately, we find where we need to be if we keep our eyes open for what really matters.”
The video’s director Joelle Grace Taylor said “When I was asked to shoot the video for “Lost” I wanted to film it from the perspective of one single character, Madolyn. To me, the song is about learning to trust yourself and embracing parts of you that may have been missing. I drew inspiration from my own past as well as the star of the video, Madolyn Ropell. The lyrics really hit close to home with past experiences of broken relationships, whether it be romantic / family / friends. By following Madolyn on her journey of self-discovery, I wanted to show that it isn’t easy to let yourself get lost but it’s worth it when you gain total freedom to find yourself. I hope viewers will connect with the character in the video and be inspired to live a life unafraid. It’s not easy to change and grow; you will cry, you will laugh, you will doubt yourself and love yourself and it’ll all be worth it.”
The track is taken from their 12th studio album “Miracle Pill” and was described as “Potentially the biggest Dolls album released to date” by Planet Rock while Classic Rock thought that “Goo Goo Dolls are having an Indian Summer. Good work indeed.” Pop Matters went even further to say “While their contemporaries are usually satisfied with touring their hits and avoiding new music, Rzeznik and Takac continue to push the envelope, evolve their sound and release vital new music –Miracle Pill, is easily a high-water mark of the band’s career.”
The band are about to embark on a UK tour kicking off in Glasgow on February 19th and includes a show at London’s Roundhouse on February 27th. Rzeznik said “I love playing the UK, the audiences are amazing. We always have a blast so it’s a real pleasure to be coming back”
