VAL ASTAIRE RELEASES NEW SINGLE “RUNNER” + LYRIC VIDEO



ART IS AN ALL-ENCOMPASSING EXPERIENCE; ONE THAT UNIQUELY SERVES INDIVIDUAL PURPOSE, WHILE CREATING COMMUNITY. WHEN AN ARTIST PRODUCES, THEY & THEIR MEDIUMS, ARE ABLE TO SHARE A PERSONAL JOURNEY THAT WILL TRANSCEND TO TAKE ON MEANING FOR THOSE WHO ARE CONSUMING. EVERYONE SEEKS AN OUTLET TO FIND SOLACE IN. VAL ASTAIRE IS JUST THAT FOR THE MAN BEHIND THE MONIKER - MUSIC, VISUALS, & AN EVER-WINDING CREATIVE ENDEAVOR.


WITH A DECADE OF MUSICAL PROJECTS & TOURING UNDER THE BELT, IT BECAME EVIDENT THAT VAL ASTAIRE NEEDED TO EXPLORE THE VISION HE HAD HELD WITHIN FOR ENTIRELY TOO LONG. A JOURNEY THROUGH INSPIRATIONS & HONEST THOUGHTS BEGAN TO SHAPE INTO SONIC MUSINGS -  HAND-CRAFTED VISUALS TO ACCOMPANY, SOON FOLLOWING. WITH THE GROUND WORK PAVED, IT CAME TIME TO BUILD THE NEXT PIECES WITH A CAREFULLY CURATED TEAM OF FELLOW CREATIVES.







EVERYONE YEARNS FOR THEIR OWN 80’S INSPIRED MOMENT IN LIFE, AND VAL ASTAIRE IS PROVIDING THE SOUNDTRACK TO THAT WITH HIS NEWEST SINGLE “RUNNER.” THE SONG IMMEDIATELY GRABS YOUR ATTENTION WITH THE OPENING SYNTH TONES FOR A WILD RIDE ABOUT THE GIVE & TAKE WITHIN RELATIONSHIPS.


TO ACCOMPANY “RUNNER” IS A CINEMATIC LYRIC VIDEO CAPTURING THE ESSENCE OF THE SONG AND FORTHCOMING ALBUM, FEVER DREAMS. THE VIDEO FOOTAGE TAKES VIEWERS ON A TIME LAPSED DRIVE THROUGHOUT LOS ANGELES; MATCHING THE EMOTIONAL TRAVEL OF THE SONG ITSELF. THE VIDEO CLOSES OUT IN THE SAME PARKING GARAGE WHICH THE ALBUM ARTWORK FOR ‘FEVER DREAMS’ WAS SHOT. “RUNNER” WILL BE THE FINAL SINGLE TO PREFACE THE LP - WITH THE SONG AND VIDEO GEARING UP THE AUDIENCE FOR THE FULL AUDITORY & VISUAL EXPERIENCE THAT IS SOON TO COME.


RUNNER” + THE LYRIC VIDEO RELEASE MARK THE CLOSING OF VAL ASTAIRE’S SINGULAR STORIES & USHERS IN THE COMPREHENSIVE STORY ENCAPSULATED WITHIN ‘FEVER DREAMS.’ VAL ASTAIRE IS HERE TO WELCOME EVERYONE INTO THE WORLD WITHIN THE ARTWORK HE IS CREATING & ENCOURAGING EVERYONE TO EXPLORE THEIR OWN RELATIONS & REACTIONS TO THE CREATIVE WORLD AT HAND.


“”RUNNER,” MAN. IT’S THE HEARTBREAK SONG ON A SUMMER NIGHT DRIVE, WITH THE WINDOWS DOWN KINDA VIBE. IT SETS THE MOOD FOR THE ALBUM & PURPOSEFULLY SO. IT WAS ALWAYS INTENDED AS TRACK ONE & SONICALLY SETS THE PRECEDENT OF WHAT TO EXPECT. OPENING WITH MASSIVE SYNTH LINES & CUTTING SNARE, ONLY TO IMMEDIATELY BE DYNAMICALLY CHALLENGED WITH SOFT & PRECARIOUSLY THIN VOCALS, & THEN LIFT BACK FOR THE CHORUS - IT’S ‘LATHER, RINSE, REPEAT’ - JUST THE WAY WE WANTED IT.”
