New Video Released For Lil Peep's Runaway

Thursday, 01 November 2018 Written by Huw Baines

A new video has been released for Lil Peep’s Runaway.

The track is set to feature on the posthumous album ‘Come Over When You’re Sober, Pt. 2’, which is out on November 9. The video splices archival footage with artwork created by the late rapper, who died last year aged 21.

The clip was created by his mother, Liza Womack, in tandem with co-director Steven Mertens. Womack said:

I'm so proud to have been given the opportunity to collaborate with Steven Mertens on the video for Runaway. It has allowed me to make something beautiful for my son -- in his honor.  Early in the process, many of us agreed that Runaway would be a great song to release as a single for COWYS 2. It is a powerful song that tells the story of how Gus--aka Lil Peep--had decided to leave his apartment in LA, but he didn't want to come home to live in Long Beach, either.  So, he had gone to stay in London. That was a productive and happy time for him--working with friends like Smokeasac and ILoveMakonnen.

This video tells that part of Gus's story.  The story is told using many of Gus's drawings, from different periods of his life.  After transforming into the wonderful "flaming-haired" character that Gus drew, himself, he flies away from LAX to London--to make music with some of his best friends.

I know you will enjoy watching it.  You will see different things each time you watch.  His drawings. His tattoos. His friends. The house where he really lived.  And his dog, Taz, the "legend."
