ROLLING STONE PREMIERES NEW MUSIC VIDEO BY HURRAY FOR THE RIFF RAFF

Electric Lady Artist Management: This week Rolling Stone premiered a new music video for “Living in the City,” a song from Hurray for the Riff Raff’s new album ‘The Navigator.’

From Rolling Stone:

“Hurray for the Riff Raff’s sixth studio album, The Navigator, almost exists beyond the need for videos. Telling the story of Navita, a young woman growing up in a world that undervalues all that makes her unique, it comprises 12 evocative tales that examine indemnity, politics and survival in myopic times, as imagined by Alynda Segarra. One such song is “Living in the City,” about survival and salvation beneath the skyscrapers, the video for which debuted today. Like many of the tracks on The Navigator, it’s a seamless blend between acoustic, socially conscious folk and percussive rock and roll.”
