Teaming up with record label Astralwerks, producers Robbie Chater and Tony Di Blasi of The Avalanches release new visuals to Running Red Lights. Featured on this track is Pink Siifu incanting lyrics and the unmistakable voice of Weezer front man Rivers Cuomo, Cuomo sounds as though he’s speeding along a cosmic highway, while synths, harps and tambourines swell, sparkle and cascade all around. Robbie says:

Running Red Lights didn’t start out as a defining moment; "a single" as it were. But Rivers responded to our fuzzed-out Spacemen 3 inspired jam with such open heartedness, that we soon dropped all pretense and got down to the heart of the matter… loss...He captures that feeling that comes on the other side of the abyss, when you have lost everything and so then, there is nothing more to lose.

Directed by Emmy nominee Greg Brunkalla, America Got Talent's Erik Cavanaugh dances through the streets of Hollywood in his high heels, high on a message of hope from a storefront psychic. Following a shattering revelation, he glimpses Angelyne, the original Hollywood billboard queen, and her trademark pink Corvette, and his fortunes change once again. If your feeling in a single-minded mood and emotionally running red lights to reach your lover watch the official video below. Also get your copy of the single here.
