Speaking about the video for her new track, she said, “Runaway is the first solo track I’ve put out, so it’s really special to me. I’m really happy that I got to make the video for it back in Berlin with all my friends. We had so much fun (as you can tell!), and it felt so good to get back to some kind of normality after lockdown! That’s what the song’s about really, so felt it was important to replicate that in the video…”
