It has been about a year since we’ve heard anything from the X Ambassadors and we are thrilled that the wait is over. Their newest released single, “Renegades,” already got picked up by a Jeep commercial that was release in March. This smooth and melodious song comes off the album VHS – on pre-order status on iTunes now. The LP will be released June 23rd but in the meantime, we can enjoy the video for this most recent track.
The video – and the music – echoes the feeling behind the words. To be a renegade – to be the one that opposes the status quo or to be the one that betrays the norm – is a lonely place to be. It’s a worthy cause: to be different, and it’s one that needs to be celebrated. This video very clearly addresses the solitude of being a renegade at the same time that the vocals and melodies motivates you to do so.
