INXS member Andrew Farriss is back with a new video for “Run Baby Run’’, which you can watch exclusively via Aesthetic Magazine below.
Farriss, the songwriter behind INXS’ legendary songs is giving fans another look at his forthcoming self-titled solo album and first country-influenced endeavor. The music video was produced by Andrew and Marlina Farriss at Rockingham Holdings and it was directed by Duncan Toombs at The Filmery.
’Run Baby Run’’ was co-written with Bruce Wallace and Phil Barton, and serves as a big song with a vivid story, effortlessly weaving an old-time reverie with an outlaw country sentiment. In the writing session, the concept of movers and shakers was a phrase that really stuck with Farriss.
“I had this idea that there are people who are happy to fly under the radar, and there are some people who want to be the movers and sharkers in the world,” said Farriss. “If you are going to be a mover and shaker, you have to run baby run. I knew those two phrases I had to have in a song. Singing a song for the lost and disillusioned in the world, I think there are a lot – people need to feel like they have a purpose. Why are we here? We have to have a good code to live by and that is what the song is all about.”
It will be a surprise to no one that Farriss is considered to be a national treasure in Australia. Throughout INXS’ career, he has delivered groundbreaking, quality songs that have been played countless time since their release. In January 2020, he was awarded the Member of the Order of Australia, a well-deserved testament to his significance for his home country. INXS were also the recipient of multiple ARIA awards and were inducted into the ARIA Hall of Fame. Around the world, the band was nominated for a JUNO and multiple Grammys.
INXS also won multiple MTV Video Music Awards and Brit Awards. With a career spanning 30 years, they have sold over 50 million albums worldwide, including a Diamond selling status in Canada. Outside of INXS, he is an Australian Songwriter’s Hall of Fame inductee and has written and produced songs for a plethora of Australian and international artists. It is no wonder how Farriss has amassed around 250 songs over the years. A selected few will be enjoyed by audiences everywhere on Farriss’ self-titled first solo album to be released on March 19th.
