The day after Raury announced his upcoming debut studio album he shares the first single off the project with an accompanying video. The track, featuring Tommy Marrello, is called “Friends.” In the Duncan Winecoff-directed video, Raury opts out of a flight and decides to take it to Twitter to digitally hitchhike from ATL to Chicago.
“I’ve realized a lot in my 19-years of existence. Most importantly, I’ve found out that I’m a bit naive. Someday I do believe the human race will let go of all the very unimportant things that separate us from the bigger goal,” he says of “Friends.” “Everything you see in the video happened in real life. It was a special experience to have friends I talk to on Twitter be down to pick me up and ride with me to Chicago. I made more friends because of the video. Family and friends are a privilege to have and I don’t take them for granted. ”
