“Run2Me” is a single off of the Smashing Pumpkins’ most recent album Monuments To An Elegy, which was released almost a year ago. The band just debuted a hyper-stylized video for the song, directed by Billy Corgan’s longtime collaborator Linda Strawberry. She told Vulture that “Run2Me” reminded her of the tarot card “The Magician,” and she based her visual interpretation of the song on that comparison:
The Magician is symbolic of transition and inspiration, while the protagonist in the video is afraid of who she is about to become, she learns, accepts and then lets go of whatever was holding her back.
