NASHVILLE, TN – Aug. 03, 2018 – PLATINUM selling breakthrough band LANCO define their “surging anthem” (Rolling Stone) and climbing Top 25 single “Born to Love You” with the release of its music video today across all digital platforms. The “charging Country-rockers” (Tampa Bay Times)collaborated alongside director Ramon White to blend its pulsating rhythm with a revolving canvas to echo the heartfelt storyline. Dubbed by critics as one of the most “infectious” tracks off their No. One selling debut album HALLELUJAH NIGHTS, “Born to Love You” now boasts more than 59 million digital streams in the U.S. alone and showcases “a quintet at the top of their game,” (Pitchfork).
“As we continue to travel the world as a band we’ve been given a glimpse into how many people, places and cultures there are,” said lead singer and co-writer Brandon Lancaster. “With that in mind we wanted a music video that emphasized the idea in this song of just how amazing it is that out of all those places and people, two people can come together and find love.”
