Dan Patlansky is premiering the video for his track Run with TeamRock.

The song is taken from Patlansky’s upcoming seventh album Introvertigo, which is released on May 6. Run features on the cover mount CD in the current issue of Classic Rock magazine, out now in print, digital and via TeamRock+.

South African bluesman Patlansky previously explained the album’s title. He said: “I’m an introvert. When an introvert spends more than five minutes with an extrovert, the introvert gets a kind of dizzy feeling because of the energy the extrovert is drawing from you.

“I experience that all the time. Even though the songs are about different things, it all comes from the mind and the force of an introvert.”

He describes Run as “a song about running away from mob mentality. The fact is, when people gather in large numbers, their IQs tend to drop. They say and do stupid things.”

Patlansky supports King King on their upcoming UK tour and also plays a number of headline shows.
