The reigning queen of hard rock Lita Ford has teamed up with USA Today for an exclusive premiere of the new video for her single Mother. The song comes from Ford’s latest solo album Living Like A Runaway, released last summer on Steamhammer/SPV.
Ford commented on the video and the song Mother, “Mother is my song to my beautiful sons. I know they will see the truth one day. They will always have a place in my heart, which bleeds for them through this song.” The video was directed by former Runaway Victory Tischler-Blue and can be seen below.
Lita Ford teamed up with producer Gary Hoey and lyricist Michael Dan Ehmig to work on Living Like A Runaway. Together the team invested a lot of time and effort into this project, “We worked on the lyrics intensively to really give the songs a lot of meaning and that special emotional depth. I think that these are some of the best lyrics ever, period.” Ford is referring to numbers such as “Devil In My Head”, “Hate”, and “The Asylum” which see her bare her soul in a way which she has never done before.
