Puma June Releases New Song “Ride or Die”
Toronto-based singer-songwriter Shanti Abbott, aka Puma June released a new song “Ride or Die” along with a music video on June 9, 2023.
The song is the follow-up to “Glass Curtain”, which was released back in April.
The track was written by Puma June. Produced by Jojo Worthington and Greg Markov.
She recorded “Ride or Die”, previous songs “Holy” and “Glass Curtain” at Hotel2Tango in Montreal last summer.
The accompanying music video was directed by Nathan Hughes-Berry.
Puma June said of the song, “This song was inspired by my relationship with my twin sister Vale. As all close relationships do, ours has gone through many ups and downs. She has made me laugh until I cry and cry until I laugh, but in the end, no matter what, I know she will always have my back and I will always have hers.”
- She continued, “I remember sitting at my piano and singing the horn lines out into my voice notes. I had never written anything so upbeat before, and I wanted this song to be lighthearted and funky, despite having serious moments lyrically. The music video concept was to celebrate that child-like light-heartedness and to just have fun, while channeling some David Lynch-esque bizarreness. I wanted to show a different side of Puma June.”
She added, “It’s a beautiful thing to have a person in your life who you know will remain by your side, through thick and thin, forever. For me, that’s my sister. I want you to dance to this song all summer long with your friends and family, celebrating those special relationships.”
