Fun. is just about ready to release their ‘Carry On’ music video and during a chat with MTV, Andrew Dost revealed that the clip will tell their story from the start up until now.
He said, “with the first two videos we did for this album, ‘We Are Young’ and ‘Some Nights’ — there’s a lot of explosions and gunshots, it’s very cinematic.”
“The idea is for the story to be the truth — playing a show, hanging out, getting dinner with friends. It’s more of the reality of what we’re going through these days,” frontman Nate Ruess told MTV News. Guitarist Jack Antonoff added, “This video is a harsher look of the realities of what it’s like to be fun — not in a sad way, but in a very honest way.”
As you can see from the preview below, the video was filmed in the Big Apple and Ruess reinforced the fact that “everywhere is a beautiful backdrop in New York City.” Ruess added, “It’s gonna be cool to explore Grand Central Station shut down. It’s about us coming home from tour … we’ve had virtually no days off in the past five months, and this is one of our few days off in this is what we’re doing.”
‘Carry On’ was directed by visual mastermind Anthony Mandler and he also had a few words to say about the clip revealing, “This video is like watching a train come unrailed in a good way. The last video ['Some Nights'] was about two people meeting their destiny.”
