Goo Goo Dolls have released a music video for “You Are The Answer” from their new album, Chaos in Bloom.
The video, directed by Keenan O’Reilly, focuses on domestic violence and also highlights the Joe Torre Safe At Home Foundation, a non-profit founded by Ali & Joe Torre. The organization is focused on ending domestic violence by assisting children in their safety and well-being.
“The song is just about being true to yourself and trying to have faith in yourself and go where the love is,” rrontman John Rzeznik told People. “I’ve been trying to do that for a while because somebody a long time ago said to me, ‘Just don’t deal with people that are bad for you. Just go where the love is.’ That’s one of the themes that seems to crop up in a lot of the music that I write.”
In the video, a woman is shown putting on makeup to hide bruises from domestic violence. It is revealed that the woman grew up in a household, where her violent father would abuse both her and her mother. Her mother was too afraid to break that relationship. The music video ends with the woman consoling her younger self before escaping her home.
