We had the pleasure of interviewing Valerie Broussard over Zoom video! 

Platinum-certified singer, songwriter and powerhouse vocalist Valerie Broussard has today released the official music video for her single “Iris,” a breathtaking rendition of the Goo Goo Dolls classic.

Inspired by a favorite lyric from the song, the video finds Valerie floating through the galaxy alone gazing down at the world below her.

“The Goo Goo Dolls music video for ‘Iris’ is the first I ever truly fell in love with,” Valerie shared. “When making my own video, I wanted to give an homage to theirs. In the original, Johnny is locked away in a tower, looking down upon the city below with various telescopes. I always felt like the concept made the lyrics, especially the line ‘and I don’t want the world to see me,’ hit home. In my video, I used the same idea, only I’m looking down on the world from a space station.”

“Iris” is the first official single off Valerie’s forthcoming debut EP Voyager due out this fall. It also marks the second time she’s crossed paths with The Goo Goo Dolls after singing on “Money, Fame & Fortune” off their latest album Miracle Pill.

Stay tuned for more news from Valerie soon.
