Beth Ditto’s Video For “We Could Run” Sees Tween Tomboys Making Mischief Together

"We could always play it safe/But that's no fun"

Beth Ditto’s new single, “We Could Run,” is like a more soulful version of Tiffany’s “I Think We’re Alone Now,” but with the same “let’s get outta here!” sentiment.

Directed by Matt Staubach, the song’s music video follows two young girls as they kick off their skirts, strap on some boots, and break into a house to enjoy an adult-free hijinks before being caught by the cops.


Fans of Aerosmith’s “Crazy” video will enjoy the nod to Liv Tyler and Alice Silverstone’s antics.

But Ditto isn’t absent from the video: The girls’ adventures are juxtaposed with shots of her on train tracks wearing a a glamorous black gown.

“Working with these two girls was so much fun!” the out rocker posted on Facebook.

Ditto—whose solo debut album, Fake Sugar, is out now—also just released a new semi-animated video, The World According to Beth Ditto, in which she shares her love of holidays, her cats (Butters and Tofu), and the lesbian obsession with astrology.

A girl after our own heart.
