FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE - July 14, 2017 - In an unprecedented partnershipValerie June and Viacom channels CMT Music, BET Centric, BET Soul, MTV Live and MTVU have teamed to debut the music video for "Got Soul," the latest single from June's critically acclaimed album, The Order of Time.  The video launches with multiple airings across the platforms today. (MTV Live and MTVU begin airing the video on Monday, July 17). Watch it HERE. 

Rolling Stone included The Order of Time on their recent '50 Best Albums of 2017 So Far' list and proclaimed the album is "near-perfect from front to back." NPR called the album "a marvel of mindfulness," The Guardian raved, "bursting with standouts," and MOJO declared the album "beautiful and tempting."

The "Got Soul" music video, directed by noted New York photographer Jacob Blickenstaff beautifully captures June performing in a variety of settings interspersed with childhood photos showcasing the rising star's sparkling energy and openhearted nature. The video also incorporates vintage footage captured by Mary Burns from June's first ever live solo performance in Memphis, TN. "The 'Got Soul' video is my journey through genre and song. While making this video I was able to find a way to blend my past with the present," shares June. 
The first time ever collaboration highlights Viacom's open ability to support a genre-bending, dynamic artist like Valerie June.
After an extensive European tour this summer, Valerie June returns to the U.S. for a run of dates this fall, beginning August 3rd with a special free show at the Santa Monica Pier in Los Angeles.  Commenting on June's beguiling live show, CMT asserted, "watching her songs come to life onstage is like watching Dolly Parton, Sister Rosetta Tharpe and David Bowie perform together through one woman." Full list of tour dates below.
