Music video

The music video for "Where Are We Runnin'?" was directed by Philip Andelman and Lenny Kravitz. Kravitz portrays an amplified version of himself as he wakes up in a hotel room surrounded by nude women and empty bottles of alcohol. Once awoken, he is taken by his team out of the hotel and to the airport via limousine. Inside a private jet, Kravitz, his band and additional women are shown engaging in varying levels of debauchery as they eat, drink and make love. At the concert venue, a fight breaks out in the dressing room and Kravitz passes out from exhaustion and drug use. He is taken care of on the spot by paramedics. On stage, Kravitz and his band deliver an electrifying performance of the final chorus before retreating to the dressing room. Against the sound of filtered radio interference, Kravitz walks for a full minute in a single shot from the stage back to the dressing room, where he collapses in a chair from exhaustion and the chemicals rushing through his system.
