Serj Tankian has shared a Craig Ray-directed and produced video for his emotional track “Rumi,” which is a tribute to both his six-year-old son of the same name, and the 13th century Sufi poet. The track is taken from Tankian’s new EP, Elasticity, which is out now.


Tankian comments:

“Lyrical specificity in music is generally discouraged because less people internalize them as they have less of a personal connection. But there are cases where it is vital if the inspiration and muse is specific. In this case, a father talking to his son and reverence to the poet that inspired the son’s name could not be re-written so one can generalize.”
