Mod Sun surprises fans with a new magnificent official video for the acoustic version of his latest single “Flames” featuring Avril Lavigne
Featured along the release of the acoustic version, the video reminiscent of an MTV Unplugged session, features MOD SUN and Avril in an intimate, dimly lit wood room which sets the stage for Avril’s soft guitar strumming.
