Actor and musician Erich Bergen released his new single, “Running Through The Night,” today, Sept. 7. Bergen currently stars as Blake Moran on the hit CBS television show, “Madam Secretary,” and has just completed his his official Broadway debut, starring in Sara Bareilles’ Waitress The Musical, opposite Katharine McPhee this summer.
“This song is the most personal song I’ve ever released,” shares the native New Yorker. “In fact, I think it’s the most personal piece I’ve ever worked on…in any medium.” The single features values of strength, insight and inspiration.
“It’s a song about growing up” he continues. “I’ve found that becoming an adult means acknowledging that you’re often not where you thought you’d be, either in wealth, status or happiness. It’s good to accept reality, however that doesn’t mean you have to settle for it. The song is deeply personal and reflective, as it comes after Bergen’s battle with cancer, and is mentioned in the song’s lyrics.
“You never expect that ‘C’ word to be thrust upon you when you are in your mid-twenties, yet there I was. That was one of those things that no one tells you about. They warn you about taxes, they even warn you about death. But cancer? Nope.” Bergen’s cancer has been in remission for five years now, and he is determined to live his life to it’s fullest.
“No matter how many times I get beaten down, I continue to get up, brush the dust off, and keep running. I’ve got a lot of bruises, but I’m thankful for each one of them”.
Catch Bergen on the television screen this October for season five of “Madam Secretary,” and he’s also been Clint Eastwood’s Jersey Boys, as Bob Gaudio, reprising his role from the Tony-winning stage production. Bergen’s also seen in the 2018 indie film, Humor Me, co-starring Jemaine Clement and Elliot Gould.
