The video for The Temper Trap’s ubiquitous single “Need Your Love,” off of their upcoming self-titled release due out June 5th on Glassnote/Columbia, debuts today on Vevo.com.
Directed by Dugan O’Neal in Los Angeles, the video is a take on the age old themes of love, loss and finding friendship where you least expect it.
The band debuted this track among a handful of others on their most recent sold-out underplay tour of North America. The Temper Trap will be back this June playing dates across North American starting with Terminal 5 in New York City on album release day and ending on June 18th in Seattle. It was also announced on Wednesday, April 11th that the band will be returning to Lollapalooza for a second time.
‘The Temper Trap’ is the follow up to 2009’s debut long-player ‘Conditions’. Featuring the singles “Fader,” “Love Lost” and “Sweet Disposition,” the album was one of the breakthrough successes of the year and has now sold over 800,000 copies worldwide. The latest release will be the band’s first as a newly-expanded five-piece outfit following the permanent addition of Joseph Greer on keyboard and guitar. The self-titled album will feature 12 new songs recorded in Los Angeles with producer Tony Hoffer (Beck, M83, Phoenix).
