2009 was a brilliant year for Melbourne outfit The Temper Trap. The accolades began flowing thick and fast as they dropped their debut single ‘Sweet Disposition’ and continued long into the ‘Conditions’ project. They garnered top ten success here in Australia and even peaked inside the top ten over in the UK, where ‘Sweet Disposition’ was classified silver. Said single has gone on to sell more than two million copies worldwide.
Three years on and their record label Liberation has announced that the band is back and champing at the bit to release their forthcoming sophomore album and its first single ‘Need Your Love’.
Serving as the album opener, ‘Need Your Love’ will drop at digital retail on Tuesday March 27, just two months before their self-titled new album hits. They’re now streaming the album track ‘Rabbit Hole’ over on their OFFICIAL WEBSITE.
