Alternative rockers The Temper Trap are back with their third album, Thick As Thieves, and their first full-length release since 2012’s self-titled. It sees the dearly loved four-piece collaborating with other songwriters for the first time.
The first single from the album is ‘Fall Together’, an anthemic foray into layered and multi-dimensional pop, dressed with colourful music and engrossing vocals. It marks a return to what the band does best – writing songs that stick in the front of the mind. For this track they worked with Justin Parker (Lana Del Rey, Sia, Bat For Lashes).
With this project collaborations are an ongoing theme, with the album also featuring Ben Allen (Animal Collective, Deerhunter) and Malay, co-writer and producer of Frank Ocean’s Channel Orange. While the previously released ‘Thick As Thieves’ saw the band work with Pacal Gabriel (Ladyhawke, Goldfrapp).
Thick As Thieves is out June 10 through Liberation Music. For more information visit thetempertrap.com.
