The Temper Trap have unveiled their brand new single 'Need Your Love', scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to listen to the track.

The track is the first to be taken from the band's second studio album, which will be self-titled and released in the UK on May 21. 'Need Your Love' itself will be released as a single on May 7.

Speaking to NME previously about the album, the band have described it as a "dark, synth led" record. Lead guitarist Lorenzo Sillitto also revealed that the band's record label had made it clear that they expected the outfit to produce a hit that scores the same level of success as their breakthrough single 'Sweet Disposition'.

He said of this: "There's a huge expectation from our label and fans to record another song as big as 'Sweet Disposition'. That puts pressure on you to succeed."

The Temper Trap will tour the UK in May in support of the album, playing a total of eight shows across the country. The gigs begin in Falmouth at the Princess Pavilions on May 9 and run until May 22, when the band play the second of two shows at London's KOKO venue.

The band were also confirmed as the headliners of Oxfordshire's Truck Festival earlier this week.
