UK trio Temples has announced their third album, Hot Motion, which will be out via ATO Records on September 27th. Today, the trio shared the title track of the record, which is about “the tensions of desire, dreams and nightmares” that can often haunt us. Enjoy:

“It felt like there was a darker edge to what we were coming up with and we wanted to make sure that carried through the whole record,” shared bassist Thomas Walmsley on Hot Motion. “It’s not a ten track, relentless rock record from start to finish, it’s got a lot of light and shade and more tender moments, but that heavier, darker sound is something we wanted to explore further.”
