Below is the latest video from the band, Need You Now. The song is a deep house that is in stark contrast to the debut single from the album Huarache Lights. The album is available on May 18th in Europe. The album was formed by writing entirely new songs in a short space time and then moving on. Need You Now is a sombre song with a video to match. Front man Alexis Taylor becomes a man battling himself, literally. The surreal clip is a little reminiscent of the Christopher Nolan short ‘Doodlebug’.
