Temples ignite their summer psychedelics on new single "You're Either On Something", lifted from their forthcoming third album Hot Motion.

"You're Either On Something" is the second single from Temples' new album Hot Motion, after June's lead single "Hot Motion".

Speaking about the new offering, vocalist James Bagshaw explains, "I’m really proud of "You’re Either On Something" lyrically because I feel deeply connected with the words – they’re so truthful. On that track, I can hear influences of stuff that I listened to when I was growing up. There’s almost a nostalgia to that track, even though it’s very forward-looking."

Temples' upcoming album Hot Motion is their first since 2017's Volcano. Speaking about their forthcoming album, bassist Thomas Walmsley says, "It felt like there was a darker edge to what we were coming up with and we wanted to make sure that carried through across the whole record. 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 for us is something we wanted to make sure was in there and explore further."

"You're Either On Something" is out now. Hot Motion arrives 27 September via ATO Records. Temples play London's O2 Shepherd's Bush Empire on 8 December. Find out more.
