Ra Ra Riot is excited to reveal the video for "Water," from the recently announced forthcoming album, Need Your Light out February 19, 2016. "Water" premiered last month to rave reviews. The single was quickly picked up by many press outlets including NME, which named it one of its Best New Tracks. Vampire Weekend's Rostam conceived of the video and co-directed it with Josh Goleman (Alabama Shakes, Skrillex, Gary Clark Jr).

"It was shot anamorphic in one day in Joshua Tree and L.A.," says lead-singer Wes Miles. "The concept came from Rostam, co-writer and producer of the song. We actually started talking about this video as we were still imagining and writing the story in the song. The concept of a weary hitchhiker coming out of the desert toward Los Angeles informed the final lyrics, so it really feels like an extension of the song."

The video, which premiered on Ra Ra Riot's Tumblr via VEVO, can be watched here. ·read less·
