Video Premiere: Metro Station, ‘Every Time I Touch You’ (Lyric Video)

Metro Station returns with the lyric video for "Every Time I Touch You."

Metro Station returns with a new dance track, “Every Time I Touch You.”

Remember L.A. pop-rock troupe Metro Station? They were all like, “Shake It,” and the entire world responded with, “OKAY!” Well, the group, led by Mason Musso, took a brief hiatus in 2010, but now they’re officially back with a brand-new single and lyric video — “Every Time I Touch You,” from their forthcoming five-track EP Middle Of The Night, out in late summer. And, in case you had even the slightest doubt, the song’s got bona fide bounce.

As you might imagine, the “Every Time I Touch You” lyric video — which, by the way, is channeling some seeeeeerious Hype Williams/Kanye WestStronger” vibes — not only heralds the return of Metro Station, but it also sheds some much-needed light on the bros’ updated sound. The video doesn’t signature a drastic sonic departure from the boys’ original dance-pop sound, but “Every Time I Touch You” does run a little faster and go a little harder than the band’s previous efforts. Don’t believe us? Just look to the lyric video’s lightning-fast strobe lights and the track’s avalanche of club-ready synths. It’s Metro Station just like we like ‘em — ready to rock but never afraid of a dance break.
