After their majestic set on the Main Stage at Download Festival last weekend (and performing a ridiculously heavy cover of Metallica's 'Battery'), Sweden's four-man rock sensation and party machine Royal Republic present the official video for new track, 'Like A Lover'.
The band commented on the video: "The video was shot in Berlin but the footage was almost completely lost due to a technical malfunction. However, through the miracle of technically skilled people (and money) we were able to salvage much of the footage. Thanks to the the amazing dancers. Our friend and constant director Leo Åkesson and all the crew who worked tirelessly through the entire night to make this video happen. While the song is a little bit of a departure for us musically, somehow it always felt very natural to us. We hope it does for you too."
