AWOLNATION have released the video for their new single "Handyman." The clip was directed by Ravi Dhar, who previously helmed the band’s vid for “Passion,” and it stars established actor Monte Markham and Alex Essoe (Starry Eyes).

The video was shot in rural California and tells the story of a lovestruck couple, from the moment they met as young adults to the time they’re senior citizens. Shots of the band performing are intercut with the main narrative.

Frontman Aaron Bruno said he just wanted to put out a solid love song, explaining that we can all be "the handyman (or woman) of the heart.”

The song is mid-paced but upbeat, filled with delicately plucked guitars, passionate vocals and a steady beat. The soft verse builds into a euphoric chorus, replete with ”ahh-ahhh” and “do-do-do-do-do” background vocals.

“Handyman” will be featured on the band’s upcoming album, Here Come The Runts, which comes out February 2.
