MC Taylor of Hiss Golden Messenger

Durham's Hiss Golden Messenger is back with their 11th studio album 'Terms of Surrender.' It's an album that touches on dark topics in a hopeful and optimistic way, something principal member MC Taylor excels at. The album kicks off with the politically charged 'I Need A Teacher.' To create a video for the song, Taylor and director D.L. Anderson headed to the Teachers March that took place in Raleigh this past May. Taylor says he only had one request of Anderson.

'I wanted him to give me something that would make me cry.'

Check out the video for 'I Need A Teacher' here:
