Hot Chip have today shared the first song from their forthcoming new record.
The brand new track, ‘Hungry Child’, fuses the uplifting soft pads and melodic keys of classic soulful house and the percussive swing of UK garage, full of sweet vocalisations and rhythmic snaps, to make an instant, club-ready hit for six glorious minutes.
The video for ‘Hungry Child’ is directed by Saman Kesh and features Martin Starr and Milana Vayntrub.
Listen to ‘Hungry Child’ by Hot Chip on the Official Fantasy Premier League Playlist on Spotify.
Hot Chip will release their electrifying seventh album, A Bath Full of Ecstasy, on June 21.
Their third album for Domino, A Bath Full of Ecstasy is the group’s definitive release, crystallising the sound they’ve become celebrated for – bridging euphoria and melancholy with colourful melodies, idiosyncratic vocalisations and pounding electronic pop rhythms.
Recorded in Paris and London, the album sees the group (Owen Clarke, Al Doyle Joe Goddard, Felix Martin and Alexis Taylor) open up to a more adventurous and collaborative song-writing process, choosing to work with outside producers for the first time.
They picked Philippe Zdar, the French maestro who’s shaped the magic of Cassius and Phoenix, and Rodaidh McDonald, the Scot who’s collaborated with The XX, David Byrne and Sampha, among others.
