Joe Goddard today releases his brand new single, ‘Home’. Featuring vocals from Michigan born vocalist Daniel Wilson, this disco-sampling deep house banger is all about that long cab ride home through London after a night out clubbing.

‘Home’ is taken from Joe’s forthcoming solo album Electric Lines. All about connections, the title refers to the colourful cables that link the modules in his Eurorack synthesizer and to the invisible wires that run between all the different kinds of electronic music that he loves.
An apt title for a record which brilliantly unites the strands of his prolific career: member of Hot Chip and the 2 Bears, songwriter, producer, DJ, Grammy award nominated remixer and co-founder of the Greco-Roman label.
Like Four Tet, Caribou and Jamie xx, Joe combines a thirst for experimentation, an instinctive understanding of the dancefloor and a love of left-of-centre pop music. Electric Lines confirms his place in the front rank of British producers.
Home follows previous singles ‘Music Is The Answer’ and ‘Lose Your Love’ and elsewhere on the album, Hot Chip bandmate Alexis Taylor features on the title track ‘Electric Lines’. Jess Mills graces the album’s two most irresistible pop songs, ‘Ordinary Madness’ and ‘Music Is the Answer’.
Joe himself sings on a few tracks including the deeply personal ‘So Long’, a tender reflection on parenthood and mortality. Electric Lines treasure chest of styles also includes lustrous electronic soul, rippling UK garage (‘Truth Is Light’) and shamanic psychedelic techno (‘Children’). The result is an album set to draw the map of 2017’s musical landscape and cement Joe Goddard as one of the UK’s most credible and well respected producers.
