Hot Chip: New Album Feb. 9


Hot Chip
Hot Chip is back with the stunning fourth studio album One Life Stand, to be released on February 9, 2010 on Astralwerks.

One Life Stand is a full-blooded leap into the unknown, an album that is awash with Hot Chip's trademark creative bravery and a searing emotional intensity from first track to last. One Life Stand is by far Hot Chip's most complete body of work to date, an album that is more cohesive and more soulful than 2007's ambidextrous Made In The Dark and more ambitious than 2005's Mercury nominated and Grammy award winning The Warning. One Life Stand is an album that establishes Hot Chip as one of the most relevant and creative bands of our era.

With Joe Goddard, Alexis Taylor, Felix Martin, Al Doyle, and Owen Clarke at the helm it's no surprise that they borrow, create and take inspiration from a plethora of genres. One Life Stand sees a proliferation of influences that include the burgeoning U.K. funky scene, soul music, modern R&B, northern soul, gospel, golden age electronica, house, as well as the sounds of Arthur Russell, Prince and Theo Parish - which all sit effortlessly alongside the band's signature pop aesthetics, wild electronics, off kilter beats, and intoxicating musical experimentation in a way that only Hot Chip can execute.

Fans will have the chance to pre-purchase the album on Amazon starting this week. Check out the Hot Chip artist store in the coming weeks for exclusive streams and webisodes.
