Hot Chip: Album Title / Release Date

Hot Chip are back with the stunning fourth studio album One Life Stand released 8th February 2010 on Parlophone records.

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. Indeed, One Life Stand is by far and away 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 nominated 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 is no surprise that they borrow, create and take inspiration from a plethora of influences. One Life Stand see’s a proliferation of influences as diverse as the burgeoning UK funky scene to soul music, modern R&B, Northern Soul, Gospel, Golden Age Electronica, House, the sounds of Arthur Russell, Prince and Theo Parish, and they 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.

And if that whets you’re appetite,One Life Stand is available to pre order now alongside tickets for the UK tour dates. Place an order on Hotchip.co.uk and you will receive the exclusive track Take It In, the first aural inclination of how the new record may sound.

More announcements including a new single and full tracklisting, coming soon.
