(New York, NY) – Hot Chip are 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. Indeed, 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 is no surprise that they borrow, create and take inspiration from a plethora of influences. One Life Stand sees 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.
Fans will have the chance to pre-buy the album on amazon.com starting this week. Check out the Hot Chip artist store at amazon.com in the coming weeks for exclusive streams and webisodes.
Look for further announcements including a new single and US tour dates soon.
