New album A Bath Full Of Ecstasy released on June 21st
Last month, Hot Chip announced their return – a new album A Bath Full Of Ecstasy set for June 21st, a storming new single (“Hungry Child“) and a series of worldwide sold out shows where they reasserted themselves as everyone’s favourite band, bringing audiences to joyful delight with a set list that included a searing ‘Sabotage’ cover.
Today, we are pleased to share a Paul Woolford remix of “Hungry Child”, Woolford takes Hot Chip’s original and teases it out to a ten-minute piano house banger.
Hot Chip say of the remix: “Wooly was the first person we asked to remix ‘Hungry Child’. He is one of the most experienced DJs/producers in the business, responsible for so many great club moments – from ‘Erotic Discourse’ to ‘Hang Up Your Hang Ups’ and many more under his Special Request alias. His remix is a superbly minimalist take on the song.”
A Bath Full of Ecstasy is the group’s definitive release, crystallising the sound Hot Chip have become celebrated for – bridging euphoria and melancholy with colourful melodies, idiosyncratic vocalisations and pounding electronic pop rhythms. Recorded in Paris and London, it 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: 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.
A Bath Full of Ecstasy will be available on deluxe clear 2LP, standard 2LP, CD, digital downloads and streaming. Pre-orders available HERE
