Premiere: Alexis Taylor announces new album with epic title track, Beautiful Thing

The Hot Chip frontman's next LP is due April 20, produced by the legendary Tim Goldsworthy.

Beautiful Thing is the forthcoming solo album from much-adored Hot Chip frontman Alexis Taylor, to be released via Domino Recordings on April 20, and we are incredibly honoured to get to premiere the title track and first single from it. And what a stunning first cut - both visually and aurally - Beautiful Thing is. The single itself is a throbbing burst of experimental electronica, blending elements of weirdo-disco and acid house for a beautifully crazy hot mess that never feels out of control thanks to Taylor's inimitable, at-times-haunting vocal work. This track also marks the beginning of a new partnership for Taylor, working with legendary producer Tim Goldsworthy (Mo Wax, DFA) on the entire album - the first time he has worked with a producer on his solo output.

If all this wasn't enough, the track also comes with an equally weird and wonderful video clip directed by Edwin Burdis, resulting in an utterly engrossing viewing and listening experience, one that has us feverishly anticipating what's to come on the full LP. Check out the video and album tracklist below, and you can pre-order Beautiful Thing HERE.
