Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor announces new solo LP ‘Beautiful Thing,’ shares title track


Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor will release new solo album Beautiful Thing on April 20 via Domino. This marks the first time Taylor has ever worked with a producer on a whole album, in this case onetime DFA Records partner Tim Goldsworthy. It also finds him mixing the spare piano style of his previous solo records with the decidedly more danceable work of Hot Chip. “I am so happy with the results – it feels like quite a departure to me, and we really had some fun making it, with some new technology as well as instruments we created just for this record,” says Alexis. Guests on the album include Hot Chip’s Joe Goddard, Royal Trux’s Neil Hagerty, and Susumu Mukai (Zongamin). 

The first single is Beautiful Thing‘s title track which is definitely on the banger side of the spectrum and is driven by some house-style piano. Watch the somewhat sci-fi themed music video, and check out album art and tracklist, below.
