New album Electric Lines out April 21st
Joe Goddard today announces brand new track ‘Electric Lines’,
featuring Alexis Taylor, ahead of the release of solo album Electric Lines this Friday, April 21st.
The track premieres today through a completely unique immersive site that has been created by Domino Recording Co and Joe.
Designed to share his stories directly with fans prior to Electric Lines’ release, the site is an extension of Goddard’s playlist of the same name - which he’ll continue to curate throughout 2017. Charting his musical influences, passions and the friendships that inspired the creative process when making the forthcoming album, the interactive site uses Spotify’s API technology to power a radio show style experience with original audio commentary from Goddard.
London-based Toby Mortimer (George Fitzgerald’s ‘Crystalise, Loyle Carner’s ‘Stars & Shards’, King Creosote’s ‘You Just Want’) created a set of bespoke illustrations for the site, with audio responsive loops animated by design collective People.

the new single here:
Electric Lines is all about connections. The title
refers to the colourful cables that link the modules in his Eurorack
synthesizer and to the invisible wires that run between all the different kinds
of electronic music that he loves. An apt title for a record which brilliantly
unites the strands of his prolific career: a member of Hot Chip and the 2
Bears, songwriter, producer, DJ, Grammy award nominated remixer and co-founder
of the Greco-Roman label.
