Hot Chip share new song "Melody of Love"

On June 21st, Hot Chip will release their dynamic new album A Bath Full Of Ecstasy; a fresh, invigorating and essential new chapter in the band's remarkable career. A second song from the album, “Melody Of Love”, is available to hear today.

The album’s opening track, “Melody of Love” began life as a 12-minute instrumental track featuring a sample from the gospel group The Mighty Clouds of Joy. Under the eye of producer Rodaidh McDonald, the group turned it into a bombastic explosion of Technicolor pop. The song is about the importance of the transformative, non-verbal moment – ecstasy as personal happiness, but also of transcendence, of being outside oneself.


A Bath Full Of Ecstasy finds lead vocalist Alexis Taylor stepping out of his comfort zone with his lyricism; though rooted in first person, here his storytelling becomes more bodily, and more open to new ideas. The record is a celebration of joy but recognizes the struggle it can take to get to that point of happiness. You can hear the pleasure Hot Chip had in creating this album and they want to pass on that feeling to the listener: it is time to get lost in A Bath Full Of Ecstasy.

The band will be touring throughout summer and fall, with the North American run kicking off Sept 3rd in Brooklyn, NY. All dates below are on sale now via https://www.hotchip.co.uk/
