Freakout/Release: Brown Double Vinyl LP
Pre-Order Item. Release Date Subject to Change.
Release Date: 19th August
Easy to forget that Hot Chip are a banger factory, essentially a supergroup of producers and masters of infectious dance music who converge every few years to remind us - aye, we’re good at big tunes.
A lot of funk on the lead track from this.
Freakout/Release is another dizzying high in a multi-decade career that’s seen Hot Chip continuing to innovate and develop a rich, resonant songcraft. And while they continue to operate at peak form, the album also feels like a new chapter for the group—a collection of flesh-and-blood songs that finds the band reaching into the darkness to emerge as a true creative unit, their gazes fixed positively on the future ahead. The album features Canadian rapper Cadence Weapon, British DJ & musician Lou Hayter & production work from Soulwax.
