Hot Chip have shared their new single « Melody of Love » from A Bath Full of Ecstasy. The song features a breakdown sample from gospel group The Mighty Clouds of Joy. Alexis Taylor refers to “Melody of Love” as “a celebration of joy but recognizes the struggle it can take to get to that point of happiness.” Nima Nourizadeh directed the video, which mainly features just the heads of the band members (and other people).
For their new album, the band worked with outside producers for the first time: France’s Philippe Zdar and Scotland’s Rodaidh McDonald. The album was recorded in Paris and London.
A Bath Full of Ecstasy is out on June 21st via Domino Records.
