Hot Chip deliver new track 'Freakout/Release'

With their eagerly-awaited new album now just a few weeks away, Hot Chip have unveiled the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'Freakout/Release' follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Eleanor' and 'Down' in previewing their eighth LP, also called 'Freakout/Release', which is out on the 19th August via Domino.

Speaking about the new offering, frontman Alexis Taylor said, “Freakout/Release is about pent-up energy and the need for release, and escape. It’s also about making sense of music, and at times being plagued by the thing you focus on - music never leaves my head for a second, which is usually a good feeling, but it can feel claustrophobic at times too. It’s also about finding your place in relation to music and to performing. The riff should feel brutal and dumb and elemental and Joe was thinking about Seven Nation Army and the simplicity of that swinging from quiet to loud and back and forth.”
