Alexis Taylor shares new single 'House Of The Truth'

With his eagerly-awaited new solo album just over a month away, Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor has now dropped the next cut to be lifted from his forthcoming full-length.

The new single 'House Of The Truth' comes accompanied by a brilliant new video, directed by Simon Owens, and follows on from the previously shared track 'Dying In Heaven' in previewing his sixth LP 'Silence', which is out on the 17th September via AWAL.

Speaking about the new offering, he said, “‘House of the Truth’ started out as an up-tempo Hot Chip track, taking influence from Moodymann’s dusty sounding house records. For various reasons the song never came out. I was quite deflated as I believed in its strength.

"I returned to it in solo gigs, stripping it back to just piano and a drum machine. Having struggled to find the right direction for something I really loved, and which fans always asked me about, eventually I settled on this slowly evolving groove which builds with dramatic tension to a crescendo over its 4 minutes. It felt like I had finally discovered the gospel song that was hidden away inside the multiple original versions of the song.”

While Evans added about the video, “A lot has changed in the intervening few years since my last music video with Alexis/and or Hot Chip and yet some things remain the same. Alexis and I envisioned a giant rope and it became reality - a one and the same Sisyphean task and idea! Outside Alexis’ new home, left to weather whatever life threw at them, were five doors, we travelled with the giant rope, through these doors, until we reached Videonirvana.”
