Guess what peeps? Hot Chip’s Alexis Taylor has just announced he’ll be releasing a new solo album on April 20 called ‘Beautiful Thing’, and for the first time ever he has teamed up with another producer to help him pull it all together. Who is this producer you ask? Well, it is DFA Records co-founder Tim Goldsworthy, who was no doubt eager to get his hands dirty on some music-making again, and today we get to hear the album’s first single and title-track, which also comes with a Edwin Burdis directed music video.
“I made this album with Tim Goldsworthy (formerly of Mo’ Wax/Unkle/DFA) – my first time working on solo music with a producer. I am so happy with the results – it feels like quite a departure to me, and we really had some fun making it, with some new technology as well as instruments we created just for this record…
Whilst primarily made on my own with Tim, other guest musicians include Neil Hagerty, Susumu Mukai, and Emma Smith, and Joe Goddard from Hot Chip produced one track too. I am very excited for everyone to get to hear the LP in April.” – Alexis Taylor
