“Beautiful Thing” by Alexis Taylor

This morning we announced that Alexis Taylor (Hot Chip) has a new album – Beautiful Thing – that will be out April 20th. Produced by Tim Goldsworthy (DFA, Mo’Wax, UNKLE), the album marks the first time Alexis has worked with a producer on a solo record. Sonically, the music is a perfect meeting point between Alexis’ prior piano-driven solo material and the Hot Chip bangers we know and love. The first single, and title track from the album, “Beautiful Thing”, launched alongside the album announcement.

Beautiful Thing, will be released on April 20th via Domino. It’s described as a very new, very individualist and a reflection of a life that’s changed immeasurably since Alexis first started out in music. This is a musician, writer and singer who has carved his own unique path through the music of the 21st century, completely avoiding getting trapped along the way in dumb oppositions of pop vs avant-garde, dancefloor vs intellect, retro vs modernist and so on.

Additionally, Alexis has announced a run of tour dates in UK and Europe including London’s Omeara, where he playing accompanied by Susumu Mukai (aka Zongamin) on bass and Leo Taylor (The Invisible, Hot Chip) on drums.
