Hot Chip have announced that the first single from forthcoming fourth album One Life Stand will be its title track.
‘One Life Stand’ will be released on Parlophone on February 1; you can listen to it now at the band’s myspace. The production is beefier than what we’re used to from the band, but the chorus, where the band’s Alexis Taylor coos about standing by your man, is classic Hot Chip.
This Heat’s Charles Hayward, who plays with Taylor in new band About, adds drums to the track, while Steel ‘n’ Skin’s Fimber Bravo provides steel pans.
The Vinyl Factory are releasing an extended mix of ‘One Life Stand’ on a very limited ‘promo’ run of 100 numbered, one-sided 12″s available via Phonica and other selected record shops. The full 12″ vinyl will be released on February 1st.
One Life Stand the album is released February 8.
