A Bath Full Of Ecstasy out June 21 on Domino

English indie band Hot Chip are today sharing their new song, “Melody of Love.” The new track is the second single off the band’s forthcoming seventh album, A Bath Full Of Ecstasy, following “Hungry Child.” The new single is accompanied by a Nima Nourizadeh-directed music video – watch below.
 

 

“Melody of Love” began life as a 12-minute instrumental track featuring a sample from the gospel group The Mighty Clouds of Joy. Under the eye of producer Rodaidh McDonald, the group turned it into a bombastic explosion of Technicolor pop. The song is about the importance of the transformative, non-verbal moment – ecstasy as personal happiness, but also of transcendence, of being outside oneself.
 

Hot Chip will be touring throughout summer and fall, with a North American run kicking off Sept 3rd in Brooklyn, NY. All dates below are now on sale HERE.
