Hot Chip to release One Life Stand in February

Hot Chip will release their fourth album One Life Stand on February 5th (IE) and 8th (UK), it was announced yesterday.

A press release describes the album as “a full blooded leap into the unknown” and one that is “more cohesive and more soulful”. One Life Stand apparently draws inspiration from UK funky, soul music, modern R&B, Northern Soul, Gospel, Golden Age Electronica, House, the sounds of Arthur Russell, Prince and Theo Parish.
