Album artwork leaked for new Hot Chip album

The seventh Hot Chip studio album, A Bath Full of Ecstasy, is set to release later next month (June 21st) but there are a few things to keep you occupied before it arrives.

The band have already dropped the first single off the LP called “Hungry Child” which sets the tone of the album with synthy melodies and deep house percussion. The video for the single is pretty interesting as well. Directed by Saman Kesh and starring Martin Starr (“Freaks and Geeks”) and Milana Vayntrub (“This Is Us”), the video follows a young couple around as the sound of the single becomes louder and louder. It’s as if their internal soundtrack has become exposed for everyone to hear.

The band has also announced a world tour, with festival dates this summer including All Points East and Glastonbury in England, Vida Festival in Spain and NOS Alive in Portugal.

However, what I’ve found most exciting (as a design nerd) is the artwork for the album. The new record will come wrapped in a sleeve designed by Fraser Muggeridge and Jeremy Deller. The sleeve features psychedelic colors a unique printing technique and a very handsome custom typeface. The result is an original piece of artwork to accompany the music.
