Hot Chip Video Track-By-Track: 'In Our Heads'
Live strings, time spent in a proper studio rather than the band's usual reliance on home recording, baby sounds and even Buddhist monks are just a few of the elements that flavor Hot Chip's brand new fifth studio album, "In Our Heads." Watch above as the British electronic/pop quintet divulges what went into each song in our video track-by-track of the album (due June 12 on Domino Records).
In the two years since "One Life Stand," the Mercury Prize and Grammy-nominated group -- Joe Goddard, Alexis Taylor, Felix Martin, Al Doyle and Owen Clarke -- has found that absence not only makes the heart grow fonder, it apparently makes the music grow stronger. "I think because we stopped touring and went off, did a lot of side projects and other things and took a breather from Hot Chip for a little while, [when we] came back together, it just felt really good for all of us," Goddard tells Billboard.com.
