Following on from the class of 2010’s One Life Stand, Hot Chip have announced that they will be returning with their fifth album with a release in 2012. With a brilliant title, In Our Heads is set to continue the unending stream of great music from Joe Goddard, Alexis Taylor, Felix Martin, Al Doyle and Owen Clarke.

Set for release on the 11th June 2012, Hot Chip’s In Our Heads will be out on CD, vinyl and digital download, so expect it to spin out the summer on all of the above, along with some potentially epic radio play.

Hot Chip, In Our Heads track listing:

1. Motion Sickness
2. How Do You Do
3. Don’t Deny Your Heart
4. Look At Where We Are
5. These Chains
6. Night And Day
7. Flutes
8. Now There Is Nothing
9. Ends Of The Earth
10. Let Me Be Him
11. Always Been Your Love

The word on the Domino Records grapevine is all “dynamic floor fillers, euphoric earworms and verbose synth-fuelled love songs”, so expect even more of the evolving sounds that Hot Chip have become famous for. With more maturity in the lyrics of One Life Stand tracks, without compromising on great tunes, it’s probably fair to say that In Our Heads will take that progression even further.

As well as releasing the album, Hot Chip will also be back live with a number of festival gigs in the summer.
