Hot Chip single "I Feel Better" + remixes

Following the release of the band's masterful fourth long player One Life Stand, Hot Chip are delighted to announce details of their new single "I Feel Better", to be released digitally April 20, 2010 on Astralwerks.

Indeed, Hot Chip is back with an epic hit of euphoric hands-in-the-air bliss. A House stomp that summons up the spirit of Black Box, S'Express and InnerCity's "Goodlife" and takes inspiration from the burgeoning UK Funky scene.

From computer looped strings and Joe Goddard's Auto-Tuned vocals, the track simmers away before the chorus lifts-off with enough power to blow a fuse in your speakers!

It's one of the great pop choruses of our time; clunky Chicago house synths colliding with an uplifting vocal sung by Alexis Taylor as if he's been waiting all his life to sing it.

"I Feel Better" is pulsing modern-day disco: an electronic punch that refuses to sacrifice any emotional complexity. In short, it's a track that belongs in nodding heads, dancing feet and the annals of great contemporary pop music.

"I Feel Better" has had a phenomenal reaction on the band's recently completed UK tour and special NY dates with the song rivaling "Over and Over" and "Ready For The Floor" in terms of audience reaction every night, despite having only appeared as an album track so far. Furthermore, this song has taken on a life of its own online becoming one of the most talked about tracks among blogs and fans alike.

As always, Hot Chip have enlisted a rich and varied selection of remixers, so keep your ears to the ground for storming remixes from the legendary Richard X, Den Haan and Funky re-edit from London's Ill Blu.

As previously announced Hot Chip will be bringing their explosive live show back to North America in April. The band will be playing tracks from new album as well as old favorites.

The xx will be the band's special guests on this tour.
