Expect less "ready for the floor" and more "heading for the door" on Hot Chip's new album. The Brit electro band's follow-up to 2008's dance-tastic album Made in the Dark will feature mellow "end of the night tunes."

"We're kind of stepping things down a bit because we want to make this next album quite simple, gentle, focused; just 10 or 11 tracks of really excellent pop songs that hopefully will become timeless classics," synth player Joe Goddard told BBC 6 Music. "They'll be club tunes but not the really banging ones. Making songs like that always gives you the scope to do a reallybanging remix, which we'll probably try and do aswell."

Taking cues from '80s R&B duo Womack and Womack's "Teardrops" and '90s pop a' la Crystal Waters' "Gypsy Woman," the quintet's fourth album is aimed at an early 2010 release.
