Hot Chip to Mellow Out on Next Album

Hot Chip
Melissa Goldstein

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.
