Hot Chip's Alexis Taylor has announced his sixth solo album Silence, and has shared the opening track "Dying in Heaven" as the lead outing.

"Dying in Heaven" is Taylor's first new solo outing since 2018's Beautiful Thing album, and is accompanied by a Brian DeRan-directed video.

The idea for Taylor's Silence album began a few years ago, and he planned to record sounds from public spaces as the foundation for the album, but after getting tinnitus from a 2019 Hot Chip show, the idea shifted. Taylor says, "I started to think about what it meant to me to lose quietness, solitude, meditative head space - as that was no longer available to me."
