Alexis Taylor has unveiled "Beautiful Thing", a glitchy, otherworldly first taste of a new solo album of the same name.
Taylor - still on a break from his Hot Chip day job - is following up last year's Listen With(out) Piano reinterpretation album and 2016's impressive Piano record. Hot Chip's last album, Why Make Sense?, was released in 2015.
His fourth solo outing also marks his first collaboration with a producer - that producer being Tim Goldsworthy, the co-founder of Mo Wax and DFA Recordings, and a member of electronic legends UNKLE.
Taylor is set to play a string of European shows in April, kicking off at Bristol's Fleece. Find out full details.
