Joe Goddard and Hayden Thorpe unite on new single "Unknown Song"

08 May 2020, 11:31 | Written by Cerys Kenneally

Hot Chip's Joe Goddard and Hayden Thorpe (formerly of Wild Beasts) have teamed up on collaborative single "Unknown Song".

"Unknown Song" is the first time the two artists have worked together, and marks Thorpe's first new offering since last year's "Full Beam" single.

It's also Goddard's first new outing since releasing A Bath Full of Ecstasy with Hot Chip last year.

Thorpe says of the collaborative track that was written and recorded earlier this year, "the lockdown has really made it apparent how music allows us to feel a synchronicity with our fellow beings. In the absence of touch, music is that sensual meeting point."

Goddard adds, "we are in the midst of a crisis but gaining that new appreciation of dancing together is a small positive that I hope to hold onto after all of this."

Joe Goddard and Hayden Thorpe's new single "Unknown Song" is out now on Domino.
