Published Feb 10, 2015Dancefloor-friendly UK outfit Hot Chip recently teased the idea of a new album with a mysterious trailer, but now they've set the record straight and revealed plans for a new LP titled Why Make Sense?
The new, 10-track collection will arrive on May 19 via Domino Records. The limited-edition deluxe version will also feature a four-song EP titled Separate, featuring additional non-album cuts.
Why Make Sense? was recorded in Oxfordshire and London, with producer Mark Ralph. It marks the follow-up to 2012's In Our Heads.
The new album artwork is pictured above, while the full tracklisting can be found below.
