Hot Chip have revealed the title track from their upcoming album, 'Freakout/Release'.

Following the singles Eleanor and Down, the song utilises distorted vocoders over pulsing synths and thumping percussion, marking the third preview of their eighth full-length, which is scheduled to arrive on August 19 via Domino. Commenting on the song, frontman Alexis Taylor said:

"Freakout/Release is about pent-up energy and the need for release, and escape. It’s also about making sense of music, and at times being plagued by the thing you focus on - music never leaves my head for a second, which is usually a good feeling, but it can feel claustrophobic at times too.

"It’s also about finding your place in relation to music and to performing. The riff should feel brutal and dumb and elemental and Joe was thinking about Seven Nation Army and the simplicity of that swinging from quiet to loud and back and forth."

Hot Chip will play a short run of UK instore shows later in August, prior to four dates at London's O2 Academy Brixton as part of their European tour.
