ALEXIS TAYLOR SHARES NEW SONG “OH BABY” + ANNOUNCES NORTH AMERICAN SUMMER TOUR
FORTHCOMING ALBUM BEAUTIFUL THING OUT ON APRIL 20th VIA DOMINO RECORDS
Next month (April 20th) sees the release of Beautiful Thing, Alexis Taylor’s fourth solo album. It is an album of electronic thrills, dark spaces, memories of dancefloors and heartfelt writing; it’s composed, it’s improvised, it’s accidental, it’s strange, but it’s also very immediate.
Today, Taylor shares brand new track ‘Oh Baby’, a glorious burst of bubble-gum pop with frenetic piano and detuned synths ripping through it.
Alexis says of the track: “‘Oh Baby’ is an exuberant love song, with a nod to the music I love by the likes of Alex Chilton and Paul McCartney. It was produced by Joe Goddard and features John Coxon on guitar and some Hot Chip band members playing on it too. I wrote it in about the time it takes to listen to it, and the finished performance was recorded live in the studio. The video by Simon Owens shows my eyeballs coming out of my head and having a whirlwind romance with each other.”
The other nine tracks on Beautiful Thing are produced by Tim Goldsworthy, co-founder of Mo’ Wax and DFA Recordings and member of UNKLE, and mark the first time Alexis has made a solo album with a producer. Watch the video for the previously shared title track HERE.
Alexis will be skipping the pond and coming to North America for a Summer tour starting in June, playing both coasts and a few towns in between. Full tour details below and tickets on sale HERE this Friday.
