Alexis Taylor has been open about his solo plans.

The Hot Chip singer hosted a residency in London, unveiling new material which was often challenging and improvisatory in nature.

Now, though, Alexis Taylor seems ready to take his next step. Signing to Domino, the singer's second solo album 'Await Barbarians' will be released on June 9th.

Ahead of this, the Hot Chip frontman has unveiled preview track 'Elvis Has Left The Building'. A soft, tender, delightfully English meditation on loss, grief and melancholy, there's an edge of fragile beauty to Taylor's voice.

Listen to it below.

'Await Barbarians' will be released on June 9th. Tracklisting:
