Joe Goddard Shares New Single ‘Follow You’

Alongside some live dates...

Joe Goddard has shared new solo cut ‘Follow You’.

The producer has multiple roles – notably a key member of Hot Chip, his solo pursuits build up into an entire creative galaxy.

New album ‘Harmonics’ lands on July 12th, 14 tracks that touch on some of the major inspirations in his work – from UKG to lush house via left-field disco and beyond.

Set to play a flurry of live shows this November, Joe Goddard has just shared new song ‘Follow You’. The perfect blend of light and shade, it moves from pointed, uplifting electronics to that dulcet, sometimes downbeat vocal.

There’s a beautiful counter melody in here, too, one which recalls 8-bit melodies from the NES or Master System era.

“With all the different people on this record, I’ve been working on how to respect the contribution they make and not trying to be the one who has to lead everything,” Joe says. “That follows through into the songs where I’m singing. I tried to write words without having too much of an idea of what I’m trying to express, where I’m just writing a stream of consciousness.” 

Tune in now.
