A Bath Full of Ecstasy marks the band’s first project to feature outside production—they worked with Philippe Zdar and Rodaidh McDonald, who’s known for his work with the xx and Jamie xx. Hot Chip’s last record was 2015’s Why Make Sense?. In 2017, the band’s members joined members of Caribou, Floating Points, Simian Mobile Disco, and Junior Boys for an experimental album.
