Hot Chip is getting a head start on the weekend with their new single "Eleanor," which arrived Thursday.

The dazzling new track, out now on Domino Records, is the latest of the band's upcoming album Freakout/Release, which is out Aug. 19. And it's definitely worth the listen.

“It’s about the world smashing into you, waves crashing into you, all-encompassing pain, and how you have to walk through it," says the band's Alexis Taylor. "The verses are about separation when families are divided against their will. It’s about strong friends. It’s also about Samuel Beckett giving Andre The Giant lifts to school, and about how Beckett must have learned a lot from Andre’s wisdom.”
