Hot Chip have announced three UK club shows in June with dates in Sheffield, Cambridge and at London’s Heaven on June 13th. In addition to that, a series of US dates have just been added to the band’s summer run of shows. Click here for link to the Hot Chip ticket shop (for festivals follow links in live section).
Yesterday, the band revealed a YouTube clip featuring a brand new track entitled Flutes. It’s the first track to be heard from their highly anticipated fifth album, In Our Heads (released on June 11th in the UK, June 12th in the US.) A seven minute roofless, rushing anthem-in-waiting, Flutes is a perfect introduction to the new album and is currently making its way into the more discerning DJs’ boxes via white label 12”. It received it’s first ever radio play as Annie Mac’s Hottest Record in the World last night (March 15th). CHECK OUT ‘FLUTES’ HERE.
