As the new Hot Chip LP (In Our Heads – “no shortage of sublime moments” 8/10m Uncut) is out on June 11th (June 12th in the States) – seemed like a good time to do a round up of all the recent news in case you missed anything. You can pre-order the album here.
The video for Night And Day is online now – directed by Peter Serafinowicz (the man responsible for the video for I Feel Better) and starring Reggie Watts, Lara Stone and Terence Stamp, it’s barking mad and utterly brilliant.
Hot Chip played three tracks from the LP on Later last week – some kind soul did a rip of all them, you can watch them here.
Very limited copies of the Daphni (aka Dan Snaith, aka Caribou) remix of Night And Day are available from the Hot Chip webshop – click here to buy.
