Dancing In The Dark & Deluxe LP News

Hot Chip have announced a brand new four track EP – ‘Dancing In the Dark’ – due for release on Domino on 23rd October 2015. The EP opens up with the band’s fully psychedelic seven minute version of the Springsteen classic, which they have performed live during triumphant headline sets at Glastonbury, Green Man and other festivals over the summer. The EP also features a reworking of ‘Cry For You’ taken from their critically acclaimed recent album, ‘Why Make Sense?’

Both tracks were recorded by the seven piece live band, which includes drummer Sarah Jones and multi-instrumentalist Rob Smoughton, at the legendary RAK Studios in London and mixed by David Wrench. Also included on the EP are remixes of the single ‘Huarache Lights’ by Soulwax and A/Jus/Ted.

The video for ‘Dancing In the Dark’ has been directed by Kieran Evans. All live footage in the video was recorded this summer on Super 8 at Webster Hall in New York City – watch closely for cameos from David Byrne and Sinkane who joined the band onstage for this song.

A definitive edition of Why Make Sense? featuring the original album, the ‘Separate’ EP from the deluxe release augmented by the brand new ‘Dancing In the Dark’ EP will also be available on 23rd October .
