Hot Chip are to release a brand new four track EP entitled ‘Dancing In the Dark’, on 23rd October 2015. The EP opens up with the band’s epic seven minute version of the Springsteen classic, which they performed live during their 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?.

In their live shows for the past few months, UK synthpop heroes Hot Chip have been covering “Dancing In The Dark,” Bruce Springsteen’s synthpoppiest hit and one of his biggest. And later this week, they’ll release a studio version of that cover, which blows the song out past the seven-minute mark and concentrates more on the sugary melodies of the original than the grunty intensity. (It also includes, out of nowhere, a big chunk of LCD Soundsystem’s “All My Friends.”) The cover leads off the group’s new Dancing In The Dark EP, which also features three remixes, including Soulwax’s take on “Huarache Lights.”

Director Kieran Evans has put together a video for Hot Chip’s cover, which mixes footage of the band performing live with TV Carnage-style footage of old, cheesed-out ’80s public access television.
