Hot Chip cover Bruce Springsteen's "Dancing in the dark" with video, new EP with re-work of "Cry For You"

Hot Chip are to release a brand new four track EP entitled Dancing In the Dark, this Friday October 23rd. The EP opens up with the band’s seven minute version of the Springsteen classic, which they performed live during their triumphant headline sets at Glastonbury, Governors Ball and other festivals over the summer. The EP also features a reworking of ‘Cry For You’ taken from their recent album, Why Make Sense?. Both tracks wererecorded 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 their single, ‘Huarache Lights’, by Soulwax and A/Jus/Ted.
