Hot Chip Cover Bruce Springsteen’s ‘Dancing In The Dark’

What has become a somewhat staple in their recent live shows has now received some studio treatment for electro wizards Hot Chip and their rendition of Bruce Springsteen‘s Dancing In The Dark. Set to appear on the deluxe edition of their 2015 album Why Make Sense?, the cover has also received some pretty stimulating visuals, which can be seen below.

However, the good news doesn’t stop there. If you stick with the 7+ minute clip below, you’ll notice a slight segue into another classic track. Having also previously covered this one in their live shows as well, the band have included their version of LCD Soundsystem‘s All My Friends, which has been slotted in neatly around the 5 minute mark. Not to mention the remix of New Order‘s Tutti Frutti popping up online just a few days ago as well, and it’s safe to say Hot Chip have been very busy indeed lately.

Hot Chip are set to head to Australia early next year for an appearance at Sugar Mountain festival in Melbourne, alongside Dirty ThreeCourtney Barnett and Kelela. It’s been a long time between drinks for the band and some Australian shows, so fans around the country are waiting with bated breath to see if they will announce any other shows. Until then, you can check our interview with the band here and our review of Why Make Sense? here. The deluxe edition of Why Make Sense? is out October 24.
