Hot Chip Perform ‘Night and Day’ on ‘Jools Holland’
Electro indie veterans Hot Chip will release their fifth studio album, ‘In Our Heads,’ next month, and the group recently performed ‘Night and Day’ from the record on British late night music show ‘Later… with Jools Holland.’
The track is chock full of keyboard goodness. As ChartAttack points out, this also marks the live debut of new drummer Sarah Jones. We have to admit, we’ve grown quite fond of Ms. Jones’ percussion skills.
‘In Our Heads’ will drop in stores on June 12. It is the first record to be engineered by someone outside of Hot Chip.
“[Vocalist] Alexis [Taylor] and I had really good experiences working with this guy on our other projects,” percussionist Joe Goddard told Rolling Stone. “Alexis worked with the engineer, Mark [Ralph], with About Group and I worked with him on 2 Bears. He’s a really, really talented guy with a really great studio.”
Goddard continues: “It’s something that we probably, really should have done earlier. An engineer that really knows what they’re doing just makes such a massive difference to a record. It just means that every sound that is recorded just sounds as good as it can.”
Hot Chip will launch a tour in support of the album starting June 10 in Sheffield, England. The London natives will make a handful of North American dates in July and then return in September. See the group’s current schedule on their official website.
