Dark & Stormy is the first new Hot Chip recording since their acclaimed album, In Our Heads, which featured in The Guardian, MOJO, The Sun, Mixmag and DJ Mag's Top 20 albums of last year. The track was recorded at Club Ralph in London and features Charles Hayward from This Heat / About Group on drums. Dark & Stormy will be available on 10" (RUG537T) and as a Digital bundle (RUG537D) on 22nd July 2013.
The single will also feature a new collaborative version of In Our Heads' album track Look At Where We Are, featuring Tori and Reiko Kudo from the legendary Japanese folk-psych collective, Maher Shalal Hash Baz, who have sung the track in Japanese.
Artwork for the single comes once again from artist and long-term Hot Chip collaborator Nick Relph.
