Hot Chip will release a new single in July: It's called "Dark & Stormy" and you can hear it below. The track lives up to its name — unstoppably propulsive, glitchy and distorted, with an almost krautrock bent — and marks a sidestep away from their fluttering last album In Our Heads. What does hold over are its themes of salvation: "When you're feeling dark and stormy / let me sing a song for you."
The single is due out in the U.S. on July 23 as a 12-inch pressed with two previously released B-sides and remixes of In Our Head tracks. The same package will be released a day earlier in the U.K. as a 10-inch. Stream and track list below.
