Having kept themselves busy with a string of new releases since their most recent album 'A Bath Full Of Ecstasy' last year, Hot Chip have now teamed up with Jarvis Cocker for a very special collaboration.
The new single 'Straight To The Morning' was originally written with Dua Lipa in mind, but the legendary Pulp frontman ended up jump on the song, which was produced by the band alongside Mark Ralph.
Speaking about the new offering, the band said, “‘Straight To The Morning’ is a disco anthem about going out, for a time when people really can’t, and it features our friend Jarvis Cocker urging us to go “straight through until the break of dawn.” Somehow he seems an unlikely figure in this all, and we like it that way.”
While Jarvis added, “This was the very last musical session I was involved in before lockdown. It felt very poignant to be singing a song about dancing all night long in a club whilst knowing it wouldn’t be possible to do such a thing for the foreseeable future. We danced around the studio quite a lot in the meantime though. It was fun to be a member of the Straight Through Crew for a day.”
