Hot Chip: Bruce Springsteen, LCD Soundsystem covered in new clip
The alt-electronic group Hot Chip has shared its cover of Bruce Springsteen’s “Dancing In The Dark” — along with an appropriately ’80s-themed music video.
The group has repeatedly performed the 1984 classic as a set closer while touring in support of May’s Why Make Sense?, and this version will appear on the deluxe version of the album that’s slated for an Oct. 24 release. Keiran Evans directed the video, which includes clips from ’80s televison shows, and Super 8 footage of Hot Chip performing at New York’s Webster Hall.
The video also segues into a cover of LCD Soundsystem’s “All My Friends,” which Hot Chip recently played in New York with LCD alum Nancy Whang. LCD Soundsystem recently made headlines when reports emerged that the band was considering reuniting in 2016.
