Hot Chip premieres new song “Burning Up” — listen

A bonus cut off the band's forthcoming album, Why Make Sense?


    On May 18th, Hot Chip will release their latest album Why Make Sense? through Domino Records. Serving as the follow-up to 2012’s In Our Heads, the 10-track LP was recorded in Oxfordshire and London. Already we’ve heard previews in “Huarache Lights” and “Need You Now”. Now, the UK outfit’s unveiled “Burning Up”, a bonus cut off the Separate EP, a collection of non-album tracks that appear on the deluxe, pre-order version of the new LP.

    Whereas the previous offerings saw Hot Chip light the dance floor on fire, “Burning Up” — despite its name — takes the heat down a couple notches to simmering temperatures. The calmer approach doesn’t take away from the song’s appeal, though; it’s a glistening and lovely listen all the way to the very end. Check it out below via its lyric video.
