Hot Chip and Jarvis Cocker Team Up for New Song ‘Straight to the Morning’

    Hot Chip have enlisted Jarvis Cocker for a new track called ‘Straight to the Morning’. It arrives with an accompanying music video directed by RÉALITÉ. Check it out below.

    Hot Chip produced ‘Straight to the Morning’ alongside Mark Ralph. The song was apparently written with Dua Lipa in mind, but the group thought of Cocker when they DJ’d alongside the Pulp frontman in Paris. The 10″ single, which will include the original track, a Mighty Mouse Remix, and ‘Straight to the Morning’ playing cards, will be released on January 15, 2021, via Domino.

    “‘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,’” Hot Chip said in a statement. “Somehow he seems an unlikely figure in this all, and we like it that way.”

    Cocker 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.”

    Hot Chip’s most recent album, A Bath Full of Ecstasy, was released last year. Earlier this month, they curated the latest entry in the Late Night Tales compilation series.
