Hot Chip have been covering Bruce Springsteen’s classic “Dancing in the Dark” (from Born in the U.S.A.) at live shows recently. Now they have released a video for a studio version of the song. Towards the end the track seamlessly morphs into a cover of LCD Soundsystem’s “All My Friends,” so it’s kind of an LCD Soundsystem/Springsteen mash-up. The Keiran Evans-directed video combines Super 8 live footage of the band performing at Webster Hall in New York City with clips from 1980’s TV shows and dating videos. The cover will be included on a new Dancing in the Dark EP that is due out this Friday via Domino.

The Dancing in the Dark EP will also include a RAK remix of “Cry For You” and remixes of Huarache Lights by both Soulwax and A/Jus/Ted. You can also stream the previously shared Soulwax remix below. Hot Chip’s latest album, Why Make Sense?, came out back in May via Domino and the band are also releasing a deluxe edition of that this Friday, which includes the Separate EP of four bonus tracks. The tracklistings for both are below too, followed by the band’s tour dates.

Also, Hot Chip just remixed New Order’s “Tutti Frutti” and we just posted that here.
