Take a listen to Hot Chip‘s epic seven minute version of Springsteen’s classic “Dancing In The Dark”, off a brand new EP of the same name (out October 23rd).  This version kind of feels more like a mashup, as at some point during the song it morphs to a cover of LCD Soundsystem‘s “All My Friends”, before the track fades out.  This cover was an audience favourite this year, showcased at their triumphant headline sets at Glastonbury, Governors Ball and other festivals over the summer. The EP also features a reworking of “Cry For You” and remixes of their single “Huarache Lights” by Soulwax and A/Jus/Ted.

The video for the full-length version of “Dancing In the Dark” was directed by Kieran Evans and features live footage recorded this summer on Super 8 at Webster Hall in New York City, plus a cameo from David Byrne and Sinkane who joined Hot Chip onstage for this song.
