New Hot Chip: Look Where We Are / If I Was Your Girlfriend (Prince)


One thing we love Hot Chip for is their brilliant taste in covers – a few years back, they delivered a take on Shakira’s “She Wolf” that we still crank out at parties. Their latest cover is a little more adventurous, but just as unexpected and fun – the band took to a BBC Radio 1 session at London’s Maida Vale studios to record some tracks from their upcoming record In Our Heads, and they incorporated some of Prince’s “If I Was Your Girlfriend” into their version of new song “Look Where We Are.” As it’s technically their own track (just with a little lyrical help from Prince), you won’t be surprised by all that classic Hot Chip flavor – Alexis Taylor’s fragile, nervous vocals preside over a dark, tropical slow-burner. In Our Heads is out June 12.
