Today, Hot Chip are pleased to announce their brand new single “Straight To The Morning” featuring the inimitable Jarvis Cocker. Produced by the band and Mark Ralph, the song is a transportive tonic of fresh, modern disco that harks back (& hopefully forward) to carefree communion on the dancefloor.
WaOriginally written with Dua Lipa in mind, the track found a new life amidst a collaboration that sprang from Hot Chip and Jarvis Cocker DJing together at Paris’ legendary Les Bains-Douches. The quintet said of working with Cocker: “‘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.’ Somehow he seems an unlikely figure in this all, and we like it that way.”
Jarvis adds: “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.”
