The most enjoyable band you could go to see in the last 18 months, Hot Chip, are offering a free track from their forthcoming album.
You can get 'I Became A Volunteer' by clicking here.
The song is from their as yet untitled third album, which is to be released next year.
Posting on their website recently, band man Joe Goddard said;
"We are currently mixing our next album and it will be released by DFA/EMI in February 2008. Most people who have heard it say it is pretty good. There are highs, lows and some in the middle bits on it and it features a variety of musical styles."
Earlier this month, Hot Chip released a limited edition 12" of 'Shake A Fist', a song they've been playing out live for some time. Listen to that here.
In extra-extra HC news, the quintet recently remixed 'Aerodynamik' / 'La Forme' by Kraftwerk. You can hear them on the Kraftwerk MySpace. Which seems to be broken right now. Das Kaput. You can buy them though. On CD, vinyl and electro-node formats.
NB: We don't know why a fifth member of Hot Chip is missing from the photo above. Sorry, Chip fans.
