Listen to Hot Chip's new album Why Make Sense? / by James Kelleher


My torrid public love affair with Hot Chip continues with the news that Why Make Sense? – their sixth album – is now streaming in full on iTunes. The official release date is set for 18th May.

They've got something special planned for the physical release too:

Due to a unique and bespoke printing technique, new album “Why Make Sense?” will come in one of 501 different colours. Combined with subtle variations of the design, this means every copy of the album, on both CD and LP, will feature completely unique artwork.

Great lads altogether.

Here are the two Why Make Sense? promo videos they've released so far, for Need You Now and Huarache Lights. If anybody has a definitive answer for what huarache lights actually are, now is the time to use that comment box below.
