Hot Chip have debuted a new song, ‘Losing My Head (Superpitcher Sub)’, with all proceeds from Bandcamp sales of the track going to EarthPercent.
Recorded during the sessions of the band’s album ‘A Bath Full of Ecstasy’, the band explain: “Despite the challenges that our industry faces in modifying its working methods in order to limit damage to the climate we feel that it’s incredibly important to face up to those changes. The scientific consensus on the impending climate emergency is irrefutable and we all need to recognise our responsibilities in attempting to avert it. In all honesty it should be our number one priority at this moment. Our government continually fails in making it so but we need to come together to set a better example.”
As well as the song, the band will play a special show at London’s EartH next month to raise more money. Taking place on 7th November, the show will be presented alongside Music Declares Emergency’s #NOMUSICONADEADPLANET campaign.
