Hot Chip have released a new single, ‘Fire of Mercy’.
The track features Yunè Pinku, and follows on from the release of their eighth album ‘Freakout/Release’.
Talking about the new single, Joe Goddard says: “‘Fire of Mercy’ relates to the central concept of William Blake’s ‘Songs of Experience’ – it bemoans the corruption that inevitably comes from adulthood and longs for a return to the purity of childhood.”
Yunè Pinku adds: “Massive honour to work with Hot Chip as they’re huge legends within the electronic world. When they played me Fire of Mercy and asked me to jump on the track, I was thrilled to work with them.”
