Hot Chip collaborate with New Order's Bernard Sumner
Converse, a wholly owned subsidiary of NIKE, Inc., has released a short film featuring Alexis Taylor and Joe Goddard of Hot Chip. This follows the release on October 6th of the original track "Didn't Know What Love Was", a musical collaboration featuring Bernard Sumner from Bad Lieutenant, New Order and Joy Division, Alexis and Joe (Hot Chip) and Hot City.

This is part of Converse's year-long campaign, launched with the release of the track that celebrates the UK music scene and continues the iconic footwear brand's commitment as - and we quote - "a catalyst for freedom of expression" and underlining its longstanding connection with music. A second track, featuring musician Graham Coxon, Paloma Faith and Bill Rider Jones, formerly of the Coral, will be released next January.

"Didn't Know What Love Was" is available now for free at www.converse.co.uk and authorized Converse websites around the world.

"Being able to work alongside Bernard, whose music has been a huge influence on us since we were young, and Hot City, who are creating some of the groundbreaking music of today, was an amazing experience," said Alexis of Hot Chip. "As soon as we entered the studio, we connected immediately and began weaving together various influences and genres."



Hailing from London, Hot Chip entered the picture with the release of their 2000 debut, "Mexico". In 2002, Hot Chip self-released "Sanfrandisco E-Pee" which showed the band dabbling in more playful sounds. The group signed to N.Y.C. record label DFA in 2005 and released the "Over and Over EP", as well as "The Warning". The 2007 single "Ready for the Floor" heralded the arrival of "Made in the Dark". "One Life Stand" followed in 2010, along with a remixes collection later that year.
