“We’re glad to be able to support the essential work that Crisis is doing with the homeless community at this time of year when so many factors combine to make life extremely difficult for vulnerable people on the streets or in temporary accommodation,” commented the band.

Earlier this month, Hot Chip were announced as one of the supports for New Order‘s homecoming Manchester show next year. Taking place at Manchester’s Heaton Park on September 10, 2021, Working Men’s Club will also perform.

Hot Chip shared latest single ‘Straight to the Morning’, featuring Cocker, back in October. The band’s last studio album was 2019’s ‘A Bath Full of Ecstasy’.

In a four-star reviewNME declared the record Hot Chip’s strongest in years, calling it “an album about being suffocated by the world around you and trying to find moments of joy within that world, however small, in order to survive”.
