Hot Chip are pretty damn excited to share their Peter Serafinowicz-directed video for Night And Day, the first single from their forthcoming fifth LP, In Our Heads (the album is out on June 11th). The (really quite awesome) video features appearances from Terence Stamp, Reggie Watts, Lara Stone and of course the music constructors themselves, Hot Chip.

"Many animals were harmed during the making of this video. Regrettably, none of them made the final edit"Peter Serafinowicz
