Hello all! We are pleased to announce that "How Do You Do" will be the new single from Hot Chip's recent, critically acclaimed album, In Our Heads. Released on 10th September on 12" & digital download, "How Do You Do" is an effortlessly and infectiously joyful electro-pop stomp, an elemental instruction to dance.

The 12" will be well worth getting your hands on, featuring as it does some choice remixes from the likes of Todd Terje, Ossie, Micky Moonlight and James Zabiela. There is also an accompanying video, filmed both in London and LA by Rollo Jackson. Watch it here:

They've also been selected to soundtrack the London 2012 Olympics, with the band creating the introductory music for the table tennis competition. As well as this, they have just confirmed their appearance alongside Pulp on board S.S. Coachella, which sets sail in December 2012 and will offer two separate itineraries - a 3-day trip to the Bahamas and a 4-day trip to Jamaica. For more info, see http://ss.coachella.com.
