Two of my favorite things came together earlier this week when Hot Chip
dropped by BBC Radio 1 with Zane Lowe
and busted out a cover of Prince's "If I Was Your Girlfriend." Starting out with a performance of "Look At Where We Are," a very impressive ballad from their upcoming album In Our Heads
, Hot Chip then transitioned to the Sign "O" the Times
classic, adding some steel drum to it for good measure.
You can hear the cover by checking out the BBC session
and fast-forwarding to the 1:19:50 mark. Or if that sounds too complicated, a fan did the grunt work for us and posted the song on Soundcloud, so stream it below while you can.
In Our Heads
is out on 6/11, the album's first single is "Night and Day."
