Listen: Hot Chip share cover of Velvet Underground’s ‘Candy Says,’ announce ‘Late Night Tales’ compilation

'Late Night Tales' is set for release on October 2

Electronic outfit Hot Chip have announced that they’ve signed up to curate the latest entry in the Late Night Tales mix series, which is set for release on October 2nd. As part of the announcement, they’ve shared a cover The Velvet Underground’s “Candy Says.”

The new 19-track compilation is set to arrive on October 2nd, and it features three new Hot Chip tracks in addition to a cover of The Velvet Underground’s “Candy Says.” Hot Chip’s collection of Late Night Tales was spearheaded by the band’s Alexis Taylor and Joe Goddard.

“We’ve put together a mix of music which ties all of these ideas together and represents some of our favourite music new and old, some of it directly influential on Hot Chip and some of it music we have discovered and loved, been surprised by and connected to,” Taylor explains. “There are three new songs of ours which we’re really proud of, and which I think connect naturally with the nocturnal world the compilation speaks of, and a cover of ‘Candy Says’ which is one of the first songs the very early version of Hot Chip played when we were still at school.”
