Update: “I Didn’t Know What Love Was” is now available here.
While the Kid Cudi/Best Coast/Rostam Batmanglij collaboration for Converse was a nice summer treat, the shoe company’s next offering is one for the ages. Via Gigwise.com, Alexis Taylor and Joe Goddard of Hot Chip have come together with New Order/Bad Lieutenant’s Bernard Sumner for a song entitled “I Didn’t Know What Love Was”. We don’t know what love is, but we have a pretty good idea of what amazing could be.
The track, one of two available for tomorrow for free download, are part of a campaign by the UK branch of Converse to celebrate British music. While not quite as initially eye-catching as the New Order-Hot Chip split, the second track will feature The Coral’s Bill Rider, Paloma Faith, and Graham Coxon.
The trio are also slated to have a music video for the track drop on November 5th, so stay tuned for that as well. In the meantime, head here tomorrow morning to get your grubby mitts on the track.
