Hot Chip's 'Why Make Sense?' album is out this week. The album features the acclaimed singles "Huarache Lights" and "Need You Now." Watch the videos below.

The new album was recorded in Oxfordshire and London and produced by Hot Chip with Mark Ralph and mixed by the band, David Wrench (FKA Twigs, Caribou) and Jimmy Douglass (Timbaland, Aaliyah). The album features guest appearances from De La Soul’s Posdnuos and Scritti Politti’s Green Gartside ("Love Is The Future"), as well as live instrumentation and backing vocals from touring band members Sarah Jones and Rob Smaughton.

Why Make Sense? is available on all standard formats as well as a special edition available for a limited time only from Domino Mart, featuring a bonus EP, Separate EP, with 4 new tracks recorded during the album sessions. Listen to Burning Up from the Seperate EP below. Due to a unique and bespoke printing technique which has never been used before, the new album Why Make Sense? is available in one of 501 different colours making every cover unique.
