Hot Chip Teams Up With Bernard Sumner for Converse-Sponsored “I Didn’t Know What Love Was”

Hot Chip and New Order/Joy Division alumnus Bernard Sumner join forces for the electro-inspired and Converse-sponsored track and video I Didn’t Know What Love Was.

The video, directed by Andreas Nilsson, is a stop-motion clip that features various  “kind-of-likes,” and according to a press release, Nilsson’s aim was to “explore with body doubles and contrasting shapes and sizes a story that felt connected to the larger theme of connectivity.”  Also, keep an eye out for a cameo from New Order/Joy Division drummer Stephen Morris.
