We’re not sure when the relationship between footwear and music began, but we suspect as soon as a caveman first banged out a rhythm someone signed him up to promote their shoes. Now two of Hot Chip – Alexis Taylor and Joe Goddard if you’re a big enough fan to tell which geek is which – have teamed up with New Order man Bernard Sumner to release a free track in conjunction with Converse. And as the last Doctor Who wore them, we’re sure this team up has total nerd synergy. Anyway, it’s called ‘I didn’t know what love was’ and is available for free from the ConverseBlog.com This track follows a collaboration by part of Vampire Weekend with Kid Cudi and Best Coast, and next year we’ll get Graham Coxon and Paloma Faith. So: great music potential.
