barney's shadow

A little more than a month ago, Converse UK released a fresh collaboration between New Order‘s Bernard Sumner, Hot Chip and Hot City entitled “Didn’t Know What Love Was”.

They promised a video to go along with the old school synth pop jam, and today our friends at Slicing Up Eyeballs dug it up on YouTube.

The clip features Bernard and his shadow, Alexis Taylor and Joe Goddard of Hot Chip and their doppelgangers, plenty of stop motion effects, and a cameo from New Order drummer Stephen Morris:

To download the track free, hear alternate takes and watch short films about each of the artists, check out the Converse Music Blog.

Somewhere in an alternate universe, this song is a #1 hit. I want to go to there.

    haha no shit about alt universe…. I like how it takes collabo's these days to justify… Hot Chip & Barney creating better stuff than anything N.O. could create currently. Or what about that Crystal Castles song feat: Robert Smith??JK
