Yes, really...

Hudson Mohawke is soundtracking Joe Biden's new Presidential advert.

It's an election year in the United States, and music will play a key role in the race towards the White House.

Donald Trump has made enemies in the music community, with everyone from the Rolling Stones to R.E.M. and the family of Tom Petty threatening to sue him for using their songs at rallies.

Joe Biden seems to have an easier ride of it, with Hudson Mohawke's 'Chimes' appearing in his latest advert.

It's a neat move - in truth, we doubt 'Chimes' would be used in the more staid, mainstream brand of UK politicking.

Check it out below.

Hudson Mohawke has enjoyed a busy 2020, releasing three full length drops of new and unheard material on Bandcamp.
