Chemical Brothers Return With ‘C-h-e-m-i-c-a-l’
The song can be purchased over at iTunes, but the Youtube widget embedded above contains a one-minute preview of the track. It begins with a shout-out to themselves and concludes with the phrase, "So let your body rock, rock."
Born in the Echoes was the electronic duo's first record since 2010's Further, and featured collaborations from Beck ("Wide Open"), St. Vincent ("Under Neon Lights") and Q-Tip of A Tribe Called Quest ("Sometimes I Feel So Deserted"). A year prior to its release, they also contributed "This Is Not a Game" to the soundtrack of The Hunger Games: Mockingjay — Part 1, on which Lorde, who curated the film's music, added vocals.
While the Chemical Brothers have been looking forward musically, they're also re-visiting their past. On Dec. 9, they will put out their first seven albums (all except Born in the Echoes) on colored vinyl, with only 1,000 hand-numbered copies available. Two weeks later, all eight of their records will be re-issued on standard black vinyl. For pre-order information and a list of the independent retailers where they will be sold, visit the Chemical Brothers' website.
The group are spending November doing select dates at festivals in Israel, the United Arab Emirates and Hong Kong. They'll return to the U.K. in December for four shows. Complete information can be found at the group's website.
