The Chemical Brothers Enlist Beck for ‘Wide Open’
As we’ve previously learned, the Chemical Brothers’ upcoming album, Born in the Echoes, will include a track featuring Beck. That song, “Wide Open,” premiered yesterday (July 9) on Seattle’s KEXP. Take a listen on the radio station’s website.
Born in the Echoes is due out later this month on July 24 via Astralwerks. It follows the English electro duo’s 2010 LP, Further.
The Chemical Brothers have already shared four tracks from the upcoming album: “Sometimes I Feel So Deserted,” “Go,” “Under Neon Lights” and “EML Ritual.” The latter three feature Q-Tip, St. Vincent and Ali Love, respectively. That nearly rounds out all of the collaborations that will appear on Born in the Echoes, save for the title track for which the duo enlisted the help of Cate Le Bon.
The Chemical Brothers have already kicked off a tour in Europe, with dates scheduled through December. However, the band revealed that Ed Simon won’t appear on the tour with Tom Rowlands and instead will be replaced by longtime collaborator Adam Smith. Their U.S. stops include San Francisco; Pomona, Calif.; New York City; and Chicago. Get more details here.
