THE CHEMICAL BROTHERS NEW SINGLE “ANOTHER WORLD” TO BE RELEASED DIGITALLY AUGUST 17TH/ 12” VINYL SEPTEMBER 28TH
With their latest album Further, released earlier this summer, the much revered dance duo of Ed Simons and Tom Rowlands went back to basics, shaking free big name guest vocalists and instead releasing a studied, concise 8 song opus which wound together proved to be one of their most cohesive and compelling records yet.
Their new single “Another World”, to be released on August 17th via Astralwerks, shows just how this stripped down approach works so well; it’s a shimmering, pulsating, lolloping slice of electronica, one which builds, slowly and steadily, from a simple piano break, before growing to become an encompassing, dreamily propulsive epic. It’s simple yet devastatingly effective, particularly as it progresses towards its euphoric climax – and another potent reminder of just why The Chemical Brothers are still, after all these years, in a league of their own.
The single release boasts a couple of never before commercially released remixes of two more tracks from The Chemical Brothers’ Further album: the much in-demand Boys Noize and Lindstrom & Prin Thomas remixes of “Swoon” and the Popof remix of “Horsepower” – which will be available on 12″ vinyl and digital downloads.
