The brothers are working it out. The Chemical Brothers have released another taste of their forthcoming new album with the new single ‘Got To Keep On’…
The news which broke last year that there was a brand new Chemical Brothers album in the pipeline for this year got me very excited. Especially as there was new music to go with the announcement in the form of ‘Free Yourself’ and ‘MAH’. Now, we have a new single which will also be released on the album out right now called ‘Go To Keep On’. The sound takes you right back to what you would expect to hear from a Chemical Brothers record.
Along with the new single, they have also given the new album a name, released the artwork for the cover and dropped the full tracklist featuring 10 tracks. The new album which will be released on the 12th April on CD and digital formats will be called ‘No Geography’. The inspiration and production of the new album may well explain why this is one artist album from the brothers you should get realy excited about.
“At some point during the recording of No Geography, Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons pushed the reset button. It began with the construction of a studio within a studio - a tiny makeshift room that housed the kind of kit they’d previously used to record the bulk of their first two albums; equipment that had sat gathering (freestyle) dust in Tom’s attic for the last twenty years. That experimental space offered a freedom and the chance to create music and tell their own story in a way they hadn’t done for years.
Wherever possible, things were done differently. Randomness and jagged edges were encouraged and songs were built around vocal samples; voices were wound tightly into music that Tom and Ed found themselves following wherever it led them. Snatches of dialogue from the late ’60s experimental Dial-A-Poem project were chosen that reflected the mood in the studio. Songs were road tested in front of audiences as part of the 2018 live set (which took in two shows at Alexandra Palace - the band’s biggest UK headline shows to date) and honed in regular DJ sets the world over.”
