Chemical Brothers Set to Release New Album ‘Further’ Out in June – Tracklist Announced

I’ve only had the pleasure of experience the “Loops of Fury” once in my life. I regret not traveling to catch them opening up for New Order en route to Coachella. The Chemical Brothers will be releasing their new album, “Further”, this June and they’ve released one track via BBC and they have finally released a tracklist to the new album. It’s going to be a great Summer!

“FURTHER”
THE NEW ALBUM RELEASED 7TH JUNE ON
FREESTYLE DUST / PARLOPHONE RECORDS
It starts with what sounds like an alien morse code transmission; Earth
bound signals bouncing off the side of orbiting space debris. Snatches of
voices found out in the ether cut through the machine fog, drifting across
burbling analogue equipment lovingly kept working long after supposed
sell-by date. By the time the click and thump of snare and bass drum
arrive, the sounds are all-encompassing, swirling around you with dizzying,
disorientating effect. Noises come untethered by constraints of volume,
seemingly leaping from the speakers with a life of their own. For a band
used to dealing in psychedelics, this time round The Chemical Brothers have
really pushed the proverbial envelope.
The Chemical Brothers release their seventh studio album, “Further”, in
June 2010. This album is the band’s first to be released with corresponding
films made specifically to match each of the 8 audio tracks.

5. horse power
6. swoon
7. k+d+b
8. wonders of the deep
Nearly three years on from the release of their fifth consecutive UK Number
1 “We Are The Night”, “Further” sees Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons explore the
boundless possibilities of their sound. Taking a trip through four decades
of electronic noise, Tom & Ed have taken the template set up with their
occasional “Electronic Battle Weapon” releases and allowed them to mutate
gloriously into an entire album. Voice samples and snatches of vocals are
woven through tracks to create a record that ebbs and flows like one of the
band’s legendary live sets. Here, West Coast power pop harmonies sit beside
German Motorik rhythms while Valentines-esque sonic manipulations plane
across the top of early house basslines. “Further” is the culmination of
nearly two decades of psychedelic exploration, an immersive collection that
finds The Chemical Brothers at their least-restrained and most-melodic best.
As well as an eight-track album, “Further” is the band’s first proper
partnership with long-time visuals collaborators Adam Smith and Marcus
Lyall. Now as respected TV and film director (recently having completed the
first episode of the forthcoming series of Doctor Who) Adam – aka Flat Nose
George – has been responsible for creating the visual backdrop for every
Chemical Brothers gig since their live debut in 1994. Visuals for “Further”
have been created to correspond with each track on the album and have been
planned during the recording of the record.
The band’s four shows running from the 20 – 23rd May at the Roundhouse
(which sold out in record time) and gigs at Sonar Festival and selected
festivals in Europe will see the band play the album and Smith and Lyall’s
new films in their entirety. These will only be seen in sequence at those
gigs. The Roundhouse shows will be the first chance to hear the album
anywhere. After the gigs, the films will feature on a special edition DVD
release and on iTunes LP.
