Having supported The Chemical Brothers on their recent Australian tour, The Avalanches have produced a very special remix tribute to the 20th anniversary of the classic album Surrender. With ‘Out Of Control (The Avalanches Surrender To Love mix)’, the Melbourne duo take the track on a trip towards a West Coast sunset. Along the way, they somehow manage to tilt the claustrophobic electronic drive of the original off its axis, creating a pulsating drift of celestial house music in the process.
This new remix of ‘Out Of Control’ is an edit taken from a longer Surrender-inspired piece The Avalanches created that is due for release in the future.
The ‘Out Of Control (The Avalanches Surrender To Love mix)’ arrives accompanied by a brand new screen print from original Surrender artwork designer Kate Gibb using the original film from 1999. Kate has also helped to create a truly stunning visualiser for the track alongside graphic artist Jimmy Turrell. You can check it out below.
‘Out Of Control’ was originally the third single taken from Surrender and featured vocals by New Order’s Bernard Sumner and Primal Scream’s Bobby Gillespie. The deluxe reissue of Surrender – featuring hours of unreleased material and a blu-ray of the band’s huge Glastonbury 2000 Pyramid Stage headline – is out now.
The Avalanches last album – Wildflower – was released in 2016. This is the first remix they’ve done since 2013.
The Chemical Brothers are currently on their biggest ever UK tour. They played Birmingham Resorts World Arena last night (29 November) and play London’s O2 Arena tonight, 30th November. The pioneering electronic music duo have recently been nominated for three Grammy Awards – Best Dance Recording for ‘Got To Keep On’, Best Dance/Electronic Album for their current studio set, No Geography and Best Music Video for ‘We’ve Got To Try’.
Surrender is out now and can be bought here.
