Pioneering electronic music duo The Chemical Brothers have released a new, behind the scenes video showing how director Ninian Doff captured the extraordinary visuals for their track ‘We’ve Got To Try’. You can check it out below.
The song is currently being used as the soundtrack to the Formula 1 Season and it features on their acclaimed new album, No Geography which was released last Friday, 12 April.
The original video told “a tale of heroic canine endeavour” and featured an abandoned dog, Shadow, who was “plucked from the street” before eventually taking the seat in a Formula One car.
Now, the director has opened up more about the making it in this behind the scenes video, revealing that Shadow was an “incredible rescue dog” who had in fact “flown an aeroplane in real life.”
Ninian Doff previously crafted the group’s 2015 clip for ‘Sometimes I Feel So Deserted.’ The visual chronicles the “rags-to-riches” tale of an abandoned dog named “Girl” who after leaving the streets of London, embarks on a journey of self-discovery.
No Geography has already picked up a series of great reviews. The NME wrote: “No Geography is another leap forward for the pair – it embraces new avenues of discovery and nods to the wider world, while having the feel of a victory lap and retrospective.
“…Similarly, this album’s previously released singles ‘Got To Keep On’ and ‘Mad As Hell’ reach the same euphoric heights of club-smashers ‘Hey Boy, Hey Girl’ and ‘Galvanise’, though take more adventurous journeys to get there.”
As uDiscover Music previously reported, The Chemical Brothers also released a remix of the track titled ‘WGTT15000BPM F1 NEEEUM Mix’ to celebrate the beginning of the 2019 F1 season. According to a press release, to make the remix, the track was “broken down, re-engineered and accelerated to 15,000 beats per minute (BPM) to reflect the 15,000 beats per minute (BPM) that today’s hyper-complex F1 cars are capable of reaching.”
