The Chemical Brothers are releasing a special, limited edition 12-inch exclusively for Record Store Day 2020, featuring two tracks never previously released on vinyl.
The first – “Surrender To Love” – an eleven minute long, deeply psychedelic trip through the heart of Surrender at the hands of pioneering Australian duo The Avalanches. Exclusive to this 12” release, “Surrender To Love” features snatches of tracks from the album (including ‘Dream On’, ‘Setting Sun’ and ‘Out of Control’) alongside samples from archival interviews with the band.The effect is a fully immersive audio experience that reimagines Surrender in the style of The Avalanches’ highly acclaimed 2000 debut album Since I Left You.
On the flip, meanwhile, is The Avalanches mix of “Out of Control.” This mix was edited from the longer “Surrender To Love” track and previously released digitally in 2019.
The artwork for this Record Store Day 2020 release is a brand new screen print of the original “Out Of Control” single art created by original Surrender artwork designer Kate Gibb. This limited edition Chemical Brothers release will be available exclusively in independent record stores as part of Record Store Day on Saturday, August 29.
This exclusive release following the recent launch of London Design Museum Exhibition Electronic: From Kraftwerk To The Chemical Brothers, the pioneering duo’s sold out 2019 UK arena tour, the release of their double Grammy winning album No Geography and the 20th Anniversary of their landmark 1999 album Surrender.
The Avalanches and the International Space Orchestra also recently teamed up to create an epic collaborative video for “Wherever You Go” feat. Jamie xx, Neneh Cherry and CLYPSO. Filmed live during lockdown, the visual features musical contributions from scientists, astronauts, and engineers from NASA and SETI. The Avalanches’ Robbie Chater and Tony DiBlasi, meanwhile, also make their first-ever appearance in a music video.
