The Chemical Brothers have released a brand new track entitled Free Yourself. It’s a song which will be familiar to those who experienced the band’s spectacular new live show this Summer, where it has already proved to be a highlight of the electronic music pioneers’ set at festivals across Europe. You can hear the track below.
The track is the first new music from the band since they released their 6th consecutive UK number 1 record Born In The Echoes, released by Astralwerks to widespread critical acclaim in 2015. The record featured vocalists including Q-Tip, St Vincent and Beck, plus visual experimentation with the iconic director Michel Gondry and in virtual reality with Chris Milk.
Free Yourself has already been chosen by the BBC Radio 1’s Annie Mac’s as her ‘Hottest Record’ and its release comes ahead of two sold-out shows at London’s Alexandra Palace in October.
In June, the Chemical Brothers shared a previously unreleased cover of Tim Buckley’s ‘I Never Asked to Be Your Mountain’ with their frequent collaborator Beth Orton. Last year, they also shared the interactive VR experience of their 2015 St. Vincent song ‘Under Neon Lights’.
Since their 1995 debut the Manchester duo have become pioneers of the big beat genre alongside legends Fatboy Slim and The Prodigy. They’ve also had huge commercial success including scoring six UK No. 1 albums and much-acclaimed headlining slots at festivals across the UK and beyond, including their hometown’s Parklife Festival.
