The Chemical Brothers’ Tom Rowlands commented: “‘The Darkness That You Fear’ is a hopeful piece of music. When we found the combination of the different voices worked set to the flow of the music, it made us feel optimistic—like it was something we wanted to share.”
A limited edition 12” LP of ‘The Darkness That You Fear’ will be hitting record shops this coming Record Store Day on June 12.
Despite ongoing concerns of festival cancellation in the UK, those that are still set to go ahead include The Chemical Brothers headlining TRNSMT in Glasgow and Cheshire’s Creamfields.
The duo also recently contributed a closing installation at the London Design Museum, ‘Electronic - From Kraftwerk to Chemical Brothers’, which is the most popular exhibition ever held at the cultural building.
