The Chemical Brothers have announced the release of their tenth studio album, ‘For The Beautiful Feeling’, due for release this September.
The duo first teased the new release back in April, confirming a new album was on the way via a photo of a billboard reading: “New album fall 2023”, posted on their Instagram.
‘For That Beautiful Feeling’ is now confirmed as their tenth studio record, landing on Universal Music’s EMI on September 8, 2023. It comes four years after their last full-length release, 2019’s ‘No Geography’.
The album features 11 tracks, including a handful of recently released cuts including ‘No Reason’, ‘The Darkness That You Fear’, and ‘Live Again’.
Features on the next record come from US singer-songwriter Beck, and Heavenly Recordings singer Halo Maud, who appeared on the duo’s most recent release ‘Live Again’.
‘Live Again’ received a brand new music video yesterday, July 19, to go alongside the album announcement, directed by The Chemical Brothers’ long-term collaborators Dom & Nic.
“We’re really lucky to be still making films together after quite a few years,” the directors said. “‘Live Again’ is our tenth collaboration… the woozy, wonky analog sounds and the dream-like lyric suggested a hallucinogenic visual journey following a character caught in a loop of death and rebirth.”
The duo have also announced a string of UK arena dates starting in September at Cardiff’s Alexandra Head, followed by dates in Glasgow, Manchester, Leeds, Dublin, Birmingham and London.
