The Chemical Brothers have announce that their tenth studio album is to be released via EMI on September 8th 2023.
For That Beautiful Feeling features recent single ‘Live Again’ with Halo Maud and will see the return of collaborator Beck, along with previous singles ‘No Reason’ and ‘The Darkness That You Fear’.
A video for ‘Live Again’, directed by close collaborators Dom & Nic (Wide Open, Hey Boy Hey Girl) is now out to watch, starring Josipa Kukor.
“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 idea inspired us to use the new Arri XR virtual production stage and its cutting edge technology in a way that had never previously been done.
This is an idea that could not really have been achieved with traditional filmmaking techniques. We created virtual CGI worlds and used long unbroken camera takes, without edits, moving between those different worlds seamlessly with our hero character. ”Dom & Nic
