Following the release of their latest album, No Geography, big beat innovators The Chemical Brothers have released a new music video for the album’s opening track, “Eve of Destruction.” On top of the newly released visual, the duo, consisting of Ed Simons and Tom Rowlands, has also announced a 20th-anniversary deluxe reissue for their seminal 1999 project, Surrender.
The music video for the relentlessly groovy single helps in transmitting the jacking house chorus, with Norwegian singer Aurora featured in a Speed Racer-esque outfit while belting out her vocals. The Japanese retrofuturistic influence of the video maintains itself alongside featured Tokyo-based rapper Nene, with weirdly off-kilter characters paired alongside animated effects.
The deluxe reissue for Surrender’s forthcoming 20th anniversary has also been announced, which will reportedly feature a variety of unreleased “Secret Psychedelic Mixes” the album’s various tracks, as well as a DVD containing promo video and film of the duo’s legendary Glastonbury 2000 performance. The first of the pre-ordered copies will receive an extremely limited pressing of “Electronic Battle Weapon 3 & 4” on specially-colored 10” vinyl. The overall package will include four 12” vinyls, three CDs, and one DVD.
Full package and pre-order details will be announced shortly. For now, you can catch the visual for “Eve of Destruction” above.
For more music news, Coachella just announced the festival’s 2020 dates and advance sale info.
