The Chemical Brothers have released a brand new track, ‘Live Again’, and shared details about their first-ever book due for release this October.

‘Live Again’ follows a recent string of releases from the duo, including ‘No Reason’ and ‘All Of A Sudden’ which landed earlier this year and were later remixed by O’Flynn and Ewan McVicar.

The track features vocals from French singer-songwriter Halo Maud, and is due to appear on the pair’s forthcoming album later this year.

Their 10th studio record comes some four years after their last album, 2019’s ‘No Geography’, confirmed in April via a photo of a billboard posted on the pair’s Instagram page reading: ‘The Chemical Brothers new album fall 2023’.

Alongside the release of their latest track, The Chemical Brothers also announced their first-ever official book due to land on October 28 via White Rabbit titled Paused in Cosmic Reflection.

The book is described as the ‘definitive story of The Chemical Brothers’ retrospectively spanning their 30-year career, told by both the duo and collaborators over the years.

Paused in Cosmic Reflection also includes the voices of other artists, stage designers, and friends of the duo, collating hundreds of hours of interviews. The book also stretches back to the very beginning of their music career in Manchester, and documents their live show through the years.

Features in the book also include Noel Gallagher, Beck, Erol Alkan, and more, with illustrations, photography, and design work and posters – some of which have never been seen before.
