Published Dec 01, 2014It's been nearly half a decade since the Chemical Brothers released their last LP, 2010's Further. While the electronic legends have kept somewhat busy since, recording an Olympic theme and releasing their concert film Don't Look, they haven't discussed a new album until now.
The new lineup for Barcelona's Sónar festival bills the Chemical Brothers as its headliner. The duo are set to debut a new live show, which is directly tied to their forthcoming new album. The live show will also feature Adam Smith, who directed Don't Think.
Speaking with Sónar organizers [via Resident Advisor], the band's Tom Rowlands offered some brief information on the new release.
"The most important feature of the album is that it connects with us emotionally in some way," he said. "We hope for finding a new way to make you feel. We dream of new sounds and different frames. We have worked with some guest singers but mostly the album is pure Chemical Brothers."
Sónar runs from June 18 to 20, so expect to find out more about the Chemical Brothers' next LP before then.
