On July 17th, The Chemical Brothers will release their first album in five years, Born in the Echoes, via Astralwerks. The 11-track effort follows 2010’s Further and features guest appearances by St. VincentBeckQ-Tip, and Cate Le Bon. Already, we’ve heard “Sometimes I Feel So Deserted” and the Q-Tip featuring “Go”, but today, we finally receive their collaboration with the one and only Annie Clark, “Under Neon Lights”.

“We’re always looking to work with likeminded people who do something a bit different to us,” explains Tom Rowlands in a press release. “Annie is an amazing artist who was very up for experimenting.” No kidding. The track bubbles and bursts at a magnetic pace, pulsing with a rhythm that’s on par with the previous singles off the album. Towards the end, Clark intones, “Got no husband/ Got no wife/ All I want of you tonight…”
