The Chemical Brothers have been teasing their ninth studio album No Geography for the past five months. We’ve heard the comeback sounds of first single “Free Yourself” and got livid with its follow-up “MAH”. Now, they’re back with “Got to Keep On”.
Fueled by seasonal bells and staccato percussion, “Got to Keep On” proves three time’s the charm, grooving with an incandescent glow that should recall those balmy nights at the arcades circa 1992. It’s neon distilled into pure adrenalized electronica.
Update — Wednesday, February 6th: The Chemical Brothers have shared a new music video for “Got to Keep On”, described as a “surrealist version of Soul Train.” It was directed by renowned filmmakers Michel Gondry (Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, The Science of Sleep) and Olivier Gondry. Michel previously helmed Chemical Brothers’ past clips for “Let Forever Be”, “Star Guitar”, and more, while Olivier has handled visuals for Daft Punk and Hot Hot Heat.
What’s more, we finally have an album cover, a tracklist, and, yes, a goddamn release date for No Geography. Due out April 12th via Astralwerks, the album is currently available for pre-order, and those who grab it now get all three tracks immediately.
Peep the cover art and tracklist below. No Geography marks the follow-up to 2015’s Born in the Echoes.
