The Chemical Brothers have dropped brand new track ‘The Darkness That You Fear’, their first new music since their 2019 LP ‘No Geography’.
The English electronic duo first teased the psychedelic track on their social media channels, posting a short colourful clip alongside the official release date.
The song is accompanied by an official music video created by Bristol-based director Ruffmercy, who has also worked with the likes of Thom Yorke, Run The Jewels and DJ Shadow.
The Chemical Brothers’ Tom Rowlands commented, “The Darkness That You Fear is a hopeful piece of music. When we found the combination of the different voices worked set to the flow of the music it made us feel optimistic, like it was something we wanted to share.”
