The Chemical Brothers Link With Beck On ‘Skipping Like A Stone’

It leads in to the duo's new album...

The Chemical Brothers team up with Beck on new single ‘Skipping Like A Stone’.

The new single is out now, and it’s the second pairing between these two illustrious parties, following 2015 track ‘Wide Open’.

‘Skipping Like A Stone’ is the perfect union of the Chemical Brothers rave prowess and Beck’s hallucinogenic vocals, a kind of psychedelic translucence that bursts into vivid life. There’s a sense of live performance in the songwriting, with the Chems flexing muscles honed across 25 years of festival-smashing sets.

Out now, it comes ahead of a busy Autumn. The Chemical Brothers will release new album ‘For That Beautiful Feeling’ on September 8th, before completing a full UK tour in November.

New book Paused In Reflection offers a career-spanning retrospective, penned by journalist Robin Turner. In the tome, Beck comments on his creative relationship with the Chemical Brothers:

 “The Chemical Brothers have a great predilection for exploration. Their records always seem to take you to different places. They kind of sit in an unusual place between different eras of electronic music and DJ culture. Its like they have one foot in multiple decades at the same time in a way that is utterly unique among their peers. They are rare in that they are always making stuff year in year out and amassing such a rich and impressive body of work.”
