Chemical Brothers to bring Block Rockin' Beats to the Biomes
Eden announcement coincides with release of stunning new Michel and Olivier Gondry-directed video
Electronic pioneers the Chemical Brothers have been confirmed for the Eden Sessions on Friday June 28.
The Chemical Brothers have had six consecutive No 1 UK studio albums with their next album No Geography set for release on April 12.
Also today, the band released a stunning video for their new single Got To Keep On, directed by Michel and Olivier Gondry, which can be viewed at https://TheChemicalBrothers.lnk.to/GOTTOKEEPONVIDEO.
Academy Award-winning Michel Gondry previously directed acclaimed videos for the Chemical Brothers’ singles Let Forever Be, Star Guitar and Go.
Got To Keep On is the third track taken from No Geography. It is an irresistible liquid disco number that has sat at the heart of the band’s live shows for the past year.
The second single from the record, MAH, was released at the start of January, following last September's Free Yourself, which was their first new release in three years.
The Chemical Brothers are one of the foremost proponents of the British dance music scene whose extensive back catalogue includes ubiquitous tracks such as Block Rockin' Beats, Hey Boy Hey Girl, Galvanize and Go.
They have worked with a star-studded list of collaborators and featured artists, including Noel Gallagher, Q-Tip, and the Flaming Lips.
They have won a BRIT Award, four Grammys, two Q Awards, an NME Award and an MTV Europe Music Award. Their albums Dig Your Own Hole and Surrender were both nominated for the prestigious Mercury Prize.
Rita Broe, Eden's marketing director, said: "We're very proud to be bringing the Chemical Brothers to the Eden Sessions. They are dance music royalty with an incredible body of work. Their powerful sound and stage show will be perfectly complimented by our otherworldly setting."
The Eden Sessions enter their 18th year in 2019 with Kylie Minogue (July 2 and 3 - both sold out) the only other artist confirmed for the season so far.
Last year’s epic line-up featured Gary Barlow, Massive Attack, A Beautiful Day Out, Ben Howard, Queens of the Stone Age, Jack Johnson and Björk. Star acts from previous years include Muse, Oasis, Lionel Richie and Sir Elton John.
Tickets to the Chemical Brothers Eden Session cost £50 plus £5 booking fee and are on sale to members of the Inside Track club from midday today (Wednesday February 6). Tickets go on general sale at 4pm on Tuesday February 12 on www.edensessions.com.
