Really beautiful song! I really liked the arrangement of the electric guitar... it may be the Vox that Eddy gave Tom for his birthday haha

  • Maybe I'll find a friend to spend the weekend
Just heard it, really love it.
It's exacly that type of song, that we all need in those times.
As the person with depression and anxiety, the lyrics really pierce my heart, and it's doubled by that love statement <3

Trying not to cry
Beautiful song.

It's almost like 3 days too early Bday Gift <3
I'm MAD AS HELL!

What a delightful song, it fits well with other NG-Era music  :)
It's bright and upbeat, a true treat in these times!

What a delightful song, it fits well with other NG-Era music  :)

It couldn't feel more different to MAH though.
How to describe it to someoe who hasn't heard it? Light, optimistic, quirky electro-pop, perhaps.

I like it but I don't love it. It doesn't feel like an EBW in the sense that it's not quite clubby enough. I would expect it to feature in their forthcoming gigs (if they go ahead) but I'm not sure it would become an indispensible part of the live set in the long run.

Oh also, I think I like the edit as much as, if not more than the 6 minute version. My attention begins to wander a bit during the longer version. It doesn't feel like an epic journey (Escape Velocity) or a big groove (CHEMICAL) so I'm not sure that it needs to be long/extended. Four minutes might just be enough.

Nice to have new Chems though. The music fits quite well with the closing moments of the Apple video with it's sunny spring vista (not that I'm an Apple fanboy). I wouldn't be surprised if this tune ends up on some other upbeat footage/adverts at some point.
DON'T. LOOK. DOWN.

It's the perfect song for right now.  The lyrics are poetry.  It makes me long to be in a field of people who are all glowing, screaming this back at the boys. When it happens, I'll cry.

Brilliant tune, what the worlds needs right now: Chemicals & uplifting vibes ...
Looking forward to the b-side of the RSD 12" - Remix? Extended? EBW? Another new banger?

  • Beth Orton played live at my house!
after a couple of listens...

This should've been the last track to the No Geography album!

Otherwise the track is very good! Trying to figure out that robo singing at the end (Tom perhaps?)

That sample though....just magical, and a perfect fit for such a track.

I get some reflections from the Surrender album for some reason about this track




This is up there. Like, Star Guitar up there.

I’m really impressed.

It’s a perfect anthem for a dreamer, like myself. The way I hear this song is the way how I feel when I get caught up in the euphoric parts of daydreaming. With really no place to go for the last year+,  the only place I could escape was in dreams. So to put it bluntly, I’ve been dreaming quite a bit lately.

Thanks Tom and Ed for such a marvelous track.

To the forum:

The darkness that you fear will disappear,  hope to continue to see all the colors with you!

  • Got Glint is not Encore material!
Love it!!!!
Definitely think this is Live material, maybe something to play between Saturate and No Geography (or better yet a replacement of NG as much as I like it live, theres no difference other than the train bell at the beginning)

  • feeling just fine on a new forum!
If this is our first missive from Chem10 it’s a very promising one, if it’s our requisite corporate loosie for the No Geography era then Record Store Day feels like a pretty noble cause to devote it to - also upon first full listen it’s just a great track, pretty high-ranking even, playing to several Chems strengths at once and benefiting a weirdly large amount from their recent feedback loop with The Avalanches. Can’t wait to see which hyperexpressive avant-garde theater person or out-of-nowhere blockbuster film star Smith & Lyall get to lipsync to it on the summer tour visuals.
I need the Miguel version of the album

  • This is my kind of music
This new track is great, and hopefully a sign of more to come!

I did notice something; their profile pictures are different now. You can see it most clearly on the YouTube page and the Spotify playlist "This Is The Chemical Brothers".


Looks like a variation of this image:
And I reserve (What?) the right to live (Where?)
my life this way (How?) I couldn't give a
damn when I (What?) hear people say (Who?)
I'll pay the price that others pay

Thanks, Krabber. Well, if that's not the cherry on top, or what!?
