I must be the only one here who doesn't think the extended version is better than the regular one. Don't get me wrong, I really like it! After all it's longer and has some new elements but, in my opinion, that long intro made the track lose a little of its energy. 
I feel like this track was really meant to be a perfect pop song, so the 4:43 album version is perfect for me.
Just get yourself high.


Skipping will be released on 7" with a different design cover for "War Child Presents Secret 7"" – a collection of seven songs by seven musicians on 700 records with each featuring unique artwork with all records set to be exhibited and free to view at NOW Gallery from March 2 to 17, 2024.

The concept of the charity initiative, which initially ran from 2012-2021, takes seven tracks by seven musicians, pressing each one to seven inch vinyl 100 times, creating 700 records.

The sleeves for each are then designed by 700 creatives, ranging from renowned artists to newcomers. All sleeves will then be available to purchase via auction after the exhibition. However, the designer's identity is only revealed after the record is sold.


1. Aurora – 'A Different Kind of Human'
2. Celeste – 'Stop This Flame'
3. Hozier – 'Swan Upon Leda'
4. Siouxsie & The Banshees – 'Lullaby'
5. Paul McCartney – 'Pipes of Peace'
6. The Chemical Brothers feat. Beck – 'Skipping Like A Stone'
7. The Specials – 'We Sell Hope'

This is great! Why does it freakin' stop at 3:05! There must be a longer version coming, right?

F me, this is so fucking good! What an emotional rollercoaster! This is getting me all pumped up. Especially at 4:30, when Beck and the piano come in. What an effing ride. It's not that often that remixes for the Bros are that good.

Also, with this slightly more isolated version of Beck's vocal, can we at least agree that Mr Hansen could have annunciated the 'SHA' part of 'Shadow of love' a little more clearly? It still sounds very, very much like he's starting to sing the word "center". Dancing in the cendow of love.
Yeah, right?! So hard to hear shadow instead of center with his sharp pronouncing of "s".

I know, right? For me this is the best rework of a Chems song since 2manydjs HBHG!
