The Chemical Brothers have announced their 10th studio album.

The follow-up to 2019's 'No Geography' is called 'For That Beautiful Feeling' and will arrive on September 8.

Recorded at the dance titan's own studio near England's South Coast, it'll include the previously shared singles The Darkness That You Fear, No Reason, and Live Again with Halo Maud, which now comes with a video directed by longtime collaborators Dom & Nic, who said:

"Working with The Chemical Brothers is a dream for any video director. We’re really lucky to be still making films together after quite a few years. The Chems just keep smashing it with great tracks that demand videos that live up to the music and hopefully add something extra to the whole experience.

"Live Again is our tenth collaboration… the woozy, wonky analogue sounds and the dream like lyric suggested a hallucinogenic visual journey following a character caught in a loop of death and rebirth. The idea inspired us to use the new Arri XR virtual production stage and its cutting edge technology in a way that had never previously been done. This is an idea that could not really have been achieved with traditional filmmaking techniques.

"We created virtual CGI worlds and used long unbroken camera takes, without edits, moving between those different worlds seamlessly with our hero character. Making and editing the video, we were showered with the generosity of such a strong and huge team of immensely talented companies and individuals that helped us to make this film happen because they love working with The Chemical Brothers. Without their time, talents and generosity, a film like this could never make it out of heads and onto a screen."

The duo, Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons, will head out for a UK and Ireland tour in the autumn, following a number of summer festivals, including Wilderness in Oxfordshire in August. They'll also play a huge show at Alexandra Head in Cardiff Bay in September as part of The Bay Series.

The pair will release their first book, Paused In Cosmic Reflection, on October 26 via White Rabbit. Head here for details.
