Oddly there seem to be a few versions of this video floating around. Today there was a version that was 2:56 in length but here is an extended version released mid-June. The band released a visual accompaniment to the album and for whatever reason an edited version of that release is being associated with the track. This is the full version, same length as the album version.
After the greatness of the first track that came out and now this excellent new video I’m ready to hear the new album already. I haven’t been this excited for a Chems album in a long time. The album is called Further and is due out June 8 on Astralwerks. You can check out the gorgeous album cover here.
The Chemical Brothers have not been GREAT in quite a while. “Escape Velocity” is part “Teenage Wasteland” on uppers mixed with a bit of Come With Us era synths. Sort of reminds me a faster “Pioneer Skies” which was always one of my favorite Chem tracks.
