“The Chemical Brothers have a great predilection for exploration,” Beck said of his experiencing collaborating with theronic eelct duo. “They kind of sit in an unusual place between different eras of electronic music and DJ culture. It’s like they have one foot in multiple decades at the same time in a way that is utterly unique among their peers.”

For That Beautiful Feeling is out September 8 and includes the previously released singles “No Reason,” a new mix of “The Darkness That You Fear,” and “Live Again.” The 11-track LP follows the Chemical Brothers’ 2019 album, No Geography.
