Groundbreaking electronic musicians The Chemical Brothers have just announced the availability of an iTunes pass for its upcoming album, “Further” (out June 22nd in US) for fans in the US and Canada. The iTunes Pass will be the first to include the distinctive visuals fans usually only experience at a live Chemical Brothers’ show. Fans who purchase The Chemical Brothers iTunes Pass, beginning today, will receive an instant download featuring an uninterrupted 51-minute audio/visual experience of the full album. Other goodies include:
- On June 15, fans will automatically receive a 20 minute “Making Of” feature that goes behind the scenes revealing how the groundbreaking visuals for this album were made.
- On the album’s official street date of June 22 fans will receive the iTunes LP featuring the entire 8-track album in audio form including an additional exclusive audio track “Don’t Think” as well as the album’s 8 videos that can be viewed individually.
- This special iTunes LP format also includes an art image gallery as well as an extensive photo gallery of how the visuals were shot and created.
- Finally, on June 29, fans will receive yet another bonus – the exclusive track “Pourquoi.”
“Further” is the band’s first proper partnership with long-time visuals collaborators Adam Smith and Marcus Lyall. Now a respected TV and film director, Adam – aka Flat Nose George – has been responsible for creating the visual backdrop for every Chemical Brothers gig since their live debut in 1994. Visuals for Further have been created to correspond with each track on the album and have been planned during the recording of the record.
In addition to the digital album and iTunes pass, Further will also be available as a deluxe edition CD/DVD (including the 8 films plus a ‘making of’ video), a standard audio CD and as a double vinyl LP.
