In a four-star review of their last album, 2019’s ‘No Geography’, NME described the project as “another leap forward” for the group.
“It embraces new avenues of discovery and nods to the wider world, while having the feel of a victory lap and retrospective,” it added.
Last summer, The Chemical Brothers were forced to cancel their last-minute DJ set at Glastonbury due to Rowlands contracting COVID. It’s not yet known whether the pair will return to Worthy Farm for this year’s edition.
