The Chemical Brothers have released a new, behind the scenes video showing how the extraordinary video for ‘We’ve Got To Try’ was made. See it first on NME below.
The song is currently being used as the soundtrack to the Formula 1 Season and it features on their acclaimed new album, ‘No Geography‘ which was released last Friday (April 12).
The original video, directed by Ninian Doff, told “a tale of heroic canine endeavour” and featured an abandoned dog, Shadow, who was “plucked from the street” before eventually taking the seat in a Formula One car.
Now, Doff has opened up more about the making of the video, revealing that Shadow was an “incredible rescue dog” who had in fact “flown an aeroplane in real life.” You can hear Doff talking more about Shadow and his skills here:
Reviewing The Chemical Brothers’ new album, NME wrote: “‘No Geography’ is another leap forward for the pair – it embraces new avenues of discovery and nods to the wider world, while having the feel of a victory lap and retrospective.
“…Similarly, this album’s previously released singles ‘Got To Keep On’ and ‘Mad As Hell’ reach the same euphoric heights of club-smashers ‘Hey Boy, Hey Girl’ and ‘Galvanise’, though take more adventurous journeys to get there.”
