Alongside news of their debut book, The Chemical Brothers announce the brand new single, "Live Again".

"Live Again" features vocals from Halo Maud, and follows on the heels of the recently released single "No Reason", which is taken from the tenth Chemical Brothers album that’s due later this year. In addition to the new single, The Chemical Brothers have also announced details of their first official book - a career spanning retrospective of their thirty-year career.

Paused in Cosmic Reflection is the definitive story of The Chemical Brothers told in the voices of Tom Rowlands and Ed Simons and a host of studio collaborators, artists, stage show designers and friends.

Written with The Chemical Brothers' longtime press officer Robin Turner, Paused in Cosmic Reflection collates hundreds of hours of interviews into a kaleidoscopic history of the band and of the burgeoning electronic scene they grew up in.

It offers a unique view into the band’s history from their early years in Manchester through the making of a series of classic records, and the creation of their globally lauded live show, and features exclusive contributions from Noel Gallagher, Beck, Aurora, Beth Orton, Michel Gondry, Wayne Coyne, and many more.

"Live Again" is out now. The Chemical Brothers' debut book, Paused in Cosmic Reflection, is set for publication via White Rabbit on 26 October.
