Directed by Ninian Doff (Pulse Films), the mastermind behind their video for  ‘Sometimes I Feel So Deserted’ in 2015, ‘We’ve Got To Try’ is accompanied by a gripping new video that tells a tale of heroic canine endeavour. An abandoned dog, ‘Girl’, is plucked from the street and in a classic rags-to-riches story embarks on an intrepid journey of self-discovery. Through sheer force of will, she rises through the ranks of motorsport, and much, much more... Watch the video here.

 

Welding together the iconic visuals The Chemical Brothers are known for with the determination and endurance at the heart of F1 Sport, the film celebrates the extraordinary drama that unfolds at the intersection of great ambition and apex technology.

 

Preceding today’s official release, The Chemicals Brothers yesterday launched a groundbreaking remix of ‘We’ve Got to Try’, transforming the brand-new track into the sound of an F1 car roaring past at high speed. ‘We’ve Got To Try’ was broken down, re-engineered and accelerated to 15,000 beats per minute (BPM) to reflect the 15,000 revs per minute (RPM) that today’s hyper-complex F1 cars are capable of reaching.  ‘WGTT15000BPM F1 NEEEUM MIX’ is the result of that experiment and amounts to the fastest remix of all time.  And at just 3 seconds long, ‘WGTT15000BPM F1 NEEEUM MIX’ will become the new global sonic identity for F1 moving forward.  As long-standing fans of the sport and having performed at F1 parties over the years, this collaboration continues the band’s incredible track record of innovation.

Today’s preview of a new album track follows alongside The Chemical Brothers’ current single ‘Got To Keep On’ which has already surpassed 6 million global streams and is itself accompanied by an extraordinary video directed by the Oscar winning Michel Gondry and his brother Olivier Gondry.

 

The Chemical Brothers have sold more than 12 million albums and six million singles worldwide. They have had six No. 1 albums in the U.K. and were the first electronic act ever to receive a GRAMMY, winning in the Best Rock Instrumental Performance category for ‘Block Rockin’ Beats’ – the first of their four GRAMMY wins.
