Marking the twentieth Anniversary of their 1999 classic album Surrender, The Chemical Brothers release deluxe versions as expanded 3CDs and 4LP box sets – each with a DVD, book and 4 art prints.
By the time Surrender arrived in shops in the summer of 1999, The Chemical Brothers had already created their own mythology. The single that preceded it - 'Hey Boy Hey Girl' - was built around a fiercely addictive mantra that was both a ballsy calling card for the record’s creators and readymade chant for the legions of hedonists consumed by a club scene that had finally gone global. Surrender though, offered the listener so much more than soundbites. It was truly the moment that everything around The Chemical Brothers went full colour, whether through Kate Gibb’s hallucinatory artwork or the wild and propulsive psychedelia of tracks like album centrepiece 'The Sunshine Underground'. Elsewhere, singular talents Bernard Sumner, Hope Sandoval, Jonathan Donahue and Noel Gallagher were filtered into the band’s sound, less like guest vocalists and more like moving parts of a bigger machine designed to make the listener… well… surrender. Surrender went on to win Album of the Year at the 1999 Q Awards, and The Chemical Brothers won Best Dance Act at the 2000 Brit Awards. One year on from release, they headlined the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury Festival, playing to the biggest crowd the festival had ever seen (this was prior to the fence going up when the festival had a massively exploded capacity).
The first Chemical Brothers album to receive the deluxe album treatment, Surrender: 20th Anniversary Expanded enhances the original eleven track album with two additional discs of rare and unreleased music and a DVD of remastered promos and footage filmed for the BBC live at Glastonbury Festival 2000 that hasn’t been seen since original broadcast. It also comes with a set of exclusive Kate Gibb prints of original sleeve artwork and an exclusive colour book featuring testimonials from key collaborators and guest musicians as well as new liner notes from Jon Savage, the band’s longtime visual collaborator Adam Smith and Alexis Petridis, who describes Surrender as ‘a snapshot of a moment in time that could’ve been released yesterday’.
