"Wide Open" is the newest single from The Chemical Brothers’ GRAMMY Nominated 2015 album, Born In The Echoes. The expansive track features vocals from Beck in his first new music after his GRAMMY win for Album Of The Year, and was warmly received as an unexpected but welcome departure for both parties.

Press and radio embraced the track early, with Stereogum saying "kind of a minimal electronic version of the Sea Change sound, or an entirely synth-driven Modern Guilt? Frankly, it doesn’t sound like a lot of other Beck songs, which is a hard thing to pull off at this point in history, and it’s not your average Chem Bros. track either. I like it a lot."

The official video for "Wide Open" will premiere in the coming weeks; the video was directed by Dom and Nic who have helmed previous videos for the band including Setting Sun, Hey Boy, Hey Girl, Midnight Madness and Block Rocking Beats.

A suite of remixes will also be released including interpretations from Joe Goddard, Kolsch and By The Light of the Moon.
