Chemical Brothers / Surrender 20th anniversary reissue

The Chemical Brothers are set to release expanded versions of their album 1999 album Surrender, across a number of formats, this autumn.

Surrender was the duo’s third album and their second to reach number one. It featured the singles ‘Hey Boy Hey Girl’, ‘Let Forever Be’, ‘Out of Control’ and ‘Music: Response’, as well as a host of top drawer guests such as Noel Gallagher, Bernard Sumner, Bobby Gillespie, Hope Sandoval and Mercury Rev’s Jonathan Donahue.

It’s the first time the Chems have issued a deluxe edition of any of their catalogue, having recently reissued it all on vinyl a couple of years ago.

The 20th anniversary deluxe comes in a number of formats. A 3CD+DVD box set features the original 1999 album with previously unreleased ‘Secret Psychedelic Mixes’ of Surrender album tracks as well as a selection of B-sides and remixes from the period and a DVD of restored promo videos and film of their legendary Glastonbury 2000 performance. This set comes with a 28-page book with new essay by John Savage and four prints by original sleeve artist Kate Gibb.

The 4LP vinyl edition includes the album, the Secret Psychedelic Mixes and a cut down selection from the remixes/B-sides disc and (perhaps surprisingly) it includes the DVD.

There’s also a 2CD deluxe which pairs the album with the remixes/B-sides CD from the four-disc box.

The Chemical Brothers are currently engaged in a series of dates around the world’s festivals this summer, in support of their latest album No Geography, and play UK dates later this year, having just added their biggest show to date at The O2 in November.

Surrender will be released on 22 November 2019 (previously 18 October).

    i’ve ordered this from amazon, although i think it’s overpriced for 3cds and a dvd for £39.99, but i just realised the amazon product doesn’t include the 10″ vinyl element containing Electronic Battle Weapons 3&4?, is this just available through universals online store?

  2. negative1 says:

    its too bad they left off a lot of mixes,
    they could have easily been more comprehensive.

    that said, glad theres some exclusive tracks on here.

    will end up getting it used or on sale eventually anyways.

    later

    Ooops!
    “Jon” Savage …. quick before she notices!!!!

  4. Ben says:

    I was at Glastonbury 2000 and I seem to remember the performance was renowned for being underwhelming. Not legendary for the right reasons at all. Great album mind.

  5. deceased says:

    I do wish Bands wouldn’t start in the middle of their albums with a reissue campaign but i’m pleased they’re finally doing some reissue stuff, i’m hoping the main album tracks are presented unmixed so we finally get full length versions of the tracks that normally segue into each other but i’m not holding my breath.

    Also find it weird they’ve missed out the Extended HBHG unless that turns out to be The Secret Psychedelic Mix, I am intrigued to find out what they are…

    As many others have pointed out, it’ll be a crying shame if they don’t go backwards & reissue Exit Planet Dust & Dig Your Own Hole in this fashion…would love to see all the early Dust Brothers 12″s as a Bonus CD to Exit Planet Dust…

  6. Kauwgompie says:

    Weird that they start their album reissue campaign -if you can call it that- with Surrender. Exit Planet Dust and Dig Your Own Hole are arguably better albums. Not that surrender is a bad album. I will get this for sure.
    Pricing in SDE land remains weird. I picked up Hootie’s Cracked Rear View reissue for $20 on Amazon thru a pre-order. That was a 3cd+DVD (w a surround mix). This is a 3CD + DVD as well, there is no surround mix and it is $50.

  7. Jason w says:

    Also available if you order from the Chem’s store is Electronic Battle Weapon 3 + 4 as a 10″. It’s available bundled with either 4lp+dvd or 3cd+DVD.

  8. DW says:

    “Curated by” is an interesting way to say they left out a bunch of tracks.

  9. slapshot says:

    For around $50, will probably pick this up. If they do a similar box for Dig Your Own Hole, I’m there at any price. Start to finish, one of the greatest albums ever recorded.

  10. Peter Muscutt says:

    Agree with the suggestion for the deluxe editions for the first two albums…as much as I like the Chems, I felt they began going downhill after those with too many guest vocalists. I do like the Electronic Battle Weapon mixes though…! Kind of tempted by this deluxe set hit would’ve snapped up the first two LPs like a shot if they’d come out!

  11. Sid Ceaser says:

    Not to give Surrender any less attention, but I’d LOVE to see a SDE of “Exit Planet Dust” I love that album, and it’s my far and away favorite by the Chems.

  12. michael59 says:

    i have the 2CD australian edition which includes an ‘extended version’, running 6:04 minutes. strange that this mix is not included on these deluxe editions…?

  13. Tony says:

    Nice to see the DVD popped into the vinyl

  14. Elliot says:

    Surrender was the first album I bought, it still sounds great today.

    I’m not sure if I’ll get this as I have the original album and b-sides already. The Secret Psychedelic Mixes sound interesting though. It’s a shame the radio edit versions of the singles were left out although you can track down the promos fairly easily.

    I’d like to see a 25th anniversary box set for Exit Planet Dust and deluxe edition for Dig Your Own Hole too but this is a good start.

  15. David says:

    Does anyone know if Hope Sandoval might feature on any of the extra tracks/remixes? This would be my only interest in it. I can see that there’s no other version of Asleep From Day but I thought that maybe they recorded other tracks that might appear here

  16. Gary Russell says:

    How odd to miss off the main HBHG 12″ mix. I kinda get missing off the second Futureshock mix of MR, but omitting HBHG’s 12″ is just weird…
