Hot off the press, Chemical Brothers join forces with pop aficionados Miguel and Lorde on their new track ‘This Is Not A Game’ given the light of radio air time last night (October 20th) by Zane Lowe on his Radio 1 show.
Having curation duties for the ‘Hunger Games’ soundtrack, Lorde explicitly requested for The Chemical Brothers to produce while she and Miguel took control of the vocals. Conforming with the films ominous theme, The Chemical Brothers have created an underlying dark theme as the foundations for the two singers to work with to great effect.
Miguel takes hold of the track almost solely with Lorde adding layers to the track, which complements the desired dark soul of the track. Certainly something different from artists involved, showing how good production and careful cameo appearances can go a long way.
