Ahead of their massive shows with Liam Gallagher at Knebworth this weekend, Kasabian have dropped ’CHEMICALS’, the third track from their highly-anticipated new album The Alchemist’s Euphoria, out August 5th on Columbia Records.

A pulsating, guitar-driven anthem and the last track the band recorded for the album, ‘CHEMICALS’ is an encompassing pop moment written by Serge Pizzorno and produced by Serge and Fraser T Smith, with mixing from Spike Stent.

“It is me telling myself that it is going to be okay,” Serge said of the track. “It was me seeing myself in those few weeks when everything kicked off. It’s the future me saying to that person: ‘This is shit, but don’t worry, it will get better.’ So having a song about talking to yourself is universal, I think. We all have to find a way to deal with the complications, the mess and the mortality of life.”

Of the new album Serge adds: “One thing about this record I feel over the other ones, is it definitely feels like a body of work that belongs together. It was a beautiful moment in mastering hearing it as a piece. I think it really holds up in our seven albums….The Magnificent Seven”.
