The Chemical Brothers unleash new music in bizarre ‘MAH’ visual
British electronic duo The Chemical Brothers released a brand-new song on Monday entitled MAH. The rapidly pummelling track was paired with an outlandish video featuring visuals and live footage from one of their concerts in October.
MAH is the second taste of music from the duo’s ninth studio album, No Geography, which is scheduled to be released this spring.
The show was filmed in the U.K. at London’s Alexandra Palace. The pair played two sold-out shows at the legendary venue.
The music video was directed by Marcus Lyall, who also created the incredibly bizarre visuals along with English director Adam Smith.

The Chemical Brothers’ Ed Simons and Tom Rowlands each teased the release of MAH on the group’s official Instagram page for days prior to the actual premiere by posting a number of images counting down the days until its release.
Many fans were pleased to hear MAH was chosen to be the next single, as it had been introduced in their live sets during a 2018 world tour. It received a fantastic reception on the stage.
MAH is the first Chemical Brothers single in two months, following the release of the long-awaited Free Yourself.
