On March 16, legendary duo Karl Hyde and Rick Smith will release their first album as Underworld in almost six years. Barbara, Barbara, we face a shining future will arrive in time for the pair to step up at Coachella, where they’re playing in live mode over two back-to-back weekends in Indio.
If the first taste of what Hyde and Smith have up their sleeve is any indication, that new album should have us very excited. This week Underworld delivered a three minute cut of I Exhale, the first single from Barbara, Barbara, and it doesn’t disappoint. The album version of the track stretches over eight minutes and can be picked up now on iTunes.
It’s not just Coachella the Brits have on their radar – Underworld have also locked in shows around the UK and Europe throughout the first half of 2016. They’re still wide open, however, across the weekend of July 22-24 – the dates Splendour in the Grass just announced they’ll return for in 2016. We’ll leave you to contemplate that while you put I Exhale on repeat below.
