Long-absent dance juggernaut Leftfield are to return with a new live album.

As previously recounted, Tourism is a 2xCD live document of their 2011 Australian tour. Neil Barnes and co. have now made lengthy clips of each track available to stream.

No half-baked new material here: ‘Africa Shox’, ‘Release The Pressure’, ‘Phat Planet’ et al all get an airing. On first impression, Tourism definitely isn’t one of those indispensable live documents: there seems to be very little that distinguishes these readings from the recorded originals, and it’s not an especially transportive listen. There is, however, some well-mixed crowd response, and Neil Barnes’ productions have stood the test of time pretty robustly.

Tourism is due out on Field Note on March 26.
