The 25-minute download features five different pieces and is "is probably a bit more chilled than the other two" that have already been unveiled, group member Karl Hyde told Billboard.com in December.
On July 10, the group will release "The Misterons Mix," which condenses the three Riverrun downloads into a 30-minute mix. The album will be available for free download to those who purchased the earlier downloads via UnderworldLive.com.
In the fall, V2 will release Underworld's soundtrack for the Anthony Minghella film "Breaking & Entering," which premieres Oct. 6 in U.S. theaters. "We've been improvising in Abbey Road in a big orchestral studio, using electronics and traditional acoustic instruments from all over the world," Hyde said previously of the soundtrack. "It has opened all of our heads."
Finally, the group is also moving forward on its first studio album since 2002's "A Hundred Days Off," and is planning to release new music via a host of 12-inch vinyl singles this summer. Remixes are already lined up from Pete Heller, Pig and Dan, Paul Woolford and Robag Wruhme.
