Legendary dance duo Orbital are making a welcomed return to dance music in April with their first album for 8 years.
Called ‘Wonky’ it will be the 8th album from the duo and you can get a sample of what’s to come by listening to ‘Never’ below, which from early impressions shows the enigmatic duo might have finally mellowed a bit.
It’s going to be released April 1st and features collaborations with Zola Jesus and the hotly tipped UK rapper Lady Leshurr (so not bothered).
Wonky was recorded in Orbital’s Brighton home base, then mixed in London with internationally acclaimed producer Mark “Flood” Ellis, whose stellar list of previous collaborators includes PJ Harvey, U2 and Nine Inch Nails.
Following the album’s release Orbital will head out on a tour of the UK, finishing off at The Royal Albert Hall on the 10th.
