  • Orbital will release a new album in April called Wonky. It's been 22 years since Orbital released their first single, Chime, and nearly eight since their most recent LP, Blue Album, which came out just as they disbanded. Wonky will be the duo's first new body of work since they got back together in 2009. According to bandmember Paul Hartnoll, the duo are still going for the emotionally-loaded feel of their past records. "When I'm writing music, if it doesn't move you emotionally, it's not working," he says. "It has to give me butterflies. I have to make myself cry in the studio." Guest appearances come from American indie artist Zola Jesus UK rapper Lady Leshurr. You can download the track "Never" for free on Orbital's official website. Tracklist 01. One Big Moment 02.
