After a long break in album releases, Orbital return with a new album titled Wonky on Apr. 1. The album features work with Zola Jesus, Lady Leshurr and the infamous Flood as producer. Given the date, let's hope it's not a joke. Check out the new Orbital video for the song "Never" above.
It'll be the first new full length release of new music from Orbital since the Blue album in 2004. During that time, Orbital took a break, then eventually started playing live again, like when they played the Sonar Festival and The Big Chill in 2009. The emergence of playing shows again is what brought their music back to life. “That was really beneficial to our writing. Trying out tracks in front of audiences, listening through their ears, getting responses. That’s been a really good string to our bow,” said Phil Hartnoll when speaking to Clash Music.
