Orbital are streaming their new studio album 'Wonky' exclusively through NME.COM – scroll down to the bottom of the page and click to listen.

The album, which is the dance duo's first LP since their 2004 effort 'Blue Album', is out now, but has been made available to listen to online. Orbital have also produced a video track-by-track guide to the new LP, in which they explain the process behind the new record, which you can watch by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking.

'Wonky' is the pair's eighth studio LP, and was recorded in Brighton and mixed by Depeche Mode/U2 knob twiddler Flood. It also features collaborations with Zola Jesus and UK MC Lady Leshurr.

Speaking about the title track - the video for which was produced by, and stars, comedian Mat Horne - the band's Phil Hartnoll said: "This is one of our key tracks from DJing last summer, one that came out of nowhere. We were so surprised by the reaction to this, it just went down really well. Right at the last minute we got Lady Leshurr to do her vocal, in one of our 'correction sessions' for the album, after we had been DJing it. It turned out brilliantly."

Earlier today, it was revealed that Orbital will headline the Slam Tent at this year's T In The Park festival on its final night (July 8). The Scottish festival will be headlined by The Stone Roses, Kasabian and Snow Patrol and takes place over the weekend of July 6-8 in Balado Park, Kinross.
