Orbital announce details of new album ‘Wonky’

Zola Jesus will feature on dance duo's first album for eight years

Orbital have announced details of their new album ‘Wonky’.

The dance duo will release the album, which is their first since 2004’s ‘Blue Album’ and their first release since they returned from an indefinite hiatus, on April 1. The album was recorded in Brighton and mixed by Depeche Mode/U2 knob twiddler Flood.

‘Wonky’ is the duo’s eighth studio album and will feature collaborations with Zola Jesus and UK MC Lady Leshurr. There is currently no confirmed full tracklisting for the album.


Orbital will tour the UK in support of the album in early April and play six shows. The trek begins at Manchester’s Academy on April 5 and runs until April 10, when the duo headline London’s Royal Albert Hall.

The band released a track from ‘Wonky’ late last year. You can hear the song, which is titled ‘Never’, by scrolling down to the bottom of the page and clicking. The track is also available for free download from the duo’s official website Orbitalofficial.com.
