ORBITAL are back with a new single, album, tour, gigs, videos – the whole shootin’ match.
‘The Middle Of Nowhere’, which is released on ffrr on April 5, was written and recorded in a year at the Hartnoll brothers’ home studio in Shoreditch, London, the follow-up to 1996’s ‘In/Sides’ was originally due out last year, but the takeover of their label by Seagram delayed it.
The full track-listing for the album is
‘Way Out’ ‘Spare Parts Express’ ‘Knowhere To Run’ ‘I Don’t Know You People’ ‘Otoqo’ ‘Nothing Left (One)’ ‘Nothing Left (Two)’ ‘Style’
The single ‘Style’ is released on March 1 (Click here for a clip from the video. If you haven’t got the player click here.). Orbital worked with Sharon Lewis and Natasha Jones of Pooka on ‘Otoqo’. The band embark on a 15-date tour at Exeter University (March 14) and have announced an extra date at London Brixton Academy (March 28).
nme.com has broken into the boot of Paul Hartnoll‘s car and swiped a bunch of goodies that we have to unload in a hurry before the cops get us.
We’ve got 10 videos for the new single ‘Style’, 10 very collectable promo CDs and 10 tickets for a special Radio 1 Orbital launch party at the London Brixton Mass on March 8 to give away. All we need is some information.
