Orbital to release greatest hits collection

'Orbital 20' includes new mixes from James Zabelia and Tom Middleton

Recently-reformed dance duo Orbital will release a 2CD greatest hits collection on June 8.

Entitled ‘Orbital 20’, the album includes new mixes of classic Orbital tracks from the likes of Herve, James Zabelia and Tom Middleton.

Speaking of the album in a statement, one half of the dance duo, Paul Hartnoll called ‘Orbital 20’ an essential release.


“This compilation is the most definitive summary of our work since ‘Chime’ came out in 1989″, he said. “It’s a great introduction, or indeed a reminder, of the story so far…”

‘Chime’ (Live Style Mix)
‘Halcyon’ (Tom Middleton Re-Model)
‘Lush 3’
‘Impact’ (Live From Royal Albert Hall)
‘Are We Here (Who Are They)’
