Orbital will release their new album, 'Wonky' on the 1st April in the UK. The first studio album for eight years features vocals by Lady Lesurr and Zola Jesus.

Wonky was recorded in a small studio in Orbital's Brighton home base, then mixed in London with help from internationally acclaimed producer Mark 'Flood' Ellis, whose stellar list of previous collaborators includes PJ Harvey, U2, Nine Inch Nails and The Killers. Paul credits Flood with giving the album a more rounded, holistic sound.

'I mostly remember Flood from all the electronic stuff like Cabaret Voltaire, Depeche Mode and Renegade Soundwave,' Paul says. 'One of his first and greatest loves is electronic music. He's actually got a bigger synthesizer collection than us. He also has a good structural overview of music, because he's not just a dance producer, he comes from a more holistic song viewpoint, which is how we like to approach it. I didn't want to work with just a dance producer because I don¹t think this is a dance album, it¹s an electronic album.'
