This is great news for all Orbital fans as we were lead to believe that the Blue Album (2004) would be their final bow-out. I suppose it would be difficult to keep playing live shows without writing anything new.
You can definitely hear the signature Orbital sound in the the track "Don't Stop Me" (video) but with newer elements as well. Though I'm on the fence regarding the vocals, I know how much P&P love the female voice so it's nothing out of the ordinary, and the rest of the production more than makes up for it. Anxious to hear the other "A-Side".
