It’s their first LP since 2018.

Orbital is back with the announcement of their forthcoming album, ‘Optical Delusion’. The studio LP is the Hartnoll brothers’ tenth studio album and is scheduled for release via London Records on February 17th, 2023.

Comprised of ten new original cuts, ‘Optical Delusion’ sees the duo treading through rave-laced techno, trance, and breakbeat. The new LP also includes collaboration with Penelope Isles, Anna B Savage, The Mediaeval Baebes, The Little Pest, Coppe, Dina Ipavic, and Sleaford Mods.

In line with the announcement, Orbital has also shared the official music video for ‘Dirty Rat’, their collaboration with Sleaford Mods. Paul Hartnoll describes the track as an “old school dance music vibe with bits of Cabaret Voltaire in there, even bits of The Shamen. It’s a little bit punk rock, nice and loud.”
