Henry Johnstone, Sydney - Australia - on 10/2/12
In a forthcoming interview with Pulse Radio, The Orb's Alex Paterson has revealed exclusively that his new collaborative album with legendary reggae and dub musician Lee 'Scratch' Perry will be released this September.
Speaking of the album, Paterson said, "We wanted to do a souly type, modern, minimal album with some reggae influences with his [Lee 'Scratch' Perry's] vocals on top. I think its one of the best bits of work we’ve ever done."
Paterson, who is touring Australia this March as part of the Playground Weekender Festival, then went on to reveal news about the album's impending release, but not before mentioning that The Orb may in fact be returning to the country for a tour with Perry later this year.
"He’s gonna be coming out on tour with us as well. We’ll be doing festivals at the end of this year; hopefully we’ll be coming down to Australia again before Christmas," Paterson explained. "We’ve agreed to do a few festivals because the album’s coming out in September, and you just heard that first. I only got that information two days ago basically."
Fans of The Orb and Perry will no doubt be frothing to hear the new material the pair have conjured up, and Australian fans can hopefully expect a doube dose of The Orb this year!
