A retrospective set called '30 Something' will be released across two CDs and four pieces of vinyl

Orbital have revealed a new retrospective album to mark their 30th anniversary as a duo.

Titled 30 Something, the double-CD, 4xLP set includes three new tracks by the duo, as well as new reworks by Orbital of classic tracks such as 'Chime' and 'Belfast'. They've also enlisted a number of producers to remix some of their old tracks, with the likes of Shanti Celeste, Jon Hopkins and Octave One among those receiving the nod.

"What's been amazing for me is looking at our past and thinking of all the people who've come to see us, they are absolutely brilliant, warm and create such an amazing vibe," said Orbital's Phil Hartnoll in a statement. "They are now bringing their kids to our gigs, they love it."

Orbital Recordings Ltd. will release 30 Something on July 15, 2022.
