Following reports in 2009 that David Gilmour was working with The Orb on a new album, confirmed details have been released.
'Metallic Spheres' will be released in multiple formats worldwide in October this year, date to be confirmed shortly, and all artist royalties will go to helping Gary McKinnon's campaign against his extradition.
In addition to the standard album, there will be a 'Deluxe' double-disc version: the first disc is the same as the standard, the second is a 3D60™ version, which, as the name suggests, allows you to listen in glorious three-dimensional sound.
3D60™ is a new sound production process developed by Youth, Mike Brady (The Jam's live sound engineer) and Ian Thompson (musician and multimedia producer). You don't need any special equipment to enjoy 3D60™, by the way; it will sound amazing on any headphones in any format.
