Track Of The Day: The Orb - '5th Dimensions'

Ambient legends The Orb have announced details of a new album, 'COW / Chill Out, World!', which will be released on the Kompakt label. The album is due in October and will be available on vinyl, CD and digital formats.

Alex Paterson describes COW / Chill Out, World! as "our most ambient album yet" and "a protest album in reverse." This idea is certainly evident on the superb new track '5th Dimensions', which is the first taste of the upcoming album. Thomas Fehlmann said: "We didn't intend to rehash old chill out vibes. On the contrary. It's the 21st century and it seems like a good idea for people to sit back and chill the fuck out, before continuing to act destructively. To chill out is to act consciously, guided from a calm centre." 

The Orb will be playing shows in the UK throughout November and December, performing their seminal debut LP 'Adventures Beyond The Ultraworld', along with tracks from 'COW/Chill Out, World!' and some of The Orb's best-loved songs.
