DAVID GILMOUR TO COLLABORATE WITH THE ORB ON FORTHCOMING LP
On October 5th, Columbia Records will be releasing Metallic Spheres, a unique collaboration between Pink Floyd guitarist David Gilmour and British ambient superstars The Orb, who are no strangers to the music of Floyd, having done several trance remixes of their most beloved songs (see below).
"Together, they created a two-part sonic mixture in a range of styles combining David's unique guitars and The Orb's crafted sound manipulations", states the product description on Amazon.
It is rumored that renowned producer Martin "Youth" Glover of Killing Joke is also involved in the project as well.
For longtime fans of both parties, this is certainly a collaboration to very much look forward to; let's just hope that the results are more in line with Meddle and Zabriskie Point than The Division Bell.
