With their eagerly-awaited new album landing in just a few weeks, Orbital have now dropped the next cut to be lifted from their forthcoming full-length.
The new single 'Are You Alive?' sees them team up with Penelope Isles for the release, and follows on from the previously shared tracks 'Dirty Rat' ft. Sleaford Mods, and 'Ringa Ringa (The Old Pandemic Folk Song)' ft. The Mediaeval Baebes in previewing their new LP 'Optical Delusion', which is out on the 17th February.
Speaking about the new offering, the duo's Paul Hartnoll said, "Are You Alive came about when I had the instrumental and felt it could do with a delicate vocal," Paul continues. "Enter Penelope Isles! They took it away and Lily came up with some killer hooks, we spent a day rearranging the song and Hey Presto! Are You Alive was born. But don't be fooled by the sweetness of the sound, the lyrics have some bite. It's a dog-eat-dog world..."
