Orbital reissues now on sale

News / Preorders / May 27, 2015

Deluxe vinyl reissues of the first two albums by seminal English trance duo Orbital are now available for pre-order through Amazon (and through What Records in the UK). Orbital (Green Album) (1991) and Orbital 2 (Brown Album) (1993) will be presented as 180-gram 2xLP’s, courtesy of reissue mavens Rhino Records.

While you may not be especially familiar with Orbital’s work, you’ve almost certainly heard Brown Album‘s breakout track “Halcyon + On + On” featured in (among other things) Mean Girls, Mortal Kombat, Hackers, and CKY2. Yup, it’s that kind of song. Listen to all 9:27 of it below.

Amazon lists the albums’ release date as July 31, but UK retailers have them earmarked for June 29. It’s hard to say when the reissues will actually drop, but it’s fair to assume that Amazon is maintaining a conservative release window.
