Ahead of their North American live dates this Spring in New York, Chicago, Miami and California, Orbital has announced the reissue of their seminal self-titled 1991 debut album, known as “The Green Album,” on April 19 via London Records. All tracks have been fully remastered by Phil and Paul Hartnoll for the very first time. Originally released on September 30, 1991, “The Green Album” contains their breakthrough 1990 single “Chime.”
33 years after its initial release, and over 10 years since last pressed on vinyl, the remastered Green Album arrives ahead of the recently updated The Green + Brown Album Tour, which will see the electronic music duo revisit and reinterpret both albums in their entirety, including performing several of the tracks live for the very first time. The tour will start in New York on March 22, followed by a date in Chicago on March 23. Orbital will next appear at Miami’s Ultra Music Festival, and Coachella Festival in California on Saturday, April 13 and 20 before returning for the UK leg.
Since reuniting with London Records, Orbital have released the 2022 compilation 30 Something, which contained reworks, remakes, remixes and re-imaginings of their tracks, and last year’s critically acclaimed new studio album Optical Delusion.
