The Orb is doing an album with David Gilmour. !!!!

David Gilmour + ambient music = pinkstones in 7th heaven. It comes out October 12th and I'm buying it on vinyl.


You can watch the EPK for the record -- looks and sounds phenomenally interesting. :D

One of the great things about being a Songfactor is that we can hear a song and ask the band about it.

I'm not huge into the Electropop stuff that's big these days, but this one rises above the rest. You can play the video from the page and check out what the band told us about the song:

Internet Killed the Video Star - The Limousines
