8:58 collaboration with Paul Hartnoll by steve
Orbital's Paul Hartnoll is releasing his 8:58 project's debut album on 30th March & it will feature our Bob plus a cover of A Forest with vocals by The Unthanks.
There will also be a deluxe edition featuring an instrumental version of A Forest
He did play the cover on Lauren Laverne's show back at the end of 2013, but it looks like it'll now be on this album :D

You can hear Please right HERE. It starts at 2.07.30 (ish) so you'll need to FFWD it. But this linky will die 30 days after the original broadcast.

8:58 is the upcoming first album of Paul Hartnoll's new project titled 8:58 - he states that the album is a continuation of his work with Orbital.The album features contributions from actor Cillian Murphy, folk band The Unthanks, singer-songwriter Ed Harcourt, Lisa Knapp, Robert Smith, Lianne Hall and Fable.  The song "Please" is a reworking of the track of the same name from the album The Ideal Condition, Paul Hartnoll's solo album. The track "A Forest" is a cover of The Cure's track of the same name.
