Why do we like this?

Prepare for a journey through time, space, and sound design. Audial veterans The Orb have released "5th Dimension," the first offering from their 16th studio album, COW/ Chill Out, World!

While this definitely isn't a track you'll see lighting up blogs, its ability to induce peace and evoke nostalgia resonated with me. I remember discovering The Orb's "Little Fluffy Clouds" when I was 16. Their ability to tell a story through samples completely changed my perspective on the potential of sound. Seeing their name in my inbox brought me back to that time when I was first fascinated by their music. 

"5th Dimension" is an organic and tranquil cut that deserves to be listened to through quality headphones. Perfect for rising slow, sipping tea, deep breathing, or reading, the interdimensional track will transport you to a serene locale among the chaos of reality. 

According to the duo:

“We didn’t intend to rehash old chill out vibes. On the contrary. It’s the 21st century and it seems like a good idea for people to sit back and chill the fuck out, before continuing to act destructively. To chill out is to act consciously, guided from a calm centre.”

The track will join 9 others on the upcoming album, described as the most ambient yet, and will be followed by a UK Tour. Get centered and get ready for Chill Out, World! available October 14 through Kompakt.
