NeptunePinkFloyd.co.uk reports that electronic music pioneers The ORB have collaborated with guitarist David Gilmour for the group’s forthcoming album, Metallic Spheres, due out in October. According to the article, all artist royalties will be going to helping British hacker Gary McKinnon fight off extradition to the USA. Considering that some of The ORB’s music could be considered hacking to some degree, it would make sense that they would take to McKinnon’s cause.

Also, it would also make sense for them to be working with Gilmour, since they were often called “the Pink Floyd of ambient” by critics, and of course their Live ’93 album featured homage to the 1977 album Animals.
