The new album from former Orbital man Paul Hartnoll aka Eight Fifty Eight is full of inspiring collaborations - from The Cure's Robert Smith to Hollywood actor/musician Cillian Murphy.
“I’ve always been interested in time, I’ve always had a thing for clocks, and for time as a powerful force — but also the way time oppresses you. It’s one of those things I keep coming back to.
"The album’s a development of where I was going with Orbital, Our last album ‘Wonky’ was designed to be played live. But I wanted to do something more collaborative, more of a film soundtrack or a concept album. There are plenty of beats, But I wanted to exercise my more compositional side too, and bring in a witchy, ‘Wicker Man’ aspect.”
