Ambient electronic duo, The Orb have announced the much anticipated second part to their History of the Future duology.

The release will feature rare tracks, some of which were previously only available on vinyl, as well as previously unseen footage.

The set kicks off with ‘Suck My Kiss’ from 1989’s ‘The Kiss EP’. However, the release focuses mainly on the band’s career in the 21st century with particular attention on the groundbreaking music the duo have produced over the last 15 years.

History of the Future Part 2 will also highlight their 2012 sessions with Lee ‘Scratch’ Perry with the track, ‘Fussball’ appearing in its Deadbeat remix incarnation.

The Orb’s History of The Future Part 2 will be released as 3CD and DVD boxset through Malicious Damage on the 16th February 2015.
