Richard Wright - Runaway singleDr Alex Patterson, head honcho of top ambient band The Orb which formed in the late 1980s and rose to prominence in the early 1990s, has recently been talking about the music that he has been working on. Patterson (as The Orb) remixed Richard Wright's Runaway in 1996, crafting two different versions of the track for a single release [cover shown to the right] from Richard's Broken China album.

Recently, Brain Damage regular Sander Evers chatted to Patterson after an Orb show in Amsterdam, and he revealed to Sander that he was currently working with David Gilmour on some new material. Talking to The List in an article posted yesterday, Patterson confirmed that "I've just started working on an album with David... which I think every Orb and Pink Floyd fan will want to hear."

As it sounds like it is in the very early stages, it might be a while before we have any update on this story for you, but rest assured, as soon as we know more, so will you. Sounds a fascinating prospect!
