Grammy Award winning writer, producer and contemporary music visionary William Orbit returns with an eagerly anticipated new album 'Hello Waveforms' on Sanctuary Records in February 2006.

His first solo release since 2000's critically acclaimed 'Pieces in a Modern Style', the new album is performed and produced by William. 'Hello Waveforms' is ethereal, ambient, subtle and distinctive in style, fusing strong melodies with electronic synths to produce his definitive signature sound.

Recorded in London and America, the new album features a collection of collaborations and influences - the track 'Humming Chorus' is taken from Madame Butterfly, 'Spiral' features the Sugababes and Kenna on vocals, while Finley Quaye plays acoustic guitar on the dreamlike 'Who Owns The Octopus?'.

William has also reunited with his former Strange Cargo band member Laurie Mayer, who plays piano and synthesizer on 'Surfin' and provides vocals on the tracks 'Bubble Universe' and 'Who Owns the Octopus?'.

An artist who individually determined the new age of modern mixer/producer credibility, William's most high profile projects to date include his contributions to Madonna's 'Ray Of Light' album - which he produced, co-wrote and performed - U2's 'Electrical Storm', Blur's '13', which he also produced, and his smash-hit single 'Barber's Adagio For Strings'. In addition to this, in 2001 he performed as part of Barbican's celebrated Elektronik Festival.

From his early Strange Cargo work, througo to his work as a producer with everyone from Beth Orton to All Saints and Madonna, William Orbit is one of the seminal producers of the dance music scene, and 'Hello Waveforms' will be another addition to an already impressive legacy.
