Listen to Orbital's rework of their politically-charged track 'P.H.U.K.U.'

Ahead of their upcoming album 'Monsters Exist' (set to arrive on September 14), seminal duo Orbital have reworked an original off their own LP with the premiere of 'P.H.U.K.U.'

Reimagining 'P.H.U.K.' from their nine-track album, brothers Paul and Phil Hartnoll have transformed the politically-charged track into a darker translation and added a new mix from Steve Dub. "[We] went into this remix with the idea to focus on the breakbeat part of 'P.H.U.K.' and start with the breakdown," says Phil. "This is the result of those ideas."

The original track tackled the heated status of the UK's political climate and Brexit, mimicking the anxiety felt by many through tense, frenetic sounds.

After splitting in 2012, Orbital took a six year hiatus and are now back on the map with their upcoming 'Monsters Exist' release.

Check out the first listen and premiere of 'P.H.U.K.U.' below.
