Metallic Spheres is a collaboration between David Gilmour, the voice and guitar of Pink Floyd, and The Orb, the renowned British ambient/house collective. Together, they created a two-part sonic mixture in a range of styles combining David's unique guitars and The Orb's crafted sound manipulations.

David's 2009 jam session with ambient collective The Orb has grown into an album, Metallic Spheres. David's contribution to the charity song Chicago, in aid of Gary McKinnon, sparked the interest of producer Youth (Martin Glover), who remixed the track and invited David to his studio for a recording session. With additional contributions from Orb co-founder Alex Paterson, the album took shape from 2009 into 2010, eventually becoming Metallic Spheres, to be released by The Orb featuring David Gilmour.

Metallic Spheres is designed to be heard in two parts – 'Metallic Side' (24'48"), and 'Spheres Side' (25'09") – each 'side' containing five movements. The album features David's guitar and lap steel guitar, plus some of his vocals from Chicago; Alex Paterson contributes sound manipulation, keyboards and turntables, while Youth adds bass and keyboards and handles the production.
