New Order announce new album Music Complete
New Order return on September 25 with new album Music Complete, their first since 2005’s Waiting For The Sirens Call.
It’s the band’s first since signing to new label Mute last year, and their first with keyboardist Gillian Gilbert since she left the band for family reasons after 2001’s Get Ready.
It’s also New Order’s first album without founding bassist Peter Hook, who has been replaced with Tom Chapman, formerly of Bernard Sumner and Stephen Morris’ New Order offshoot band Bad Lieutenant.
Music Complete is produced by New Order, apart from Singularity and Unlearn This Hatred, which were produced by Tom Rowlands of The Chemical Brothers.
Art direction is by the band’s regular designer and news of live shows is promised “soon” in a statement. A 34-second segment of new music can be heard here:
Bernard Sumner is interviewed in the current issue of Classic Pop, hinting that Music Complete will be a return to New Order’s electronic roots. Singularity and Plastic have been previewed live since the band reformed for live shows in 2012.
The full tracklisting of Music Complete is:
‘People On The High Line’
‘Nothing But A Fool’
‘Unlearn This Hatred’
