New Order have announced reissued editions of their classic compilation album Substance 1987, released via Warner on 10th November.

The 2023 collection will be available in 2LP, 2CD, 4CD deluxe edition, 2LP coloured vinyl and 2 cassettes. Also being made available are reissues of the 12” singles True Faith, True Faith Remix and Blue Monday 88

Originally released via Factory Records, Substance compiled all of the band’s singles to that point in their 12” versions with many of their respective B-sides (on the CD and cassette versions), and specially new recorded versions of Temptation and Confusion.

The album also included the biggest selling 12” single of all time, Blue Monday, alongside other singles The Perfect Kiss, Bizarre Love Triangle and the band’s debut single release Ceremony

The album is the band’s biggest selling to date, with over one million copies sold, going platinum in the US with a Top 5 hit in True Faith

This new remastered collection includes double vinyl album, double CD with b-sides, double cassette and an expanded 4CD collection.

The 4CD version includes the original 2CD set remastered with two additional CDs. CD3 expands the collection with alternate versions and extra b-sides.

CD4 features an unreleased concert, Live From Irvine Meadows, California 1987, where the band uniquely played the entire album in sequence. 

Substance 1987 remaster will also be available on 2LP – blue/red colour vinyl (retail exclusive) and double cassette – (New Order Store exclusive).
